Albert Roux OBE said: “Our successful partnership with Jockey Club Catering means we are able to deliver an unrivalled race going experience at some of the UK’s most iconic sporting venues. It is always a privilege to share a kitchen with Michel and Emily so I am delighted on the occasions that they can join me this racing season.”
Nick Campbell, managing director Jockey Club Catering, added: “Our aim is to deliver the best possible experience for our guests through high quality food and drink. Since we introduced Chez Roux in 2015 it has gone from strength to strength so I am naturally thrilled to have Albert back in the kitchens with Michel and Emily coming along to support and I look forward to seeing the culinary delights they will create together.”
