Raymond Blanc visits Great Milton CE Primary School
21 June 2011
to discuss French History & French Cooking
On 16 June, Raymond Blanc visited Great Milton Primary School, the school local to Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons. He went to the school to talk to them about French History which they are studying at the moment.
Raymond talked to the children about the French Revolution for about an hour. The children then asked Raymond questions in both English and French, and served him Brioche they had cooked using his recipe from Kitchen Secrets.
Finally, the children asked Raymond why he had dressed as Napoleon for the cover of the recent Observer Food Monthly... Raymond replied that perhaps it was to poke a bit of fun at another little Frenchman, possibly one of the greatest who ever lived... also known as Le Générale! After this, the children sang the French national anthem, La Marseillaise, to Raymond's delight!
Raymond Blanc's new book, Kitchen Secrets, featuring recipes from Kitchen Secrets Series 1 & 2 and many more, was published by Bloomsbury on 14 February and is available to buy online from Amazon, from Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, Brasserie Blanc, Maison Blanc, and from online and retail bookstores.
