Chef Heston Blumenthal is a top draw when it comes to TV chefs in the UK, having starred in several programs for Discovery Science, the BBC and Channel 4. He also fares quite well in the real world as a chef, with his restaurant, The Fat Duck, the recipient of three Michelin stars. With this, his latest series, Blumenthal shows aspiring home cooks how to dive into preparing some of his dishes – no small task, considering his penchant for combining chemistry with cookery (also known as molecular gastronomy, a term that Blumenthal reportedly dislikes). For those of us who may be culinarily challenged but who strive to do better, you can’t do much better than having this smart cookie show you how to make… a smart cookie.
