Early Delivery

Santa certainly came early and bearing a rather hefty gift.

Coming it at over 11 pounds/5 kilos - this isn't your average cookbook. If the feather doesn't clue you in then maybe

the distinctive silhouette will.

It is The Big Fat Duck Cook Book by Heston Blumenthal.

I don't even know if cookbook is really the right word to describe it. It's not something that I'll be lugging into the kitchen and it's certainly not something you can snuggle in bed with.

There's a lot to digest and while not entirely practical, it will be highly informative and fascinating.

  5. Yikes Chip, amazon uk has gone way up, I got it delivered at less than £60. I see why, they have run out and the price is from their third party sellers. From what I can see if you can get it around the $150US then it's a good deal.
