Sue Baker's view...

A Heston Blumenthal book that will satisfy the more experimental home cook but doesn’t forget the novice cook wanting to try Heston’s cookery methods for the first time. Heston Blumenthal presents not just the recipes but gives plenty of space to breaking down the how and why of cookery allowing users to improve their kitchen skills.
