Andrew Fairlie is to welcome father and son Michel and Alain Roux to his two-Michelin-starred eponymous restaurant in October as the three chefs offer guests a unique opportunity to dine as part of a two-night collaboration.
The event at Gleneagles in Auchterarder, Perthshire, will be the first time Michel and Alain have hosted an event together outside the three-Michelin-starred Waterside Inn in Bray.
The chefs have created a six-course menu, which will include signature dishes from both landmark restaurants and will be accompanied by selected Champagnes and wines.
Dishes will include the Waterside’s terrine of foie gras and chicken breast coated in pistachio nuts, served with grapes marinated in ratafia, paired with a Jurançon Moelleux from the Pyrenees, and Fairlie’s signature home-smoked Scottish lobster accompanied by magnums of Krug Grande Cuvée Champagne.
Alain Roux said: “I have dined in Andrew’s beautiful dining room in the care of his impressive front of house brigade many times. I can’t wait to return to the restaurant, but this time to cook alongside Andrew and his team.”
Since becoming the first Roux Scholar in 1984, Fairlie has developed a close relationship with the Roux family.
Michel Roux added: “Andrew Fairlie’s restaurant is a temple of gastronomy in Scotland. I am so proud of my first scholar. His achievement is remarkable and I can’t wait to see him again in action at the helm of his enterprise.”
Restaurant Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles celebrates its 15th anniversary this year.
Fairlie said: “Fifteen years is a milestone in the journey for any restaurant, and I simply couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate this at my restaurant. My team and I are very excited about cooking alongside Alain – who is undoubtedly one of the finest chefs in the UK – with the rare and special honour of having my mentor and great friend Michel looking over our shoulders. This unique event is itself another milestone.”
