  • British gastronomy has a grand old tradition that has been lost over time. Now one of the world&#39;s most inventive chefs is out to reclaim it with<b> Historic Heston</b> by <b>Heston Blumenthal</b>. Synonymous with cutting-edge cuisine, this chef still finds his greatest source of inspiration in the unique and delicious food that our sceptered isle once produced. This has been the secret to his success at world-famous restaurants The Fat Duck and Dinner, where a contrast between old and new, modern and historic, is key. Historic Heston charts a quest for identity through the best of British cooking that stretches from medieval to late-Victorian recipes. Start with twenty-eight historic dishes, take them apart, put them together again and what have you got? A sublime twenty-first-century take on delicacies including meat fruit (1500), quaking pudding (1660) and mock turtle soup (1892). Heston examines the history behind each one&#39;s invention and the science that makes it work.
