Raymond Blanc
The Lost Orchard

Chef-patron of the legendary Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Raymond Blanc is acknowledged as one of the finest chefs in the world. A lifetime champion of seasonal eating, Blanc’s childhood dream of flourishing gardens has taken shape at Le Manoir – including an orchard of 2,500 trees, bursting with ancient and forgotten varieties of fruit. Blanc will be in conversation with Tim Hayward, food writer, broadcaster and proprietor of Cambridge’s legendary Fitzbillies. They’ll be discussing Blanc’s life and work, and his new book The Lost Orchard, a beautifully illustrated love letter to the trees surrounding his restaurant (and yes, of course there are recipes).
