Dear Friends

The British Summer has arrived!….let’s hope it is here for a while!!

As always, you can find recipe inspiration and cooking tips in my recipes section. There you’ll find lovely light dishes for summer.

I also hope you’ve enjoyed my new TV series – ‘Simply Raymond Blanc’. All ten episodes have now aired on ITV, however, if you missed any of them, or simply want to revisit particular episodes, you can do so on the ITV Hub. This series is full to the brim with simple, delicious, fuss-free dishes that everyone can make at home.

My new cookbook ‘Simply Raymond’ is now available I couldn’t be prouder. This book was written mostly during lockdown as I cooked in my home kitchen, reconnecting with simple dishes I love so much.

Wishing you all good health and peace. Here’s to brighter days ahead.

Simply Raymond is a collection of my favourite home-cooked recipes. These are dishes that mean the most to me - those that connect me with family and friends and bring back the most wonderful memories. This is cooking from my heart and my home, with dishes to add to your weekly repertoire, and others for special occasions.

The British Summer has arrived!….let’s hope it is here for a while!!


The gardens at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons have burst into life, bringing so many new tastes and textures.

We still have a few of the late spring vegetables as we move into the full season of summer and all it has to bring us, gardeners and chefs.


I urge you to get into your gardens and kitchens and cook some truly delicious recipes.

Whether it is my tomato tart, a simple garden vegetable soup or my classic clafoutis made with the juiciest black cherries.


Bon appétit.
