An irresistible new book inspired by his mother's cooking. . . Simple but delicious dishes
Delicious new cookbook
Beautifully, movingly written . . . It's beautiful, simple and delicious food . . . The book is outstanding - and I now love aubergines!
Inspired by his mother's cooking, the chef at Le Manoir spent lockdown writing this collection of uncomplicated family meals. There are, of course, plenty of French dishes . . . as well as British classics and recipes inspired by his travels.
Simply Raymond [is] a collection of his favourite home-cooked recipes . . . a heartfelt culinary tribute to his beloved late mother . . . A well-loved chef and writer, Raymond tells us why last year transformed his life forever. Heart-warming anecdotes about the food of his childhood come alongside some recipes from his newest book.
Full of wonderful recipes ... An absolute joy.
Filled with unfussy, simple and seasonal recipes, the book is tinged with his experience of pandemic life.
His mother, always a prominent figure in the Raymond Blanc story, is celebrated in the book, which is full of far less complicated recipes than might be expected from the Michelin-starred chef.
Raymond Blanc is a big personality on our TV screens and that comes across in his writing and recipes too ... Thanks to his new book, I've elevated my plebby taste in popcorn ...
A simple delight.
Straightforward and accessible, the recipes in Simply Raymond provide much inspiration... There is a comforting familiarity about much of this collection... but the book is also full of twists and surprises. [It has] a noticeably French accent, but Blanc's love of global cuisine comes through...
[Raymond Blanc] writes like he speaks, with a French accent, and unsmotherable enthusiasm, so that sometimes the text erupts into excited exclamations - bubble bubble!, gentle gentle! They made me laugh out loud while I was cooking. The recipes are brilliant too: simple, but with cheffy touches that make all the difference.
