The Langham in London is to launch a cookery school fronted by executive chef Chris King and Michel Roux Jr, who oversees Roux at the Landau and the Wigmore pub at the hotel.
Sauce by The Langham will offer a range of classes, from core skills such as knife skills, baking and sauce making to more complex techniques and masterclasses.
The hotel's executive pastry chef Andrew Gravett will offer pâtisserie courses, while students will also be offered the opportunity to explore the Roux archive through masterclasses with Michel Roux and hotel classics with Chris King.
Michel Roux Jr added that the new facilities, modelled on a farmhouse kitchen for up to 12 people, would be exceptional. "We're going to have a perfect environment to share our passion for good food with like-minded home cooks at whatever their skill level," he said. "Cooking should be first and foremost enjoyable, and we're looking forward to providing a real confidence boost so that everyone can be proud of what they achieve."
Chris King, who will be sharing his experience in Cook the Books classes, said: "Sauce is a great opportunity for our brigade to share their passion for good food and show their love for our industry. I'm fortunate at The Langham, London to work with some very talented and energetic chefs who have so much to teach; every class will be packed full of learning, with a pinch fun."
Sauce by The Langham will be launched in May 2019.Get The Caterer every week on your smartphone, tablet, or even in good old-fashioned hard copy (or all three!).
