In this beautiful, smaller format edition of the award-winning Big Fat Duck Cookbook,we hear the full story of the meteoric rise of Heston Blumenthal andThe Fat Duck, birthplace of snail porridge and bacon-and-egg ice cream,and encounter the passion, perfection and weird science behind the manand the restaurant. Heston Blumenthal is widely acknowledgedto be a genius, and The Fat Duck has twice been voted the BestRestaurant in the World by a peer group of top chefs. But he isentirely self-taught, and the story of his restaurant has broken everyrule in the book. His success has been borne out of his pure obsession,endless invention and a childish curiosity into how things work- whether it's how smell affects taste, what different flavours mean tous on a biological level, or how temperature is distributed in thecentre of a soufflé. In the first section of The 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. With an introduction by Harold McGee, incredible colour photographs throughout and illustrations by Dave McKean,The Fat Duck Cookbookis not only the nearest thing to an autobiography from the world's mostfascinating chef, but also a stunning, colourful and joyous work ofart.

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.

Winner of Three James Beard Awards Cookbook of the Year Cooking from a Professional Point of View and Photography British gastronomy has a grand old tradition that has been lost over time. Now our most inventive chef is out to reclaim it. Heston Blumenthal, whose name is synonymous with cutting-edge cuisine, still finds his greatest source of inspiration in the unique and delicious food that our sceptered isle once produced. This has been the secret to his success at world-famous restaurants The Fat Duck and Dinner, where a contrast between old and new, modern and historic, is key. Historic Heston charts a quest for identity through the best of British cooking that stretches from medieval to late-Victorian recipes. Start with twenty-eight historic dishes, take them apart, put them together again and what have you got? A sublime twenty-first-century take on delicacies including meat fruit (1500), quaking pudding (1660) and mock turtle soup (1892). Heston examines the history behind each one's invention and the science that makes it work. He puts these dishes in their social context and follows obscure culinary trails, ferreting out such curious sources as The Queen-like Closet from 1672 (which offers an excellent method for drying goose). What it adds up to is an idiosyncratic culinary history of Britain. This glorious book also gives a unique insight into the way that Heston works, with signature dishes from both The Fat Duck and the double Michelin-starred Dinner, which is ranked 7th in the World's 50 Best Restaurants. With a beautiful cover illustrated by the genius that is Dave McKean, his illustrations throughout, and some of the most superb food photography you'll ever see, Historic Heston is a book to treasure.

In the West, we have identified only four basic tastes—sour, sweet, salty, and bitter—that, through skillful combination and technique, create delicious foods. Yet in many parts of East Asia over the past century, an additional flavor has entered the culinary lexicon: umami, a fifth taste impression that is savory, complex, and wholly distinct. Combining culinary history with recent research into the chemistry, preparation, nutrition, and culture of food, Mouritsen and Styrbæk encapsulate what we know to date about the concept of umami, from ancient times to today. Umami can be found in soup stocks, meat dishes, air-dried ham, shellfish, aged cheeses, mushrooms, and ripe tomatoes, and it can enhance other taste substances to produce a transformative gustatory experience. Researchers have also discovered which substances in foodstuffs bring out umami, a breakthrough that allows any casual cook to prepare delicious and more nutritious meals with less fat, salt, and sugar. The implications of harnessing umami are both sensuous and social, enabling us to become more intimate with the subtleties of human taste while making better food choices for ourselves and our families. This volume, the product of an ongoing collaboration between a chef and a scientist, won the Danish national Mad+Medier-Prisen (Food and Media Award) in the category of academic food communication.

How can we design better experiences? Experience Design brings together leading international scholars to provide a cross-section of critical thinking and professional practice within this emerging field. Contributors writing from theoretical, empirical and applied design perspectives address the meaning of 'experience'; draw on case studies to explore ways in which specific 'experiences' can be designed; examine which methodologies and practices are employed in this process; and consider how experience design interrelates with other academic and professional disciplines. Chapters are grouped into thematic sections addressing positions, objectives and environments, and interactions and performances, with individual case studies addressing a wide range of experiences, including urban spaces, the hospital patient, museum visitors, mobile phone users, and music festival and restaurant goers.

The first and greatest book of regional American cuisine, now revised for today’s home cook. Imagine a person with the culinary acumen of Julia Child, the inquisitiveness of Margaret Mead, and the daring of Amelia Earhart. This is Clementine Paddleford, America’s first food journalist. In the 1930s, Paddleford set out to do something no one had done before: chronicle regional American food. Writing for the New York Herald Tribune, Gourmet, and This Week, she crisscrossed the nation, piloting a propeller plane, to interview real home cooks and discover their local specialties. The Great American Cookbook is the culmination of Paddleford’s career. A best seller when first published in 1960 as How America Eats, this coveted classic has been out of print for thirty years. Here are more than 500 of Paddleford’s best recipes, all adapted for contemporary kitchens. From New England there is Real Clam Chowder; from the South, Fresh Peach Ice Cream; from the Southwest, Albondigas Soup; from California, Arroz con Pollo. Behind all the recipes are extraordinary stories, which make this not just a cookbook but also a portrait of America.

Out of all the human senses, touch is the one that is most often unappreciated, and undervalued. Yet, the surface of the human body, the skin, is actually one huge sheet of tactile receptors. It provides us with the means to connect with our surroundings. Despite the important role that vision plays in our everyday lives, it is the skin that constitutes both the oldest, and by far the largest of our sense organs. The skin protects our body from the external world and, at the same time, informs us about what occurs on its surface. In Touch With The Future explores the science of touch, bringing together the latest findings from cognitive neuroscience about the processing of tactile information in humans. The book provides a comprehensive overview of scientific knowledge regarding themes such as tactile memory, tactile awareness (consciousness), tactile attention, the role of touch in interpersonal and sexual interactions, and the neurological substrates of touch. It highlights the many ways in which our growing understanding of the world of touch can, and in some cases already are, being applied in the real world in everything from the development of virtual reality (VR) environments, tablet PCs, mobile phones, and even teledildonics - the ultimate frontier in terms of adult entertainment. In addition, the book shows how the cognitive neuroscience approach to the study of touch can be applied to help improve the design of many real-world applications/products as well as to many of our everyday experiences, such as those related to the appreciation of food, marketing, packaging design, the development of enhanced sensory substitution systems, art, and man-machine interfaces. Crucially, the authors makes a convincing argument for the view that one cannot really understand touch, especially not in a real-world context, without placing it in a multisensory context. That is, the senses interact to influence tactile perception in everything - from changing the feel of a surface or product by changing the sound it makes or the fragrance it has. For students and researchers in the brain sciences, this book presents a valuable and fascinating exploration into one of our least understood senses
