Legendary chef Raymond Blanc welcomes the cameras into his kitchen to share his cooking secrets. Filmed in the lively surroundings of his Oxfordshire restaurant kitchen, this programme features a range of achievable and inspirational recipes for cooks of all abilities.

Raymond uses two staple ingredients with infinite uses - eggs and cheese. He kicks off with a classic omelette made perfectly thanks to a secret technique.

The perfect sabayon is key to any cooks repertoire and this version makes a frozen parfait before Raymond returns home for a Maman Blanc classic, Floating Islands, clouds of meringue sitting atop a vanilla cream and covered with a chewy caramel sauce.

Raymond's next recipe requires the best of cheeses and he is brought a selection by award winning cheesemonger Patricia Michelson. A fine Comte from his home region in eastern France goes to making a family style souffle guaranteed to rise to the occasion.

For his finale a greengage casoulette is made from praline and topped with meringue and sabayon. Along the way, Raymond visits his old friend Eric Charriaux at his London fromagerie where they each choose their perfect cheese boards to enjoy at the end of a meal.
