5 minutes with Michel Roux

We found a quick five minutes to catch up with the very busy chef himself:

Where do you look for cooking inspiration?

I look to the current season and old cookery books for inspiration.

Do you think it’s possible for anyone to become a good cook?

Yes, I believe anyone can be a great chef if they have the right kit and read my books of course!

If you could throw your dream dinner party, which five famous people (dead or alive) would you invite?

My dream guests would be Eric Cantona, Napoleon, Serge Blanco, Duke of Wellington and Escoffier.

If you weren’t a chef, what would you like to be doing?

I love running, enjoy staying fit and have undertaken numerous marathons so I’d probably be a long distance runner.

What do you like to do to relax in your spare time?

Whenever I get the chance to relax I enjoy running, and watching the football and rugby.
