Join the much-loved French chef, Raymond Blanc, as he celebrates a beautiful collection of his most beloved recipes for the cook at home: Simply Raymond.
When the world went into lockdown in 2020, suddenly everything changed; Raymond, like the rest of the world, struggled to find a way through. At home, isolated from his family and his team of chefs, Raymond cooked and cooked.
In conversation for this exclusive event, Raymond will share why he wanted to write this book now, with ingredients that were easily available and needed only basic kitchen equipment. He’ll explore the importance of cooking from the heart and how these 100 simple dishes evoke happy memories, providing connection to those we can’t be with. He’ll also consider the profound poignancy of his mother, Maman Blanc, and how it has become a heartfelt tribute to her.
These recipes serve as a testament to the great pleasure derived from stepping into a kitchen, simply to cook simply for others - something Raymond has done all his life. These are that dishes that connect family and friends, and that took him on stove-side travels to other parts of the world.
Don’t miss the opportunity to spend an evening in the company of a world-renowned chef for an irresistible journey through his memories of a life spent in the kitchen.
