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.

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. You think you know about British cooking? Think again.

Once upon a time there was a Chef called Heston who opened a smallrestaurant called the Fat Duck. At first, he served only simpleFrench classics but gradually, as is the way of things, the Chef'scuriosity got the better of him and he began thinking up more unusualdishes, such as Snail Porridge and Chocolate Wine. Word spread and reached the ears of the Executives who ran a televisionchannel, and they summoned the Chef to their glass fortress. "Wecommand you to create six Fantastical Feasts," they said. "Thesemust be based on history, but you may draw on fairytales andlegends. We should warn you that the Quest will involve journeysto Transylvania in search of the legendary Leech Recipe of Sibiu, andto the Black Forest to eat the eyes of the Wild Boar ofMünstertal. You must resist the temptations of the BurlesqueGirls, and you must turn chocolate cake into a raging fireball andchicken's testicles into jelly beans. There will be hunting forhallucinogenic mushrooms and cooking with Play-Doh. Out of this,you must create the most magical dishes imaginable." "Well, how about lickable wallpaper, a savoury Zoom lolly, achocolate-covered iceberg, a golden egg and an edible graveyard?"offered the Chef. "It's a start," said the Executives. "Oh, and once you haveachieved the Quest, you must bring us proof, in the form of aBook. But not just any Book. We want tales of extravagantingredients, of revolutionary techniques, of familiar kitchenappliances put to unfamiliar uses. We want to see what yousee. Taste what you taste. In short, we want complete andunparalleled access to your fantastical world."

For all of history, minus the last thirty years, fat has been at the centre of human diets and cultures. McLagan sets out with equal parts passion, scholarship and appetite to win us back to a healthy relationship with animal fats. She achieves this through enlightening us with the many ways fat is indispensable to our health and by demonstrating, through a range of delicious recipes, how fat is fundamental to the flavour of our food. Observing that we may now know everything about olive oil, we may not know what to do with lard or bone marrow, McLagan offers extensive guidance on sourcing, rendering, flavouring, using and storing animal fats, whether bacon, schmaltz or suet. Stories, lore, quotations and tips round out this rich and unapologetic celebration of food at its very best. The book is divided into sections by type of fat – Butter (worth it), Pork Fat (the king), Poultry Fat (versatile and good for you), Beef and Lamb Fats (overlooked but tasty)– and each chapter opens with a comprehensive description of the history, the types and the uses of each type of fat followed by a range of fabulous recipes. Jennifer McLagan is a chef and a much sought –after food stylist and writer who has worked around the world, including Paris, London and Australia. Her first book Bones (2005) was widely acclaimed and won the James Beard award for single subject food writing. She is a regular contributor to Fine Cooking and Food & Drink. She currently lives in Toronto with her husband.

From Tom Colicchio, chef/co-owner of New York’s acclaimed Gramercy Tavern, comes a book that profiles the food and philosophy of Craft, his unique restaurant in the heart of New York’s Flatiron district, and winner of the 2002 James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant in America. From its food to its architecture and menu design, Craft has been celebrated for its courageous movement away from culinary theatrics and over-the-top presentations, back to the simple magic of great food. Realizing that his own culinary style had grown increasingly unembellished, and gambling that New York diners were experiencing that same kind of culinary fatigue (brought on by too much “fancy food”), Colicchio set out to prove that the finest food didn’t have to be the most complicated. From its opening in March 2001, Craft offered diners simple, soulful dishes centered around single ingredients that went on to shake up many people’s ideas of what “restaurant food” should be like. Craft of Cooking leads you through Colicchio’s thought process in choosing raw materials—like what to look for in fresh fish, or how to choose the perfect mushroom—to show that good food is available to anyone with access to a good supermarket, farm stand, or gourmet grocery. The book also features “Day-in-the-Life-of-Craft” portraits, which offer a fascinating, behind-the-scenes glimpse at areas of the restaurant beyond the dining room. These segments allow the reader to peer into the fast-paced prep kitchen, to witness the high drama of reservations, and to get a taste of the humor and empathy necessary to serve New York’s colorful visitors and foodies. And then there are the recipes. Craft of Cooking presents 140 recipes that range from the simplest dish of spring peas to roasted fish; from lush but effortless braises to complex brining and curing of meat for homemade charcuterie, included to give the reader a “fly-on-the-wall” experience of visiting the Craft kitchen for themselves. Dishes are divided–like the Craft menu itself–into categories of meat, fish, vegetables, potatoes, grains, desserts, and pantry, and then further delineated by technique–roasting, braising, sautéing, etc.–with abundant suggestions and technical tips. Using Tom’s straightforward and friendly voice, Craft of Cooking offers recipes suited to any purpose—from a quick family meal to a festive dinner party for twelve. As he did in his James Beard award-winning book, Think Like a Chef, Colicchio uses Craft of Cooking to teach, tell his story, and offer inspiration to cooks of any skill level. With more than 100 full-color and black-and-white photographs, Craft of Cooking is destined to become a staple of home cooks everywhere—the one “restaurant cookbook” they can’t live without.
