A dry soulless book that doesn't really deliver the goods. Some nice ideas but didn't really learn anything worth using

A bit dull in places this book is worth a pop but don't expect laugh out loud moments. Pity as the writer comes across as a nice chap

A thoroughly engaging and fascinating book that will get you gripped from the off. I can't say too much but this develops into a fine read

5.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this, 15 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite surprised by the mixed reception this has received. Given that this is for a niche audience I thought it would favourably looked upon, and having read it I can say it is a hugely enjoyable read. Not overly detailed to the point of fanatical, this strikes a nice balance for the fanboy wants to learn more. The only pointless bits were the extracts of Reg's diaries which are dull to say the least! Worth a read though

Can't really review this without giving too much away, but this is one of those "unique" books that come along from time to time and present a new delivery to enjoy. Easy reading, thoughtful and a real page turner


The Fat Duck Cookbook
The Fat Duck Cookbook

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating insight into culinary perfection, 24 Feb. 2013

This review is from: The Fat Duck Cookbook (Hardcover)
I knew when I bought this book that I would not be using it as a source of recipes, and any prospective purchasers should be aware of that at the outset. However the book is a deeply fascinating document of how Heston has created stunning recipes that us mere mortals can only dream of tasting. The history section is really interesting and shows just how dedicated Mr Blumenthal has been in his pursuit of the extraordinary. The recipes are beautifully explained and photographed and there is a real education to be had here. I've tried making his triple cooked chips and have certainly taken some of the information and used it. This is a marvellous book and its a worthy addition to my bookshelf.. Hope you enjoy too.

My nan was in service and this book tallies up with her tales. A great read, should be compulsory for today's celebrity obsessed youngsters as a timely reminder of just how different things were for us a hundred years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good, 24 Feb. 2013

Haven't tested it yet but due to fly in June.. Good book which deals with fear rather than flying itself. There was one paragraph in the book which really did it for me and I think I am cured now
