Editorial Reviews

Review

A lavish, beautiful volume, presented in a cloth-bound crimson slipcase . . . There has never been a book like this. . . I could happily spend several days with this book and not even enter the kitchen. (Jeffrey Steingarten, Vogue)

Dazzling . . . There's culinary sorcery at every turn. (Time Out New York)

It's nearly impossible to sum up the awesomeness of this exquisitely packaged amalgamation of photographic still lifes, illustrations, and historic recipes. Lauded British chef Heston Blumenthal gives us a collector's item, a time capsule, and the ideal holiday gift all wrapped into one. (DailyCandy)

[A] book that defies description... A headfirst dive down the rabbit hole, with Blumenthal as the Mad Hatter. (William Grimes, The New York Times Book Review)

A massive must-have. (Tom Kerridge, Observer)

A sumptuous gold and wine-red slip-cased bible . . . Mr. Blumenthal takes us on a wild ride. (Moira Hodgson, Wall Street Journal)

If Willy Wonka ran Hogwarts, Historic Heston would be the history textbook. (Eater.com)

I read this book cover to cover just like I did Heston's Fat Duck book. I am sure I will cook a few items here and there from it starting with the "meat fruit" in the shape of a mandarin using chicken liver. The strength here though is not in recipes you want to whip up for a quick family dinner. Rather, it is a remarkable record of how Heston Blumenthal researched historic British recipes going back hundreds of years and then documenting how he re-created them at Fat Duck or his other restaurant Dinner. I would be remiss not to mention the "art" of this volume, from the sturdy attractive case to the psychedelic illustrations and the photographs of beautifully composed dishes. The writing is superb and clear with equal parts history lesson and culinary education.

Great book with awesome production quality. I highly recommend to any foodies. The book and it’s cover look a million bucks and the material by Mr. Blumenthal is top notch.

This was a Christmas gift to our daughter who had eaten at Heston's restaurant in London in June. She loved the book as a memento of a great meal.

Beautiful... the historic documents are as fascinating as Heston's modernist interpretations.
