Albert Roux is well known not only in culinary circles but now also in every home due to the popularity of TV cooking programs. He ran three times Michelin Star restaurant Le Gavroche with his brother Michel. Yesterday he was in Dublin celebrating Irish Food and remembering fondly his holidays on the Ring of Kerry over a 10 year period.

In this Irish Times article by Alison Healy, Roux says he would like to return to Ireland, taking a horse and carriage and travelling slowly around Kerry for a week or two.

“It would be a sentimental journey. I’d like that.”

That sounds like a grand plan Albert. You would be very welcome here too!
