    I love this book. There are so many simple ideas on how to cook something easier or better. It opens up the imagination and gets me motivated to be better at cooking. Ice cream with dry ice! Stock in the pressure cooker! I just would not have thought about it. So interesting.

    A brilliant effort from all the contributors, it is masterfully done and a piece of art. It gives us some insight into what we take so for granted, “eating”. It is not for “home cooks” and “recipe collectors”.

    I am sure in the next century Heston will be credited for such an effort.

    It’s a beautiful art book, a fascinating autobiography, a science primer and a cookbook. Even if you never try any of HB’s recipes, a great addition to any library.

    A fascinating read, with beautiful illustrations and photography of Blumenthal’s otherwordly creations. I highly doubt I’ll attempt even a single recipe from this book, but it’s well worth the cost regardless.

    There is no question that the first edition of Heston Blumenthal’s book is an amazing creation; I would go to the point of calling it a work of art given its glorious design, originality and extraordinary photography. I bought the original very expensive version and was so impressed that I returned the next day to buy a copy for a friend, a distinguished chef.

    Considering the significant reduction in price from the original release, this reissue represents excellent value. It must be noted however that the quality of the photographic reproduction, while good in itself, does not have the clarity and color definition found in the original. Additionaly the format size is somewhat smaller and the paper quality above average rather than exceptional. I realise that the first issue was very pricey, but my investment has delivered great dividends in enjoying its decadent luxury in private contemplation and impressing as well as sharing it with friends. In acquiring the cheaper edition it will still be possible to marvel at the extraordinarily complicated recipes, interesting text and beautiful photography. But if you can, try save your pennies and buy the original. I guarantee you won’t regret the extravagance
