The Roux Scholarship

RouxlogoOnly thirty years ago the first winner of the Roux Scholarship, Andrew Fairlie, wrote a couple of French chefs for a job application. Only one of them replied and said: Non merci. The reason being the image. British chefs weren’t considered capable of true gastronomy.

Now in its 34th year, the Scholarship offers the winner a career changing opportunity: a three month stage at a three star Michelin restaurant anywhere in the world. In addition to many other fabulous prizes.

But that’s just the beginning. The winner is then part of an elite club and on a fast track to the profession. The Roux Scholarship is the premier competition for young chefs in the UK and ranks amongst the most prestigious around the world.
