Top chefs are mourning the passing of Jean Le Roux, London’s last Onion Johnny. Le Roux travelled from Roscoff, in Brittany, for more than 50 years to sell highly-prized strings of onion rosé and shallots to London’s best restaurants. Customers included the Roux brothers and restaurants such as Le Gavroche and The Waterside Inn. The Daily Telegraph 13/08/04 page 8
