He’s a grand figure even tho compact of stature. Legendary French chef, Albert Roux will open Chez Roux at Greywalls, the classic country house hotel located just forty minutes from Edinburgh. The restaurant opens in May as part of Greywalls’ opening in the Spring.
Roux, who became the first chef in the United Kingdom to be awarded three Michelin stars, has expressed that his menu at Greywalls will boast “French classical cuisine with a flair and lightness, using local product as much as possible.” So that’s al right then.
Roux’s menu will include dishes such as ‘Seared Scallops, Pea Puree and Stornaway Black Pudding, Cider Butter Sauce’ and ‘Supreme Free Range Guinea Fowl, Morel Mushrooms and Madeira Jus.’ The mouth watering dishes will be enjoyed in Greywalls’ traditional Scottish country style restaurant which overlooks Muirfield’s tenth tee, which will once again host The Open Championship in 2013.
Designed by Edwardian architect Sir Edward Lutyens in 1901, the hotel has stayed true to its roots and today still retains the original classical style for which it is renowned. Surrounded by golf courses, the house offers 23 en suite bedrooms, beautiful public rooms including a dedicated whiskey room and traditional style library, elegant walled gardens, two tennis courts, a putting green and a croquet lawn.
