Raymond Blanc – Simply Raymond: Recipes from Home – INCLUDING RECIPES FROM THE ITV SERIES

A new book from the renown TV chef and proprietor of Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Rayond Blanc takes us on a series of new cooking adventures.

Simply Raymond developed over the lock-down of last year presents us with an array of wonderful dishes.

As the book says: There is also a profound poignancy to this book. Shortly before Raymond finished writing it, his mother sadly passed away. This book is a heartfelt tribute to her, created with passion and thoughtfulness. It is also a testament to the great pleasure derived from stepping into a kitchen, simply to cook simply for others. Something he has done all of his life.
