Episode 5 of 5

Duration: 1 hour

Raymond Blanc is Britain's most famous French chef, yet he has never cooked professionally in France. Forty years after leaving, Raymond is going back to show us the country he loves so much and the French recipes that have inspired him. In each episode he takes over a restaurant for one night only and cooks a feast inspired by that region's food.

In this episode, Raymond heads to sun-soaked Provence, where he stages perhaps the most ambitious feast of the series. The local food and cuisine were a revelation to Raymond as a young boy, and remain a huge influence on his cooking today.
