The cookbook hailed by the Los Angeles Times as a "showstopper" and by Jeffrey Steingarten of Vogue as "the most glorious spectacle of the season...like no other book I have seen in the past twenty years" is now available in a reduced-price edition. With a reduced trim size but an identical interior, this lavishly illustrated, stunningly designed, and gorgeously photographed masterpiece takes you inside the head of maverick restaurateur Heston Blumenthal. Separated into three sections (History; Recipes; Science), the book chronicles Blumenthal's improbable rise to fame and, for the first time, offers a mouth-watering and eye-popping selection of recipes from his award-winning restaurant. He also explains the science behind his culinary masterpieces, the technology and implements that make his alchemical dishes come to life. Designed by acclaimed artist Dave McKean-and filled with photographs by Dominic Davies-this artfully rendered celebration of one of the world's most innovative and renowned chefs is a foodie's dream.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Alice in Wonderland of Cookbooks This is not only a cookbook, but a trip down the rabbit hole of Chef Blumenthal's brain. It give the hows, whys, and inspiration for some of his dishes. The recipes are straight forward if you have the ingredients, may take some time, but can be done. Your brain may be twisted by the results, but you will be able to make your own mad tea party, and friends and family will be amazed.
