Famous chef Albert Roux has died aged 85 after a long illness. Along with his brother Michel (who died last year) he ran Mayfair’s Le Gavroche, the first British restaurant to win three Michelin stars. The restaurant serves French cuisine, was a favourite of the Queen Mum’s, and has a three month reservation list. At a price of £76 per person, I don’t think I’ll be visiting any time soon. He also trained Gordon Ramsey as a chef, an action which might yet make all his other efforts to improve the word in vain. Roux was picked by 2 theme teams.
