Food porn v proper cookbooks

This article seems to be pointing out the obvious, in that you can’t do Heston Blumental food at home in your own kitchen – you need an army of chefs and a load of very expensive equipment.

It is sad if anyone wastes their time cooking impossibly complicated dishes at home to impress their guests; ultimately, the results are unlikely to impress, and you’d do much better making something simple (that tastes fantastic) and chilling out a bit.

There are two types of cookbook: ‘food porn’ (you just stare at it and feel very hungry); and ‘proper cookery books’ that tell you how to make food that tastes good and looks OK. There’s room for both of them but don’t get them confused! Remember that phrase: “don’t try this at home!”.
