Raymond Blanc: My life in five dishes

The Food Chain

The celebrated French chef Raymond Blanc tells Emily Thomas about his life through five dishes.From a childhood roaming magical forests in Eastern France, to the rather less enticing restaurant scene of 1970s England, Raymond describes how with little grasp of the language and no formal training, he quickly became one of the UK’s best known chefs. His restaurant, Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, has been thriving for almost 40 years and during that time he has added a string of cookbooks, TV shows and brasseries to his name. Raymond explains how he balances being a gastronome and perfectionist with running a large business.But we also hear another side to the exuberant chef. The past year has been perhaps one the most difficult of Raymond’s life - closing his restaurants, the isolation of lockdown, the death of his mother and being hospitalised with coronavirus for a month. He tells us why he thinks it will make him a better man.

And he’s released not one but two books – The Lost Orchard in which he lovingly reintroduces us to the apples and pears of our British heritage, and Simply Raymond an homage to his mother and her simple but delicious rustic cooking. As Gilly zooms into le Manoir, she finds him in reflective mood, celebrating the legacy of Maman and Papa Blanc, the role of Le Manoir in British culinary history and planting trees with Prince Charles.
