Cooking the Roux Way


Spend the day with rising stars of Albert and Michel Roux Jr's restaurants, Steve Groves, Chris King, Rachel Humphrey and Toby Stuart. Cooking seasonal menus master new skills and techniques and get a taste of the professional kitchen. These fun, practical, hands-on cooking classes are the perfect treat for the keen amateur chef.

;

First choose your menu

Each Cooking the Roux Way class is built around a selection of inspiring, three-course seasonal menus. Choose from the Chef's Table or Entertaining the Roux Way. Guided by a hand-picked Roux-trained chef learn new skills, explore new ingredients and grow in kitchen confidence.

Your day in our kitchen

We don't just show you how to cook a delicious three course menu, we teach you to think about the way you cook. So as your chef demonstrates how it's done, ask lots of questions and be prepared for surprises. Like listening to the sound of sugar caramelising and knowing when not to stir a saucepan. Is there a best way to fillet a fish? How do you get a soufflé to rise every time? And just what do chefs do with all those parsley stalks in their freezers?
  • Gill's review of Cooking the Roux Way " Thank you to all the staff at Cactus Kitchens for such an amazing day. From the minute I walked through the door, everyone made me feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Chris King was simply brilliant and he went out of his way to help and make sure that everyone produced wonderful dishes. "
  • Val's review of Cooking the Roux Way Experience " A fabulous day which was over far too soon! Well organised, ran smoothly with lots of hands-on practical assistance not only from Chef Toby Stuart but also from the very attentive, knowledgeable and enthusiastic team. A great opportunity to build confidence, learn, refresh skills and ask plenty of questions in a well equipped kitchen using good ingredients. "
  • Lizette's review of Cooking the Roux Way Experience: " I had a WONDERFUL day. I arrived back in South Africa on Friday and I just want to pack my bags and come back to the UK ... and attend more, “Cooking the Roux Way” classes. It was a fantastic experience. Steve was great and I learnt all kinds of wonderful things. Loved every moment and will do it again on my next visit to the UK. "
  • Patricia's review of Cooking the Roux Way Experience: " Thank you for my wonderful day with Steve Groves. I enjoyed every minute & learned such a lot from working and dressing live crab to the steamed scallops in their shells. The staff were just amazing, nothing was to much trouble from the top man to the person who came and washed your used pans and cleaned your work station down. Would really recommend this, now looking forward to my next cooking adventure. "
  • Elaine's review of Cooking the Roux Way " A very big thank you to everyone who made the course with Steve Groves a very enjoyable day. The individual kitchens were a pleasure to work in and the staff are a credit to you. Having done a number of these cookery schools with other well-known chefs,including Raymond Blanc, Mark Tillings and Alan Murchinson this one certainly did not disappoint. "

Savour a sense of achievement

Throughout your cookery class your chef, and our two assistants will be on hand to guide you. But it's not all hard work. Pause from cooking to enjoy each dish on your menu, paired with expertly chosen wines. Your chef will join you for a glass in our dining room at the end of the day. Take home the recipes and skills to replicate the dishes in your own kitchen and the confidence to experiment with new ingredients.
