It's not every day you get invited to a masterclass with everyone's favourite French chef Raymond Blanc, so when the invite from Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, his two-Michelin-starred restaurant in rural Oxfordshire, landed in our office we leapt at the chance. Self-taught chef Raymond firmly believes that anyone can learn to cook well, and he is passionate about sharing his knowledge (he insists on 'sharing' rather than 'educating' – a word he thinks has negative connotations) with the nation.
His new television series – Raymond Blanc: How To Cook Well – launches this week. We had a sneak preview and Monsieur Blanc was kind enough to share one of the delicious recipes from the series with us – an oriental twist on slow-cooked beef that's made fresh and summery with a vibrant papaya and pomegranate salad. Magnifique!
Raymond Blanc: How To Cook Well is on BBC2 from Tuesday 9 July at 8pm
