Heston Blumenthal

Heston Blumenthal is considered to be one of the best and
most influential chefs of his generation. Completely self-
taught, he has pushed the boundaries of a traditional kitchen
and changed the way people cook and think about eating.
After extensive academic research, Heston was the first chef
to affirm that eating is a ‘Multi-Sensory experience’.

His fascination with the evolution of our bodies and minds has
led him to devote his life researching this field and he is now
working with the education sector on several projects,
including contributing to the OCR GSCE in ‘Food
Preparation and Nutrition’ and to the Reading University
course – ‘A history of Royal Food and Feasting’.
