On 14th March we shared a moment of joy as we celebrated Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons’ 36th birthday.

Shortly after these celebrations, and with great sadness, we had to close our doors due to the worldwide pandemic. We have greatly missed all our friends, guests and brilliant colleagues who everyday create the magic.

I am now so pleased to share that we will resume operations at Le Manoir on Tuesday 14th July (Bastille Day of course!)

Behind the scenes, the team continue to give our gardens so much love, growing the bounty of herbs and vegetables we will soon be serving to you.

And as always, in my recipes section you will find some perfect summer dishes to help bring some joy to your home kitchen and garden.

Wishing you all good health and peace. I thank you sincerely for all of your support.

My latest book - The Lost Orchard - is a love letter to our beautiful orchard at Le Manoir and to 100's of forgotten fruit varieties, complete with lovely little stories and of course delicious recipes. I hope you will enjoy it. Available from bookshops or from Amazon.

Summer is the most glorious season for cooking, with fruits and vegetables at their finest, and so many options of how to fill your plate.

Whether you’re a beginner cook or more advanced, this is the perfect season to experiment. Think colours, lightness, freshness…. pure deliciousness. Beautiful food for beautiful weather.

Whether it’s a gorgeous pea risotto for evenings at home, or a delectable cherry clafoutis or lemon cake to take on a picnic. The options are endless.

And for those of you with your own little veg patch, how wonderful to enjoy the beauty that is cooking from your own garden.
