Bringing the flavours of France to our shores
If you are a lover of French cuisine you may be interested to know that there are a number of authentic French restaurants here in the UK. Each of them brings a different environment to enjoy the delights of French food in but what they all have in common is the passion for the food they are serving, the chic yet elegant service provided, and the state of the art equipment found in the kitchen such as 4 burner gas oven, commercial ice cream makers and blast chillers. If you are looking for similar equipment for perhaps a food business you manage it is worth taking a look at https://www.247cateringsupplies.co.uk/catering-appliances/commercial-ovens-and-ranges/commercial-ranges/lincat-slr6-silverlink-600-4-burner-gas-range-oven .
Anyway, back to the restaurants. Here is a list of three of the most famous French restaurants here in the United Kingdom.
- Topping the list is Le Gavroche. This London restaurant is managed by non-other than Michel Roux Jr. His father Albert originally ran the restaurant until 1991. It has over the years been awarded three Michelin stars and was the first UK restaurant to receive both one, two and three stars. Here you will find a mixture of classic French dishes along with some more modern ones. The restaurant boasts an impressive list of well known chefs including Marco Pierre White and Gordon Ramsay.
- Waterside Inn in Bray is the Roux family’s alternative restaurant to those located in London. It first opened in 1972 by Micehel and Albert Roux and is the first restaurant (outside of France) to keep its three Michelin starts for over twenty-five years. The restaurant is currently run by Alain who is Michel’s son. The Inn also provides rooms for guests to stay in and it is decorated internally in a French style by Michel’s wife.
- Le Manoir aux Quat Saisons in Great Milton is a country house hotel which is run by Raymond Blanc. It also has two Michelin stars and can seat up to 260 guests each day. The hotel has its owned gardens which produces some of the food used in the restaurant and also has its own helipad that is utilised by visiting high profile guests. Le Manoir is another restaurant with an impressive list of previous chefs including Heston Blumenthal, Marco Pierre White and Elisha Carter.
That is a small snapshot of just three of the many French restaurants here in the UK.
