Michel went on to work across France before serving his time for military service at the Elysee Palace. Roux finally joined his uncle in 1985 at the Waterside Inn, before moving to his father’s restaurant, La Gavroche in April the same year. By 1993, Michel father, Albert retired, leaving Michel to take over the reigns of La Gavroche and the prominent position of being the head chef of one of the finest culinary destinations in the world.
