Don't expect this to be your traditional cookbook.
on 5 October 2013
I bought this product specifically for the chapter on burgers as I had seen the original TV series and was keen to see what other suggestions he would have. This book accompanies the show and describes the filming and his experiences as he goes on his search for perfection. The stories are interesting and informative, however I was a little disappointed that there wasn't much more of a collection of knowledge and comparison of the burgers he tasted. At the end of the chapter there is his perfect burger recipe, but no variations. Ok, I have only read that one section and maybe burgers aren't the most interesting subject in this book, but I felt it was lacking a little in the detail. I like the science element to his cooking and I didn't see too much of it this time around. What is also to note, although it doesn't bother me too much, is that it is a rather large paper back book and looks very drab with its black, white and grey colouring and doesn't really inspire you to pick up and read it. I would recommend this book to people who are more interested in Heston's journey rather than the food and science inside it.
