Details: Product Description Raymond Blanc knows more about food than pretty much anyone else. His cooking has been described as 'an extraordinary process of creativity, passion, subtlety, indeed genius'. His life and career to date have been utterly dedicated to the search for culinary perfection. Raymond is entirely self-taught and over the years has been developing and refining his philosophy of food and eating. Such is his reputation that his restaurant, Le Manoir, was awarded two Michelin stars even before it opened in 1984, and it remains one of our premier destination restaurants. He has taught many of Britain's most successful chefs, including Marco Pierre White and Heston Blumenthal. Now, for the first time Raymond is going to share the fruits of all that hard work and experimentation, and reveal the secrets of his gastronomy. Woven around stories from his years at the sharp end of the food business are his thoughts about where food is going and a passionate appeal for sustainable cuisine. Essential reading for anyone with an interest in food and cooking, this is the definitive book by a culinary genius. Review Only a few great chefs are produced every century. Raymond Blanc is one of those great chefs ― Marco Pierre White A rattling good story ― BBC Good Food Magazine A delicious offering from Britain's nicest chef -- Alex Renton ― The Times Very well-seasoned... Absolutely mouth-watering -- Libby Purves, Radio 4 Raymond Blanc is a compulsive lover of what is really best ― Antonio Carluccio About the Author Entirely self-taught while growing up in the Franche Comte region of eastern France, Raymond Blanc has been a restauranteur since 1977, and has nurtured the talents of scores of the world's finest chefs in his kitchens. The face of the BBC's The Restaurant, in which he puts nine couples through their paces for a chance to become his partner in owning a restaurant, Raymond was recently awarded an OBE in recognition of his efforts to promote culinary excellence. Author of the seminal Foolproof French Cookery and owner of a number of Michelin-starred restaurants, he was also recently awarded a Lifetime Acheivement Award at The Catey Awards - the catering industry's 'Oscars'.
