Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Heston Blumenthal has made his name creating such original dishes as

Snail Porridge and Nitrogen Scrambled Egg and Bacon Ice Cream at his

internationally acclaimed restaurant, The Fat Duck. In this book,

a single-volume edition of the bestselling Perfection books, Heston focuses his creative talent on reinventing some of our most

well-known (and most abused) dishes.

He travels around the world in search of definitive versions of sixteen

classic dishes: Roast Chicken and Roast Potatoes, Pizza, Hamburger,

Bangers and Mash, Fish Pie, Steak, Spaghetti Bolognese, Risotto, Fish

and Chips, Chilli Con Carne, Chicken Tikka Masala, Peking duck, Black

Forest Gateau, Treacle Tart and Ice Cream, Trifle and Baked Alaska.

Among the many adventures on his quest, he travels to Delhi and makes

an MRI scan of the marinated chicken in his Tikki Masala; he discovers

the secret to the ultimate crispy duck in Peking and experiments at

home by inflating a Gressingham on a footpump; he walks the Dickensian

streets of Lambeth and learns how to capture the essence of a fish and

chip shop in a perfume bottle, and he explores the Willy Wonka-esque

Tate&Lyle factory and tastes some seventy-year-old syrup that

proves an inspiration for the flavour of his treacle tart.

Total Perfection is an original, inspiring and fascinating voyage around the culinary globe.
