The Fat Duck

Ever since I tried Heston Blumenthal’s spin-off restaurant at Mandarin Oriental hotel, I was quite sceptical about what he was doing. Thanks to a dear friend, who was brave enough to wait for one hour on a phone, simultaneously click on The Fat Duck’s online reservations, and, finally reserve two months in advance, I was able to get into the real thing. Lunch at The Fat Duck has brought me back to the main reason why I love blogging about gastronomy. Heston Blumenthal is a true genius, who is capable to balance visual and sensory aspects of food with its deliciousness. Forget about all his TV appearances or supermarket¬†endorsements, the dessert in the picture above was just one of many examples of how talented Heston Blumenthal is.
