Publisher review:
One of the world’s renowned chefs, Heston Blumenthal has made his name creating such original – and some might say bizarre – dishes as Snail porridge and nitrogen scrambled egg and bacon ice cream at his internationally acclaimed restaurant, The Fat Duck. Heston decided, though, that it was time to go back to both his and our roots and to focus his creative talent on reinventing some of our most well-known and abused dishes.
In order to do this he travelled around the world in search of “perfect” versions of eight dishes which represent the essence of our culinary heritage:
- Roast chicken and roast potatoes.
- Pizza.
- Bangers and mash.
- Steak.
- Spaghetti Bolognese.
- Fish and chips.
- Black Forest Gateau.
- Treacle tart and ice cream.
Everybody’s idea of “perfection” is different, and so Heston, drawing on interviews with experts and cooks as well as using his own culinary and scientific research, sets out to discover what makes these standards so great. He explores the origins of each dish, how to find the best ingredients, and of course the many different ways – and whys – of cooking them to perfection. He reveals priceless culinary tips along the way: everything from how to cut potatoes for flawless frying, to what makes the choicest beef, to the secret ingredients in the perfect spaghetti Bolognese, to capturing the essence of a fish and chip shop in a perfume bottle, to making aerated chocolate bars at home with a vacuum cleaner.
In search of perfection examines the role o food in our lives and memories and is a completely original, inspiring and fascinating exploration of these kitchen classics.
