A self-taught chef, Heston Blumenthal's route to the top has been an unconventional one, involving rule-breaking and unusual experiments. He is the chef and owner of The Fat Duck, a three-Michelin-starred restaurant in Berkshire, and voted best restaurant in the world by Restaurant magazine in 2005. Blumenthal is famous for his scientific approach and has been described as a culinary alchemist for his innovative style of cooking.
British culture is one of the most audacious when it comes to experimenting with new kinds of food and the idea of a science of gastronomy has indeed found its master in England. Heston Blumenthal is the greatest culinary researcher in all fields. Besides his ability to change food into a delight of the senses, Heston Blumenthal uses the power of suggestiveness to direct the ability of the brain to determine taste. He wants to take by surprise our senses of taste and of sight, and to influence our brain with sounds and smells. Nevertheless, Heston Blumenthal reveals to us that scientific research can go hand in hand with art and that he does not feed us technical preparations. He says that he wants to satisfy his customers' minds, hearts and taste-buds.
