Author information

Raymond Blanc was born in Besancon, France, in 1949. He has never had a cookery lesson but he opened his first restaurant in Oxford in 1977. In 1984, he opened Le Manoir Aux Quat'Saisons in a beautiful fifteenth-century manor house in Great Milton, near Oxford. Since then, the restaurant has gathered a host of accolades, including two Michelin stars, three Egon Ronay stars and the description of 'Best Restaurant in Great Britain' from The Good Food Guide.

Editorial reviews

The celebrated French chef, owner of Oxfordshire's Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons, presents a gloriously illustrated celebration of festive food and decorations. The main body of the book is devoted to 12 Christmas menus (each mixing the traditional with the original, with clear French influences), but there are also wonderful sections on canapes and aperitifs, afternoon tea, petits fours, gifts from the kitchen (such as pears in spiced wine) and delicious vegetable accompaniments. Blanc suggests wines with most dishes and there are many simple but inspirational decorative ideas to tranform your table or room. A seasonal book to savour. (Kirkus UK)
