Watch Michael Roux Jr.'s Behind-the-Scenes Tour of Le Gavroche in London

Here's a video from UK trade publication Caterer and Hotelkeeper that features chef Michel Roux Jr. giving a behind-the-scenes tour of the newly redesigned kitchen at London's two Michelin-starred Le Gavroche. The chef admits that it when it came to giving the kitchen a makeover, it was "time to bite the bullet and really go for it" instead of just doing minor refurbishments.

Roux Jr. discusses how he's changed the entire flow of the shiny new kitchen by completely moving the pastry and dishwashing stations and upgrading the tech in the space: The kitchen now features induction stoves and combi ovens ("equipment of the future"). He admits, however, that there was one piece of old equipment that he couldn't bear to get rid of: The restaurant's old gas salamander which finishes off cheese soufflés "perfectly." Go, watch:
