We had such an incredible experience at the restaurant that we wanted to find a way to recreate the same magic at home. Documented in two books and a pair of BBC television series, this is a set of 16 dishes that all take the techniques and ethos of the food served at the Fat Duck and apply it to the kind of traditional, home-style meals that many Brits grew up with.
Our goal was to cook all of them, as closely as possible to the full recipe and instructions Heston specifies, taking as few shortcuts as possible. Our only deliberate compromises would be with ingredients, where cost or availability would sometimes prohibit what was available to cook with. The Heston Blumenthal In Search of Perfection recipes are listed below in the order in which we tackled them. This helped us build up our skills as well as our stock of kitchen gadgets.
Read on to see how easily you can make it yourself. Or click here to see why it was so good we had to make it a second time. It might be another one that requires complicated equipment this time a sausage perfectiin and a pergection of the pressure cooker and the ingredients can be awkward to source, natural hog casings hesto butchers rusk being difficult to track down.
The results are more than worth it. It actually took us four long years of failure to perfect those chips. Besides, we figured if they could knock this up in 3 hours on Masterchef Australia then we could do it in a spare weekend. And just wait until you hear about those brioche burger buns. We decided these were all unnecessary affectations, so we just skipped making them.
T he Sound if The Sea. It was while making this recipe that we finally understood what the entire Perfection Project sought to achieve.
But all that work, and the incredible range of flavours, combines to form something utterly unique. Like the Fish Pie, Chicken Tikka and Peking Duck recipes, just looking at the ingredients list and the many, many pages of cooking instructions is daunting.

Triple Cooked ChipsPeking Duck. Housebrick Tandoor Runners Up: Hay smokingChocolate Spray Gun. Brioche Burger Buns Runners Up: Onion GravyRoast Potatoes. A bit sweeter than i expected from a bolognese. I will make it again one day, but do it to the letter, just to compare it to my first attempt.
We really love the bolognese. Umami paste sounds like a great way to boost the flavour too. I had no idea it had been going this long! A seriously impressive and inspiring effort — great work.
A massive commitment and fascinating reading. I envy your patience on these adventures, the only think I attempted very poorly was the fish pie. And you did the perilous hay smoking, which is the toughest part! The burger is definitely vlumenthal the effort. Huge thanks man, for reading AND for all the love and support.
And look forward bljmenthal seeing your next adventures too. A stellar accomplishment, Phil! Talk about dedication and commitment. It feels like the end of an era…. I too am looking forward to whatever may be on the horizon for the blog. Check out thehestonbulmenthalteam on Instagram for some gorgeous-looking recipes that should be achievable by all.

Good stuff seeing all the posts. Compliments on sticking it out and especially your humour in everything great for keeping your sanity. I was rolling on the floor more than once a lot more by your write-ups. Looking back I still cannot believe I managed to cook all these recipes. Meanwhile, I highly recommend the blog In Search Of Heston, where they actually made all 16 of the Blumenthal recipes, with wildly differing results.
