Heston Blumenthal is, well, a pretty awesome chef. His Fat Duck restaurant gets rave reviews, and his television programs for BBC are basically a thinking mans version of Food Network’s Good Eats (which, to be fair, is a smart show in its own right). The Big Fat Duck Cookbook offers some background on Blumenthal and some recipes that those of us less brilliant behind the stove top may find difficult. That said, if you like food and its history, the tome should be a winner. (via Daily Icon)
