CHEF PATRON of the two-Michelin-starred Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons restaurant in Oxfordshir­e, Raymond Blanc, left, worked his way up from a cleaner in France to become one of the best-known chefs in the world. From a young age, he helped his father grow vegetables, and Raymond fell in love with food standing at the frying pan with Maman Blanc. He opened his first restaurant in Oxford in 1977 before buying Le Manoir in 1983. A regular guest on TV favourite Saturday Kitchen, Raymond has presented numerous series including his recent ITV show Simply Raymond.
