London, 2nd February 2021

Abacus Media Rights (AMR), an Amcomri Entertainment Inc, has acquired worldwide distribution rights outside the UK to the highly-anticipated new cookery series direct from the Michelin-starred kitchens of Raymond Blanc.

The series, Simply Raymond Blanc launched on ITV in the UK on 30 January.

Raymond will also reveal the workings of the extensive gardens at the world famous Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons where he is Chef Patron, explaining how much of the produce used in the kitchens is grown there, before using some of his favourite fruits and vegetables in the featured recipes. The series is directed by Matthew Wheeler and produced by Vinny Basra with executive producers David Nottage and Charlotte Davis.

Simply Raymond Blanc sees the engaging and much-admired chef share the secrets of the food he has loved all his life together with the newest recipes.  Highlighting his passion for fresh produce with a personal tour of his vast kitchen gardens, Raymond invites some of the most celebrated chefs to share their own creations as well as offering useful shortcuts, tips and ‘how to’ hints to help and encourage home cooks everywhere.

Raymond Blanc says, “I see cooking as magic, and an act of love. You put all of your love and knowledge into a beautiful dish to share with others around the table (or to happily enjoy on your own!). That is the magic of cooking.” 

Jonathan Ford, Managing Director at Abacus Media Rights, commented, “This is unmissable food TV.  Raymond’s addictive energy and continued enthusiasm for natural, in-season ingredients coupled with the creation of simple, sublime dishes are front and centre of this personal and revealing series.  We are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to be working with Rock Oyster and to offer this mouth-watering series to foodies all over the world.”
