Join us for lunch at Belmond Le Manoir
We’ve teamed up with Raymond Blanc to plan a special lunch at his beautiful hotel and restaurant, Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’saisons. Originally a crumbling Oxfordshire manor house, chef-patron Raymond – the only chef to be awarded both an OBE from the Queen and the equivalent of a knighthood from France – transformed it into one of the UK’S top restaurants and a luxury hotel complete with a cookery school, orchard and kitchen gardens.
On arrival, we’ll start with a Laurentperrier champagne reception hosted by Raymond, where he will answer any culinary questions, followed by his delicious four-course lunch menu (see sample menu, right). Each dish will be accompanied with carefully selected wines. At the end of the afternoon, you’ll receive a copy of Raymond’s book, A Taste of My Life, and a goodie bag worth £25 packed with foodie treats to take home (see page 13).

THE PRICE £195 for magazine subscribers only. Price includes champagne reception, a four-course lunch with accompanying wines, coffee and petits fours, and a copy of A Taste of My Life by Raymond Blanc.
