Welcome to my brand new website!

Just like my food, my website revolves around the four seasons.

Currently it’s summer, when the flavours are abundant and strong. For me, it’s the season of turbot with fennel, guinea fowl with a lime jus, delicious sharp sorbets and sweet, juicy fruits. Delicious!

We had a wonderful time at Jardin Blanc and Royal Ascot but we still have so many other exciting projects lined up for the summer months.  For example, I’ll be at The Big Feastival on Sunday 26 August. I’ll be doing a Table Session, a book signing and cooking some delicious summer recipes for you so come along and say hello!

I have a culinary challenge for you!
Here is my recipe for Tomato Essence – a delicious dish that celebrates summer. It is a restaurant-level recipe which takes skill and determination – but the sense of accomplishment will be worth it.

Post your version on 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 summer. I’ve created a recipe showcasing each ingredient that I hope you will enjoy cooking for your loved ones at home.
