Back by popular demand, a lower-priced version of the must-have book from the genius behind the Fat Duck, the restaurant named best in the world by Restaurant magazine. The cookbook hailed by the Los Angeles Times as a “showstopper” and by Jeffrey Steingarten of Vogue as “the most glorious spectacle of the season…like no other book I have seen in the past twenty years” is now available in a reduced-price edition. With a reduced trim size but an identical interior, this lavishly illustrated, stunningly designed, and gorgeously photographed masterpiece takes you inside the head of maverick restaurateur Heston Blumenthal. Separated into three sections (History; Recipes; Science), the book chronicles Blumenthal’s improbable rise to fame and, for the first time, offers a mouth-watering and eye-popping selection of recipes from his award-winning restaurant. He also explains the science behind his culinary masterpieces, the technology and implements that make his alchemical dishes come to life. Designed by acclaimed artist Dave McKean—and filled with photographs by Dominic Davies—this artfully rendered celebration of one of the world’s most innovative and renowned chefs is a foodie’s dream.

In this enormous, beautiful book, we hear the full story of themeteoric rise of Heston Blumenthal and The Fat Duck, birthplace ofsnail porridge and bacon-and-egg ice cream, and encounter the passion,perfection and weird science behind the man and the restaurant. HestonBlumenthal is widely acknowledged to be a genius, and The Fat Duck hastwice been voted the Best Restaurant in the World by a peer group oftop chefs. But he is entirely self-taught, and the story of hisrestaurant has broken every rule in the book. His success has beenborne out of his pure obsession, endless invention and a childishcuriosity into how things work- whether it's how smell affectstaste, what different flavours mean to us on a biological level, or howtemperature is distributed in the centre of a soufflé. In the first section of The Big Fat Duck Cookbook,we learn the history of the restaurant, from its humble beginnings toits third Michelin star (the day Heston received the news of this hehad been wondering how exactly he would be able to pay his staff thatmonth). Next we meet 50 of his signature recipes - sardine on toastsorbet, salmon poached with liquorice, hot and iced tea, chocolate wine- which, while challenging for anyone not equipped with ice baths,dehydrators, vacuum pumps and nitrogen on tap, will inspire home cooksand chefs alike. Finally, we hear from the experts whose scientificknow-how has contributed to Heston's topsy-turvy world, on subjects asdiverse as synaesthesia, creaminess and flavour expectation. Withan introduction by Harold McGee, incredible colour photographsthroughout, illustrations by Dave McKean, multiple ribbons, real clothbinding and a gorgeous slip case, The Big Fat Duck Cookbookisnot only the nearest thing to an autobiography from the world's mostfascinating chef, but also a stunning, colourful and joyous work ofart.

Until now, home cooking has remained radically out of touch with the technological developments that characterize the rest of modern life. This is the book to prove that science can dramatically improve the way we eat. Having spent years refining his analytical and imaginative approach at the Fat Duck restaurant, Heston Blumenthal is uniquely qualified to bring the benefits of science to the domestic kitchen. Both time-saving and energy-efficient, his methods unlock the alchemical potential of flavor and taste. The first part of the book maps the new techniques in fifteen sections, including: taste and flavor; stocks and infusing; brining, curing, marinating, and macerating; and sections on proper care of meat, fish, pasta, and many other dishes. In the second part, there are 150 specially chosen recipes. Here, at last, is the secret to irrefutably perfect fish and chips, as well as a few more unconventional dishes such as salmon with licorice, and crab lasagna. Heston at Home is an ingeniously designed book for cooks who want to know how food works, and who are excited about adopting an unconventional approach that will revolutionize the experience of cooking at home.

Once upon a time there was a Chef called Heston who opened a small restaurant called the Fat Duck. At first, he served only simple French classics but gradually, as is the way of things, the Chef's curiosity got the better of him and he began thinking up more unusual dishes, such as Snail Porridge and Chocolate Wine. There was even talk of a meringue that made diners snort plumes of vapour, like a dragon. Word spread and reached the ears of the Executives who ran a television channel, and they summoned the Chef to their glass fortress. 'We command you to create six Fantastical Feasts', they said. 'These must be based on history, but you may draw on fairytales and legends.

The duck is known in China for over two millennia from the spice family of the Anatidae, and with so many different varieties of wild duck all over the world it was first domesticated in China. It took some time before the rest of the world understood they could do the same. We always think that duck is a fat poultry and not very healthy for our body but in reality the duck is particularly low in calories and the major part of the fat is contained in the form of a homogeneous layer between the skin and the flesh. So it is very easy for those concerned about their line, to remove it. However, you will lose some taste as well as nutritional value, because this fat is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids qualified as "good cholesterol." Besides this energy intake quite reasonable, duck demonstrates correct rate in vitamins, in particular from the group of vitamin B, and an equivalent amount of proteins has other meats. However, it is rich in iron, vital for the oxygenation of the body, the duck is more interesting, and superior compared to other poultry. So, if concerned with fat, just remove the skin after cooking. If you think of it, the duck is beneficial for the cardiovascular system and can be cooked without added fat, which makes duck a dietary ally. To be different, duck meat belongs to the category of red meats and is much healthier than beef. The duck has red flesh, is tender, and extremely flavorful. Remember, to maintain its tenderness the duck must not be overcooked. It is best served when is yet slightly pink to keep its flavor and delicacy. I am sure you will agree that to help our body function well we must regularly supply it with different nutrients and if you are like me - a real meat eater -it is essential to change the type of meat. So, instead of always eating the same meat such as beef, pork or chicken allow yourself some diversity and add duck meat to your plate. Don't keep the duck for special occasions, put it on your menu more often and see the difference. In this duck recipe book you have some exclusive and tasty recipes. Easy and simple to follow, don't wait and enjoy every page of it.
