Chef Emily Roux to teach new style of cooking at Crossbasket Castle

Chef Emily Roux, the youngest member of the world-famous culinary dynasty, is giving Glasgow food lovers the chance to learn how to cook classic dishes with a contemporary twist at Crossbasket Castle later this month. Emily will teach how to cook two recipes specially created for the event – gnocchi with mushrooms, chorizo and brown butter –
followed by carrot cake with chocolate ganache and whisky jelly for dessert.

The menu is inspired by Emily’s first cookbook, New French Table which she launched with her mother Giselle last year. The event on 18th January, which costs £60 per person, will also give guest the chance to enjoy Emily’s signature style and tuck into the menu.

Speaking of the event, Emily Roux told Glasgowist: “With January a month when many people are looking to try out new skills in the kitchen and eager for food inspiration, I’m excited to share some of my new recipes and tips for creating warming, uplifting, colorful and tasty food which is perfect for the cold wintery months.

“I’ve had great opportunities to work with some of the world’s best chefs and of course cooking is such a big part my family life. I’m really looking forward to sharing my skills with other food lovers.”

Honing her skills at some of the top restaurants in Europe, Emily has worked at Institut Paul Bocuse in Lyon and other well-regarded French establishments, La Table du Lancaster, Akrame and Le Louis XV – Alain Ducasse at the Hôtel de Paris.

The hotel, based on the outskirts of Glasgow is home to the Roux family restaurant, Albert & Michel Roux Jr at Crossbasket Castle, which Emily has played a key role in supporting since it opened in 2015. The restaurant offers an intimate setting, seating up to 25 and run by chefs trained in Roux kitchens, whose graduates include Marco Pierre White, Marcus Wareing and Andrew Fairlie.
