Heston Blumenthal con Further Adventures in Search of Perfection
Further Adventures in Search of Perfection Reinventing Kitchen Classics
Praise for IN SEARCH OF PERFECTION: 'What fun it is to follow in this gastro-wizard's footsteps as he fastidiously traces the cultural history of the ingredients ... [this] doesn't detract from the reader's pleasure in exploring the byways of Blumenthal's capacious brain.' Paul Levy, OBSERVER Food Books for Christmas 'The approach is always fascinating with interesting info and idiosyncratic twists abounding. At heart Blumenthal simply believes in good food, and the bonus is that he can write very well - in places almost poetically - about it.' WHAT'S ON IN LONDON 'While science is Blumenthal's forte, it is a background theme to his preoccupation with flavour and texture and the best means to capture these. The style is matter of fact, the narrative dynamic ... Along the way he gives so many facts that a reading can't fail to improve the quality of life.' Tom Jaine, GUARDIAN Books of the Year
