Brian In California With The Roux Scholars

Posted on 22nd March 2017

EVERY TWO YEARS, the Roux family takes a group of scholars on a culinary trip of a lifetime. Each tour is thrillingly bespoke. In Japan 2012,

the group prepared a banquet for 120 invited guests at a gala dinner

held at Hotel Peninsula in Tokyo that raised over £100,000 for the Tsunami

fund. And in New York 2014, they were treated to dinner in the private

dining room at Per Se, prepared and served by three-star Michelin legends

Thomas Keller, Daniel Boulud and Jean-Georges Vongerichten.


Last year, 11 scholars, including Andrew Fairlie, the first ever winner of the Roux Scholarship, joined Michel Roux, Alain Roux and Brian Turner on a gastronomic tour of California.


The five-day itinerary began in San Francisco, with visits to a selection of the region’s finest restaurants and tourist attractions. The best artisan bakeries, cafés and late-night bars were also on the menu, followed by wine tasting at some of the top vineyards in Napa Valley.
