Heston Blumenthal and his team, working closely with the UK Space Agency, ESA and NASA, attempt to revolutionise the previously limited world of space food. British astronaut Tim Peake set Heston a task before embarking on his mission at the International Space Station, which was to create seven dishes that would remind him of home, helping to combat the emotional impact of his journey. Heston takes Tim on a nostalgic trip back to his childhood with every bite, providing much-needed comfort food and creating the quintessential cup of tea - the first to be sipped in Space.
Heston Blumenthal devises the ultimate romantic meal to test whether there truly is a connection between food and love.
Culinary alchemist Heston Blumenthal brings back the wonder and excitement of childhood food, awakening the kid in every viewer as he builds the world's largest 99 Flake, makes a packed lunch of giant KitKats, and a record breaking bag of Hula Hoops. Heston creates a whole pub inside a pie and a giant pyramid tea bag, served in a suitably enormous teapot. He also rejoices in all that is magical about Christmas treats with Britain's biggest Christmas pudding, edible tree decorations, and a snow globe and snowball cocktail.
Counterpoint is one of the more complex musical theories and therefore often bypassed by many but its theory lays down the foundations musical relationships between different melodies. An understanding of the theory reveals how to create a working relationship between a bass and melody (rather than one following the other note for note, pitch for pitch), and is employed by many artists including Deadmau5 and Sasha to produce a complex musical relationship between multiple melodies.
The art of counterpoint is the art of combining melodic lines. The essence of counterpoint, however, is something deeper than a process of manipulation. It is an ingredient of the inner vitality of music and is found in nearly all music. It is to an understanding of counterpoint as such that this book is directed. Sixth impression.
