The Grumpy Cook

Raymond Blanc gets to meet Sandy and The Grumpy Cook!


Even our very own Grumpy Cook Barry gets to take the odd day off and like any dedicated foodie, he uses the time to relax and unwind whilst being wined and dined along with his partner in crime, our very own Sandy.

A recent jaunt to Milton Keynes resulted in a table for two at Brasserie Blanc and chance encounter with the big man himself. Obviously Barry wasn’t about to pass up the opportunity of a chinwag with Raymond Blanc over dinner and the pair soon discovered they had both started their culinary journey’s as self-taught cooks, driven by a passion for great food.

After chatting over recipes, there was just enough time to pose for a quick photo and for Raymond to sign the latest addition to Barry’s huge library of recipe books.
