Michel Roux Jr: “Pollock is such a delicate fish yet robust enough if treated well. And cockles are a family favourite so one that I am looking forward to tasting.”
Alain Roux: “We have chosen to shine the spotlight on Pollock because it is a delicious, healthy white fish that has become a popular and sustainable alternative to cod and haddock and is just as versatile. I am looking forward to being enticed with appealing dishes that are at once full of flavour but delicately balanced. So, we are seeking a tricky balancing act, which is very exciting.”
