Students cook for Mr Roux

ALBERT ROUX had a surprise for the six students competing for the grand prize of a six-month placement at one of his restaurants.

So impressed was he at the standard of their cooking, that he produced another two prizes out of his chef’s hat – two-week placements at La Gavroche in London (run by Albert’s son, Masterchef judge Michel Roux Jnr), and at Gullane.
