Heston Blumenthal: In Search of Perfection isn’t as polished as a Delia or an Oliver. Not as in-yer-face charismatic as a Ramsay or as passionate as a Stein. He sometimes appeared awkward presenting his recipes. This though is a new kind of cooking show. Torchwood joked about CSI Cardiff and the speed of a flying kebab. Well this is the chef to calculate that speed. To perfect the recipe and to have the animated graphics to illustrate it too. Name me another TV cooking show where liquid Nitrogen is an ingredient. You can’t. That’s what makes this show special, new and different. I’m looking forward to the next few Tuesday nights.

Can you imagine the funny look the staff will give you in your local Tesco if you go in and ask where the dry ice is?
They got all those ingredients in because Delia was using them. A bit of solid carbon dioxide should be a doddle to source by comparison to an obscure exotic fruit from the other side of the planet.
Off to buy your slab of dry ice for your Jersey ice cream???
Don't forget your goggles, gloves, towel and all important mallet...
