The Fat Duck Cookbook: Smaller, Cheaper, Just As Awesome


While we loved Heston Blumenthal's Big Fat Duck Cookbook — the crazy-gorgeous imagery! the insane-inspiring recipes! — we were not really so into its three-figure pricetag. So we were psyched to learn that there'd be a smaller, cheaper version released at some point in the indeterminate future.

The indeterminate future is now: The Fat Duck Cookbook (preorder on Amazon) will be shipping October 13, complete with the original Dave McKean illustrations — albeit minus the slipcase and the word "Big" in the title. The cover, too, is different: the original book's bare blackness has been replaced with a vibrant McKean image displaying various Blumenthalian visual metaphors: a maze, blindfolds, a child and a man, juggling fish. We'd expect nothing less, really.

  1. I really, really wanted a copy of the "Big Fat" version of this book, but as stated above, the price scared me away. October 13th, hurry up!
