An awesome book
on 13 March 2010
Blumenthal does it again. What I found best about it is that it is not a simple recipe book, but an in-depth research into how to make perfect food. The stories are well written and the recipes detailed in a manner one expects from Heston Blumenthal. It is also good to know the book features basic food recipes, like roast chicken and spaghetti bolognese, and not some fancy stuff you+d find in a three Michelin star restaurant.
It needs to be noted that the recipes are by far not simple. Most of them require several days of preparation, but after trying out a fews of them - the effort is well worth it.
