The two world famous brands of excellence have joined partnership to offer racegoers an experience like no other. The dynamic father and son duo will create a signature menu in the Panoramic Restaurant and are sure to charm guests with their delectable brand of classic French Cuisine which will be given a modern touch.
Guests of ‘The Waterside Inn at the Panoramic’ will be treated to a number of dishes showcasing their specialities in a stunning menu created especially for the Royal Meeting. Masterpieces include cold tomato gazpacho garnished with basil flavoured mozzarella cannelloni, sauté of lamb and roasted best end served with a saffron flavoured celeriac and seasonal vegetables, pistachio flavoured crème-brulée with vanilla ice cream and a trio of British and French cheeses with a fig and walnut bread.
Michel Roux OBE, says “I have been at the helm of the Waterside Inn since 1972 and a regular visitor of Ascot Racecourse during Royal Ascot week ever since. I am therefore very happy that the Waterside Inn will be at the Panoramic Restaurant during Royal Ascot week 2010 and proud to have my son Alain with me, who is in charge of the kitchen at the Waterside Inn, along with our General Manager Diego Masciaga. It is a natural joint venture as we share the same patrons during Royal Ascot week so it is a perfect blend and of course the racecourse is only a stone`s throw from Bray. I am excited to work with Ascot Hospitality who are renowned for their excellence.”
Managed by The Waterside Inn General Manager Diego Masciaga, the Panoramic Restaurant will be run using teams from both the restaurant and racecourse giving diners at the racecourse an authentic Waterside Inn warm and friendly experience.
Michel Roux has earned more than 30 culinary awards and distinctions as well as seven medals in his distinguished career and is the author of ten culinary books. Alain became the Chef Patron of The Waterside Inn in 2001 and is now solely in charge of the restaurant. Under Michel's leadership, the Waterside has won numerous plaudits, including the holy grail of three Michelin stars, awarded in 1985, and it has held that accolade longer than any other restaurant in Britain. The Waterside Inn is a beautiful Tudor-style building situated in the 16th century village of Bray, Berkshire, on the banks of the River Thames and houses the eponymous award-winning restaurant as well as guest accommodation.
