RAYMOND BLANC is Britain’s most famous French chef, yet he has never cooked professionally in France. In The Very Hungry Frenchman, Raymond finally gets the opportunity to show us the country he loves so much and the French recipes that inspired him. In each episode Raymond will explore the distinctive produce and cuisine of a different region of France, before cooking a menu of traditional dishes for one night only. He will source the freshest ingredients from the people that know them best, show us how to make the dishes, and then together with his young British protégés, put them on the table in a local restaurant.

Will the French be as proud of him as we are?

Raymond Blanc is one of those rare people who's passion and enthusiasm come through so naturally when he is on TV.

This series is in many ways a celebration of this passion.

We finally get to meet Mammon Blanc who is mentioned so often in Raymond Blanc's books.

We also meet interesting people, who are passionate about the food they produce, we see the beautiful French countryside and then of course there are the recipes.

However this is NOT just another cookery programme with step by step recipes, it is a celebration of regional food, and regional food producers.

This is a series that just makes me happy, it inspires me to get cooking and to connect with local and regional food producers and to enjoy life.

It is a real treasure of a DVD.

Very highly recommended indeed.

Peppered with lots of "ooh la las" this is simply delightful. The recipes, although sometimes a little complicated are so worth the effort. The boeuf bourgignon is amazing. There are no extras on this two disc set but that aside it is a set you will play again and again. Looking forward to a second series (please!!!)

We watched all episodes of this programme at least twice. The DVD set contains the full 5 programmes, to be enjoyed at leisure. Beautiful scenery from some lesser known areas of France, presented by someone passionate about food, France and life itself. I spent a year in Besancon so particularly enjoyed the first episode. I have heard Raymond say there will be a second series so I can't wait: there are so many regions of France to explore!

Fantastic, really enjoyable series. Far more to this series than recipes, it's about the people, culture & history of the regions of France.

My quesion is... where is the blu-ray version? Cost cutting BBC again I suspect. Hopefully a blu-ray version will be released at a later date.

Second series please Raymond!

Loved it, the program concept was excellent of visiting different regions across France and providing a insight into the cuisine of the region, with a innovative twist. Raymond stayed true to the regional faire but what he brought to it was a different dynamic and a sense of his amazing culinary skills. It was entertaining with some quite humourous moments. Would recommend this series as a real highlight, if you love anything French and food!

I totally agree with sue! This was a fantastic series from beginning to end and a 'must watch' in our house. Beautiful scenery and Raymond's passion for each regions produce, make this one of the best culinary shows produced by the BBC.
Constantly watched again on iplayer, so I am made up that it is now available on DVD.
