Michel Roux’s Service

Great service matters almost more to Michel Roux than great food. He believes that waiters and sommeliers are the unsung stars of the restaurant world; their brilliance transforming an ordinary meal into an unforgettable experience.

In this new series, Michel is on a personal mission to train eight young people, none of whom have previously considered this as a career, to become front-of-house superstars. But this isn’t just about transforming young people into great waiters, good service involves discipline, care for others and self confidence.

For Michel, learning to serve others means developing essential life skills.

Receiving the best training, the eight young people learn the skills needed to run service in some of Europe’s best restaurants. Michel hopes they will discover that front-of-house service offers a brilliant career.

Ultimately, he will select two to take up life-changing scholarships with placements at leading hotels and restaurants.
