This is the USA hardcover edition. It is excellent quality and highly recommended but it does not compare to the beautiful slip-cased The BIG Fat Duck Cookbook edition from Australia. ISBN 9780747583691. So if money is not an issue then please consider the larger one as it is an absolute collectible and we generally keep copies in stock.
Back by popular demand, a lower-priced version of the must-have book from the genius behind the Fat Duck, the restaurant named best in the world by Restaurant magazine.
The cookbook hailed by the Los Angeles Times as a “showstopper” and by Jeffrey Steingarten of Vogue as “the most glorious spectacle of the season…like no other book I have seen in the past twenty years” is now available in a reduced-price edition. With a reduced trim size but an identical interior, this lavishly illustrated, stunningly designed, and gorgeously photographed masterpiece takes you inside the head of maverick restaurateur Heston Blumenthal. Separated into three sections (History; Recipes; Science), the book chronicles Blumenthal’s improbable rise to fame and, for the first time, offers a mouth-watering and eye-popping selection of recipes from his award-winning restaurant. He also explains the science behind his culinary masterpieces, the technology and implements that make his alchemical dishes come to life. Designed by acclaimed artist Dave McKean—and filled with photographs by Dominic Davies—this artfully rendered celebration of one of the world’s most innovative and renowned chefs is a foodie’s dream.

Comments about The Fat Duck Cookbook:
It is an insight into the workings of Heston Blumenthal, a celebrity chef who is one of the doyens of molecular gastronomy (which, by the way, looks like it is on the way down). In any case, it is an interesting read.
The recipes are detailed and involve specialised products, so for me, it is more of an inspiration than something to cook out of regularly.
Beautiful photography, amazing creations.
