'I remember the wonder of being a child, when food was always exciting. But that magic I felt as a kid has often disappeared in our adult lives. I want to bring back the wonder of food on a monumental scale, to remind us just how magical food can be... and make us all feel like kids again.'
Culinary alchemist and world renowned chef, Heston Blumenthal, does not baulk at tall orders and makes the wonder and excitement of childhood food possible for those willing to take the adventure. It's obvious that Heston does not take himself too seriously but he does take food seriously.
In Heston's Fantastical Food, episode one of which you can preview above, Heston presents a fantastical series in which he brings back the wonder and excitement of childhood food, awakening the kid in every viewer as he creates amazing super-sized versions of meals and treats. Watch in wonder as Heston builds the world’s largest Flake, makes a packed lunch of giant Kit Kats, and creates the world’s largest boiled egg and cereal on an epic scale. He also creates a whole pub inside a pie and a giant pyramid tea bag, served in a suitably enormous teapot; and rejoices in all that is magical about Christmas treats, with the biggest Christmas pudding large enough to step inside, with edible tree decorations and a snow globe and snowball cocktail!
And speaking of Christmas, the DVD of Heston's Fantastical Food is the perfect stocking filler for food loving family and friends. This magical series wows, entertains and enthrals Heston's fans and geek fans alike, who are looking for another angle to the plethora of cooking shows. It’s Fantastical and everyone's invited!
