Michel Roux Jr is one of London's most respected chefs. Le Gavroche, the restaurant which he has run since 1994, continues to receive recommendations for excellence in every food guide. Michel's early training in France instilled in him a belief in the simplicity and quality of raw ingredients which he has put to use in developing the recipes that he cooks when he is training for a marathon. Michel has successfully completed the London, New York, Monaco, Tromso (in Norway's Arctic circle) and Medoc marathons. His best time is 3 hours 15 minutes.Review:
