Description

Over the past seven years, Raymond Blanc has planted an orchard of 2,500 trees in the grounds of his hotel-restaurant in Oxfordshire. Yielding about 60 tonnes of fruit for his kitchen each year, it is full of ancient and forgotten varieties of British apples and pears, along with walnut trees, quince, medlars, apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, damsons and cherries. A further 600 heritage fruit trees have been added from Raymond’s home in the Franche-ComtĂ© region of France. ‘The Lost Orchard’ is a love letter to each of these varieties, complete with beautiful black and white drawings, fascinating information and anecdotes about each fruit, along with recipes and stories.
