The ultimate culinary experience …recreate the Roux magic at home!

We are delighted to unveil our exciting, state-of-the-art new Culinary School and Michel Roux Library, based at The Waterside Inn. A first for a three Michelin starred restaurant in the UK, the School is an inspired conversion of Alain’s late father, Michel Roux OBE’s riverside home, with interiors designed by Alain’s wife Laura Roux. Created as a unique centre of culinary education and training for our own kitchen and front of house staff, we can’t wait to share it with our wonderful guests too.

A variety of bespoke, unique cookery classes, courses, demonstrations, and immersive masterclass packages will be on offer, to enjoy in a fun, relaxed and beautiful setting. Already boasting one of the best training kitchens dedicated to classic French cuisine in the UK, The Waterside Inn’s new School elevates the Roux culinary legacy, offering an exciting resource for people who share the Roux family’s passion for food and hospitality.

Cook with us and we will help you gain a better understanding of the products, the best cooking methods and techniques, not to mention the three Michelin star tips that make all the difference ….!
