About Le Manoir

Raymond BlancWe’ve planned a wonderful lunch at Raymond Blanc’s world-famous restaurant, Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons – and you’re invited.

Belmond Le Manoir, a 15th-century manor house in the Oxfordshire village of Great Milton, is one of the few restaurants in the world to retain two Michelin stars for more than 30 years. Raymond’s menus evolve with the seasons, and his team sources the finest ingredients, many from their two-acre kitchen garden, which produces 90 types of vegetables and more than 70 varieties of herbs.

For our special BBC Good Food event, you will start the day with a cookery demo in the Raymond Blanc Cookery School and a flower-arranging demo with award- winning florist Fabulous Flowers. Then you’ll be welcomed with a champagne reception, followed by a three-course lunch with wine, co ee and petits fours, plus you will receive a signed copy of Raymond’s new book, Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons: The Story of a Modern Classic, to take home with you.

Wild mushroom risotto with truffle cream
Roast fillet of Angus beef with chargrilled shallots & Bordelaise sauce
