I hope you had a wonderful holiday season and are feeling rested, refreshed and ready to tackle 2019.

As we begin the year, my team and I have been busy at work on our exciting upcoming series of events. We are certainly all looking forward to the longer days of spring and Jardin Blanc at the magnificent RHS Chelsea Flower Show. Later, you will find us in my Panoramic Restaurant at the regal Royal Ascot races.

Meanwhile, we are looking forward to welcoming our many restaurant and hotel guests to Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons throughout the year. Our Brasserie Blanc restaurants were buzzing over the holidays, and we have exciting new menus to come.

There are also plenty of recipes for you to try this season! The flavours of this season are warm and decadent, like a glass of fine Cognac by the fireplace.

Here’s to a happy, healthy and certainly delicious 2019.

Bon appétit.

Whether it’s a delicious cep ravioli with sage butter for those cold January evenings, or a beautiful fish pie or bread and butter pudding. This is the season for comforting winter warmers as we hibernate ahead of the marvellous spring to come. In my recipe section you’ll find everything you need to truly impress your loved ones this year.
