I have seen Heston Blumenthal's 'In Search of Perfection' television series and his feasts and have always been fascinated! This book is truly an adventure! Each recipe requires a significant amount of time (up to 10 hours), but the results are WELL WORTH IT!!!!! What is amazing is that all of the recipes are designed for the home cook, and while they do take dedication, they are all do-able!!
So far, I have attempted the "Perfect Chicken" and the results were incredible! The most amazing flavor, texture, juiciness, everything!! Just note that the first time making any of the recipes will take longer than suspected-- yet the subsequent times will definitely run more smoothly!!
Give these recipes a chance and the experience gained is amazing! Plus, the stories are great as well!!
