The thing I love and enjoy about this book is that it is Heston. It's like being inside his head. The attention to detail in every aspect of every dish through out the book is phenominal. Each time you pick it up, you learn a little bit more about something else.

This book raised the bar in my eyes of what a cook book should be. I read it cover to cover and probably tried three things but I still found it massively inspiring of what is possible.

A science manual for those who love to cook - wonderfully informative.
