The Big Fat Duck Cook Book



Heston Blumenthal, what goes on in that head of yours...is this food, art or science? I look at this fellas work with fascination and admiration. With our shelves heaving with celebrity chef cookbooks, I was wondering when someone was going to release something out of the ordinary and this my friends is it.

Part autobiography, philosophy and part cookbook, this breaks the rules on every count including the £100 price tag. This is not your mass-market stack them high and flog them cheap TV series accompaniment.

Whilst I don't have nitrogen on tap in my kitchen or the time (or inclination) in the week to create sardine on toast sorbet I would still love to own this, if just for the design alone (Designed by Praline).
