Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just anticipating the delivery was great! But to have it in my hands was amazing the book is an in depth look not only to the developement of Heston Blumenthals philosphy of cooking, but also his quest for knowledge and the ups and downs that he encountered on the way. The technical science is written so that you do not need a science degree! The presentation of the book itself is well done, the colour plates and the descriptions of the recipes are well explained. this is a book that any chef will cherish and any amateur will appreciate.
