Caesarstone worktops chosen for Alain Roux's new Culinary School

Caesarstone has revealed that its surfaces have been chosen for chef Alain Roux's new Culinary School at The Waterside Inn in the picturesque village of Bray-on-Thames, Berkshire. Renowned for its classic French cuisine and unparalleled hospitality, the establishment has held 3 Michelin stars for 39 years. Chef patron Alain Roux, alongside his wife, in-house designer Laura Roux, recently unveiled the Culinary School, marking a new chapter in the restaurant’s history.

Alain Roux said: “Last year, we unveiled our new state-of-the-art Culinary School and Michel Roux Library. A first for a 3 Michelin-starred restaurant in the UK, the School is an inspired conversion of my late father’s, Michel Roux OBE, riverside home, tucked behind The Waterside Inn. Created as a unique centre of culinary education and training for our own kitchen and front of house staff, it is also a fantastic facility for our guests.”

The Culinary School features a selection of Caesarstone surfaces chosen to reflect the space's aesthetic and functionality. 4033 Rugged Concrete was chosen for the demonstration and presentation area for its deep aesthetic and textured finish. The individual working stations were topped with 4001 Fresh Concrete, and finally, 4011 Cloudburst Concrete was selected for the basin and coffee station surfaces, maintaining continuity in design with its light grey base and subtle, yet distinct texture adding a layer of sophistication to these key areas.

Alain Roux added: “We reviewed various comparable surfaces and tested each one thoroughly before making our final choice. Caesarstone was the easy winner. Combined with the endless choice of designs and finishes available, it was way ahead of the competition.”
