I know there are quite a few 'foodies' who read this blog and also the number of French readers is growing. It seemed only fair to give both groups a look at this smashing article by my mate Holly Brooke-Smith, it's in the September issue of the excellent Good Food magazine. It's about chef Raymond Blanc and his organic vegetable garden at Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons, his restaurant and hotel in Oxfordshire. On page 127 is a great simple recipe for tomato salad 'Maman Blanc', enjoy! If you are wondering what this has got to do with Wanstead, well I took the pictures for the article and no I didn't stay for lunch...


  1. Still going strong I see, I always wanted to go an try le manoir aux quat'saisons...

    1. Thank you for your comment. I have stayed there a couple of times on assignment in the past. Well worth a visit.
