Celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal is a gastronomic alchemist who sees the kitchen as a laboratory where he loves to experiment with new ways to tantalize diners' taste buds. The story of his life is every bit as colorful and attention-grabbing as his famous snail porridge and bacon-and-egg ice cream.
This biography traces his journey from a life-changing childhood holiday in France through to his brief apprenticeship in Raymond Blanc's restaurant, where he stood up to a kitchen bully. It follows him as - constantly pushing the boundaries of his work - he reached the top of his profession and was knighted by the Queen.
Here, for the first time, is the full inspirational story of the enthusiastic, self-taught genius who turned the world of cuisine on its head.

A love letter comprised of glowing reviews...
wouldn't help the story
If I want to read reviews, I know where to look. This book reads more like a Madison Ave press release, than a biography.
