Raymond Blanc [plus] Prize Draw

Win the chance to meet Raymond Blanc and afternoon tea for two at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons ...

Ever wondered what the best apple is for making Tarte Tatin? Or what apricot variety grows best in the UK? The answers lie in Raymond Blanc’s enchanting book, The Lost Orchard. A journey through the orchard he planted in the Oxfordshire countryside at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, it is packed full of anecdotes and recipes about the ancient varieties of fruit on offer, weaving a rich story about our country's past. To celebrate publication, we are offering Waterstones Plus members the chance to visit Raymond and his orchard at the world-famous Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons hotel where you will be treated to afternoon tea for two at the Michelin star restaurant. As well as a chance to meet Raymond, your visit will include a tour of the orchard with one of the expert gardeners on site and a signed copy of The Lost Orchard.

Exclusively open to Waterstones Plus customers, enter our free prize draw before midnight on Monday 25 November to be in with a chance of winning:

  • Afternoon tea for two at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons with a tour of the garden and orchard (Available Monday to Friday subject to availability before 1 Nov 2020).
  • A meet and greet with Raymond Blanc.
  • A signed copy of The Lost Orchard.
