Bonjour!

Welcome to my brand new website!

Just like my food, my website is led by the four seasons.

The summer sun has been unusually kind to us this year but now the children are heading back to school and we will soon start to see the first signs of autumn. This is the season for smoked haddock, pigeon, pheasant and rabbit – and, of course, the delicious apples and pears that are calling to me from the orchard here at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons. And just like autumn leaves, the flavours of this season are rich and layered. I have hand-picked some delicious autumn recipes for you to make at home for your loved ones. Don’t forget to send me your photos of them on my social media. Bon appétit!

I have a culinary challenge for you!

Here is the recipe for one of my classics – a dessert called Frozen Autumn Still Life. It is a restaurant-level recipe which takes skill and determination – but the sense of accomplishment will be worth it.

Post your version on my social media and tag me to have it #RAYted!

If you’re looking for something a little simpler but just as special, I have also hand-picked my five seasonal star ingredients for this autumn. I’ve created a recipe showcasing each ingredient that I hope you will enjoy cooking for your loved ones at home.

Autumn Still Life dessert by Raymond Blanc

An autumn still life of mushrooms in a forest. The tops of the ceps are chestnut parfait, the feet are hazelnut meringue, and they sit on a forest floor of chocolate leaves.
