Review
PRAISE FOR THE BIG FAT DUCK COOKBOOK: It's not just a cookbook. It's not just an art book. It's not just a record of the most innovative and exhilarating self-taught chef to have ever come from the UK. The Big Fat Duck Cookbook transcends all others because Heston Blumenthal transcends all others ... The cookbook will never be the same again' Independent on Sunday 'Akin to edible performance art' Observer Food Books of the Year 'If sex began after the Chatterley ban, the British didn't do proper tuck before The Fat Duck ... The Fat Duck has been declared the world's finest and has changed how we think about food ... chefs should leave the mad science to Heston' Daily Telegraph --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


Product Description
There is no meal on this planet or any other that Heston Blumenthal can't prepare. In spring 2009, on his British television series Heston's Feasts, he re-created the impossible "Drink Me" potion from Alice in Wonderland and reinvented Henry VIII 's mythical Cockentrice. In Heston's Fantastical Feasts, the chef extraordinaire prepares six incredible new feasts inspired by history, literature, and legend, and takes us along for the ride.

In this imaginatively illustrated book, each chapter charts the realization of a feast, with its challenges and ideas, culminating with the final recipes. The book consists of a Willy Wonka Feast, a Fairy Tale Feast, an Edwardian Feast, a Gothic Feast, a '70s Feast, and—of course—a Feast of the Future. Delving deep into the world of each dish, Blumenthal creates poison apples, transforms pumpkins into carriages, and builds Edwardian gingerbread houses with sugar windows. Scouring Italy for rare mushrooms and Switzerland for wild boar, he records the journeys and inspiration behind each meal, laying it all out in grandly illustrated detail. Witness his delectable riffs on Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham and Roald Dahl's Lickable Wallpaper, and even try the recipe if you dare.

Featuring ornate illustrations by artist Tom Lane and an exuberant interior design, Heston's Fantastical Feasts is a mind-boggling and irrepressible new accomplishment from one of the most electric chefs in the world.
