Albert Roux started his apprenticeship at age 14 in 1949, at Patisserie Leclerc, St Mande sur Seine, Paris. Following a three year stint in the military in Algeria, he worked as a private chef for Lady Astor in Nancy; at the French Embassy in London; Chef de Cuisine to Sir Charles Clore; Sous Chef at the British Embassy in Paris; and Chef to Peter Cazelet at Fairlawn, Tonbridge, Kent.
In 1999, the Great Chefs team were scheduled to film Michel Jr, but when they arrived, Michel was stuck in Barcelona after the World Cup, so Albert came out of semi-retirement and prepared four of the below dishes for us. Everyone stopped what they were doing in the kitchen to watch Chef Albert working the line. It was exciting.
