Heston Blumenthal used to write in a shed

Before Chef and alchemist Heston Blumenthal got his development kitchen he used to write his recipes in his shed, according the the always useful Writers room over at the guardian.


This is the Fat Duck’s development kitchen, also known as the lab. Before we got this space I was in a garden shed and then a porta-kitchen, which was all very Heath Robinson and involved lots of masking tape and mastic.
