Chez Roux At La Torretta Resort

Chez Roux At La Torretta Resort

Montgomery, TX

I am a Francophile at heart, so it was with barely contained excitement that I attended the cooking class offered at Chez Roux, the only namesake of Michelin Chef Albert Roux, owner of the famed Le Gavroche in London. Unbeknownst to me, and a special treat indeed, Chef Albert Roux himself was in attendance during one of his 4 yearly visits to the restaurant. OMG. Yay! A Frenchman speaking English with a Scottish accent, the very charismatic Chef Roux explained that the menu was designed so that ladies who like to entertain could prepare in advance so that they wouldn’t spend the bulk of their parties slaving in the kitchen. With that in mind, the 7 students drew straws so we could choose our partners and which of the 4 courses we would prepare. I opted for the fish, a brandade with lobster sauce, and I’m so glad I did. For the first time in my life, I learned the painstaking labor-intensive technique of how to make lobster sauce. The recipe is similar to a lobster bisque. The sous chef assigned to us, a master of Fish from Tokyo, Ryuta, made the laborious process seem very simple. What we made in 1.5 hours would have taken me 3 from prep to finish had I done it by myself. Several lobster carcasses were sautéed, then simmered in fish stock, mashed, drained, drained again, reduced, then finally prepared with a touch of cream and brandy to make the lobster sauce. The brandade, a potato cake made with salted cod, was also made from scratch. The final product was gorgeous and tasted delicious, but thank you Ryuta for your help, and thank you Chef Matthew Gray, Executive Chef of Chez Roux, for tasting everything and making sure it was perfected before we served it!! After preparing the courses, we all sat down for some champagne to kick off the meal at the Chef’s Table with Chef Roux. Cleverley Stone was there with Fox 26 to film a segment for the morning news as well. All the dishes (mussel soup, brandade with lobster sauce, cassoulet, and nougat with fresh berries – see pictures on my twitter @happymmm) were absolutely lovely and each paired with wonderful, carefully selected French wines to complement the meal. I couldn’t believe I ate all that gorgeous food, got to learn to cook, AND had 4 amazing wines! I had such a great time, I came back that very night with my husband in tow for ANOTHER French feast. The second time around was nothing short of scrumptious as well. I ordered one of the signature items for a starter, the cheese soufflé with creamed corn sauce. The dish was simply divine. The soufflé was perfection: light and airy, like a super light soft sponge cake with a bit of spring in it, the soufflé was not overpowering on the cheese front, just a hint of cheese combined with the smoothest, most delectable creamy corn sauce. **My eyes rolled into my head at the first bite in pure ecstatic food joy.** I ordered a breast of duck medium rare, skin was slightly crisp just like I like it, meat was properly pink but still tender. But the stuffed chicken leg dish my husband had from the very affordable $65 3 course prix-fixe menu, is one of those dishes you wish you could replicate but will never come close to achieving the same gorgeousness of the stuffed chicken leg with a bit of foamy sauce on top. My dessert, a chocolate mousse with cherry sauce was also wonderful, as was the fresh coffee press service, served with a plate of pretty-as-a-picture petit fours. I am still amazed at the affordable Michelin dining experience offered at Chez Roux. A $65, 3-course prix-fixe is a steal for cuisine of this quality, and a la carte menu items in the $30 range are also surprisingly affordable. Having tasted food from such acclaimed French Michelin Chefs like Alain Ducasse, Daniel Boulud, Jean-Geoges, and Joel Robuchon for much higher prices, I’m already planning my trip back just for food’s sake. Run, don’t walk. It’s that good.
