Chris Lelliot, Head Chef at Richmond Wood Norton shares his recipe of this tender and traditional baked French dessert inspired by his travels around Europe with the Roux Brothers.
Chris Lelliot has been cooking professionally since he left school, learning his trade originally in a local hotel in St Albans before then moving to the Michelin starred restaurant, Gravetye Manor near Brighton. His next move was to London where he was lucky enough to work with Gary Rhodes at The Greenhouse on Park Lane before working with the Roux Brothers for 14 years. The Cherry Clafoutis recipe is inspired by his travels around Europe with Michel and Albert Roux for one of many recipe books.
