Absolutely fascinating to watch.

You should see the inside of Heston's kitchen 'The Fat Duck' (or whatever it is called). It looks like a science lab... quite literally! Little bubbling devices everywhere, (no not pots and pans, haha) special weighing equipment and temperature gauges.

I might be wrong - but I think Heston has been awarded a few scientific prizes...? (Bristol University rings a bell, but maybe he studied there.)
