Product description

Celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal is the man who turned the world of cuisine on its head and became a national hero with three Michelin stars. This is the inspirational story of his enthusiastic, self-taught genius. Heston is a gastronomic alchemist who sees the kitchen as a laboratory where he loves to experiment in ways to tantalise the taste-buds of diners at the Fat Duck restaurant and his newest restaurant Dinner. This biography traces his journey from a life-changing childhood holiday in France, through to his brief apprenticeship in Raymond Blanc's restaurant where he stood up to a kitchen bully. It then follows his as - constantly pushing the boundaries of his work - he reaches the top of his profession.
