There’s no escaping Michel Roux Jr now that he is the frontman for BBC Two’s revamped programme, Food & Drink as well as making regular appearances as a judge on MasterChef. The French perfectionist is eager to share his skills with his latest book, Cooking With The Master Chef, in which he shares some of his signature dishes as well as French classics, reworked for the home-cook of course. Certainly one for the more experienced in the kitchen, Roux’s recipes range from mastering croissants to smoked eel and carrot salad and a salted caramel walnut tart.
