"Heston Blumenthal is a man who has made cooking a science" The Observer
Heston's passion for food was kindled at the age of 10 by a family visit to Provence. As a teenager he started to experiment in the kitchen, before taking a day job as a debt-collector with his parents' finance company. Amassing a hoard of books, he gradually worked his way through the fundamental techniques, from sauce-making to charcuterie.
What he offers you
Heston is that rarest of creatures in Britain - a totally self-taught chef. But when he entered the profession he wasn't wholly without training, after all, given the pressures of the modern restaurant business, what could be more useful than a background in kick boxing and debt-collecting? The Fat Duck, his three-Michelin-starred restaurant in the village of Bray in Berkshire was also voted Best Restaurant in the UK by the Good Food Guide 2008. His Television Programme Heston Blumenthal- In Search of Perfection showing his unique approach to British classic dishes gained a GQ Glenfiddich award in 2007.
