    Wonderful Book, but you're probably not going to use it as a cookbook

    This is Heston Blumenthal's masterpiece, and for that matter Dave McKean's illustrative masterpiece as well. The prose is outstanding as Blumenthal takes you through his "history" as he calls it from his fascination with restaurants to starting his own. The next section is recipes. Be aware that these are recipes from his restaurant that most people would not be able to make at home. The ingredients and hardware used are often complicated and expensive, such as his use of the sous vide, a mechanism that heats food without ever being above the temperature one wants the food to be at, so that it never burns. The final and perhaps most interesting section is the science behind it. Blumenthal has absolutely revolutionized the science of cooking with his exactitude and experimentation. On top of the written content, the book is magnificently beautiful. Dave McKean has done an incredible job visualizing Blumenthal's thoughts in his own quirky way.

    A Big Fat Book of Beauty!

    Gorgeous photography..the book is great just to look at even if you don't cook! Full of funny illustrations and foods you'd never eat, but great fun to thumb through.
