2007 Roux Scholar Armand Sablon moves on from Galvin at Windows

Armand Sablon, the 2007 Roux Scholar, will be part of the brigade at the new London restaurant of French chef Jean-Christophe Ansanay-Alex, Caterersearch has learnt.

Sablon said: "I've had six fantastic years working with Andre Garrett, first at Orrery and then at Windows, and I felt it was time to move on.

"I always wanted to work for a two-Michelin-starred chef in England and I always wanted to work in a top French kitchen. This way I get the best of both worlds without leaving London."

Ansanay-Alex, although relatively unknown in the UK, is highly regarded in France where he is chef-patron of the two-Michelin-starred Auberge de I'Ile on the I'Ile de Barbe, an island on the river Rhone in Lyons.

Sablon will be travelling to Lyon to work alongside Ansanay-Alex and familiarise himself with the latter's cuisine style prior to the London restaurant's opening.
