For myself and 31 Audley employees, last Tuesday was no ordinary day in the office. In fact, we weren’t in the office at all, we travelled down to the picturesque village of Great Milton in Oxfordshire to enjoy a day of exquisite food, amazing wine and wonderful hospitality at the world-famous Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons. The day was organised as an incentive for the company’s top performers, and for those lucky enough to be invited along it was a day to remember. Owned by world-renowned chef, Raymond Blanc, the restaurant has been awarded two Michelin stars and the culinary creations that appeared in front of us were nothing short of beautiful. After champagne and croquet in the walled garden, we made our way into our private dining room where we feasted on a number of delectable dishes, including marinated Cornish hake fillet, tender cocoa beans and chorizo, and soft meringue with blackcurrant sorbet, vanilla cream and violet marshmallows, before enjoying a tour of the kitchens and a stroll around the grounds. The whole experience was one we will all remember for a very long time, and I can’t recommend Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons enough. If you’ve been, what did you think? We would love to hear about your experience.
