Product Info

The book that redefines home cookery for the twenty-first century. Until now, home cooking has remained stubbornly out of touch with technological development but Heston Blumenthal, champion of the scientific kitchen, is set to change all that with his radical new book. With meticulous precision, he explains what the most effective techniques are and why they work. Heston at Home will change the way you think about cooking forever – prepare for a culinary revolution.

The first part of the book maps out the new techniques in 15 sections:

  1. Taste and flavour
  2. Seasoning and the five tastes
  3. Stocks and infusing
  4. Soups and purees
  5. Brining, curing, marinating, macerating
  6. Meat
  7. Fish
  8. Vegetables
  9. Pasta, grains, pulses
  10. Sauces, emulsions, thickening
  11. Tarts and other doughs and pastries
  12. Chocolate
  13. Ice cream, sorbets, custards
  14. Sous-vide cookery
  15. Taking control of the kitchen

In the second part, there are 150 specially created recipes. Here at last is the secret to irrefutably perfect fish and chips, as well as a few more unconventional dishes like salmon with liquorice, or lardy cake with whisky ice cream.

A new favorite

An interesting book full of nifty tips and makes you understand the science behind cooking. The recipes are easy (nothing space age-y like you would expect from Heston) and delicious.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

So interesting

The book is written just like Heston talks. It is incredibly interesting and I find myself reading it like a novel. I haven't tried the recipes yet (only had the book 1 week), but I can't wait because I know they will work. The measurements are so precise and the recipes don't look too complicated. For the people who want to experiment, there are some recipes that will stretch you. My next Yuppiec Read more
