Legendary French chef Michel Roux passed away last night (Wednesday, March 12) surrounded by his family at home in Bray, Berkshire. He had been in the hospitality business since the mid-60s and still regularly appears on cookery programs giving fellow chefs and those at home watching ideas of what delicous culinary dishes they can prepare. So how did the 79-year-old chef die?
Chef Michel Roux, who opened Britain's first three Michelin-star restaurant, has died at the age of 78. He had been diagnosed with the lung disease idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, his family said in a statement Thursday.
