4.0 out of 5 stars Dashi and Umami, But Hardly Heston, 8 Jan. 2010
This review is from: Dashi and Umami: The heart of Japanese cuisine (Hardcover)
This is a great cook book to better understand Dashi and Umami. There are about 24 seasonal recipies, 6 - 8 for each season, from four of the top restaurants in Japan. The recipes are pretty technical, I cook alot and cook complex stuff, I am not sure I will follow these recipies, but they do give inspiration... The background on Dashi and umami adds a lot more depth to the book. It's a bit overstated to put Heston's name on the title, he writes 3-4 paragraphs with no recipes. I am glad the publisher did as it caught my eye, and I really like the book, but it is not a Heston book so it is misleading. Overal a great technical book, beuatiful pictures, with an interesting scientific and historical look at dashi and umami.

Thanks for the review. To be fair, though, all the publisher says on the actual book is "Foreword by Heston Blumenthal". It's Amazon who have elevated him to author.
