Raymond Blanc's Kitchen Secrets ep.4 - Pudding

Celebrated chef Raymond Blanc invites the cameras into his kitchen to share his treasured cooking secrets. Filmed in the lively surroundings of his working Oxfordshire kitchen, this programme features a range of inspirational and achievable recipes for cooks of all abilities.


This episode is a treat for the taste buds as Raymond celebrates his passion for puddings, sweet and savoury. To kick off there is a French childhood favourite, riz au lait, a velvety vanilla rice pudding with a crunchy caramel topping and a tangy fruit compote. Next is another French classic, tarte tatin. Glossy caramelised apples embedded in golden puff pastry create a sumptuous dessert and comforting finale to any meal.

Moving on to savoury, Raymond prepares a heart-warming dish perfect for a chilly night, a suet pudding filled with succulent steak, juicy kidneys and creamy oysters all drenched in a rich red wine gravy. To round off, Raymond gives a French twist to a British institution - fruit crumble. Juicy red fruits laced with caramel are topped with a lid of golden crumble and a refreshing raspberry sorbet.

Raymond visits cookery writer and chef Sophie Grigson who teaches him how to make a traditional English Sussex pond pudding and top sommelier Jonathan Ray shows him how to match the perfect wine with the perfect pudding.
