Raymond Blanc

Includes a meet-and-greet with Raymond Blanc OBE

As a valued Gold member, you and a guest are being given the exclusive opportunity to apply for two complimentary tickets to join the AA on Wednesday 11 March – for a VIP day behind the scenes at Raymond Blanc’s Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons, near Oxford.

This incredible money-can’t-buy experience includes a tour of the house and gardens, a cookery demonstration, and a superb four-course lunch.

Your day begins at 9.30am, with tea and coffee on arrival, an introduction, and a very special meet-and-greet with Raymond Blanc.

You’ll spend the morning touring this delightful and secluded country house hotel – learning about its history, interior design and inspiration, and the fabulously talented restaurant team.

At 12.30pm, you'll be treated to a champagne reception – before being escorted to a private dining room for an exquisite four-course lunch, with accompanying matched wines. Senior members of the food and beverage team will introduce the dishes and wines for each course.

Later in the afternoon, you’ll enjoy a cookery demonstration and a tour of the gardens, before it’s time to leave with your goody bag at 5.30pm.
