Heston is the owner of The Fat Duck, a 3 Michelin star restaurant in England that seems to have some very interesting techniques and dishes.
He has a few different series out there. I really like the "How to cook like Heston", where he chooses one big topic (beef, chicken, potatoes, etc) and covers some big points, and "In Search of Perfection", where he chooses one signature dish and goes in-depth on what can make it really work. I really enjoy his approach and how he presents his knowledge. Some can be controversial and impractical, but it's very cool how they come to development.
I'm not very familiar with cooking at all, so I'd like to hear your thoughts!
