I should of titled this Heston’s Fantastical Feast. I won’t hide that I am a bit of a Heston Blumenthal fan girl, okay far more than ‘a bit’. I’m a big fan of the man. He originally captivated my imagination with his TV series Heston’s Feasts. Each week Josh and I would wait in anticipation for the amazing meal Heston would create for his guests. Would it be the Fairy Tale Feast or the Gothic Horror Feast that week? Watching him magically transform food, creating something different and unusual fascinated me. It still does. Oh how I still yearn to be invited to one of those feasts.
I’m sure I’m not the only Aussie that is caught up in the magic Heston weaves. The popularity of Heston’s seasonal fare available at Coles during Christmas and Easter indicates that I’m not. But now we don’t have to wait for a seasonal holiday to enjoy some of Heston’s magic, the range has been expanded for everyday eating. Some of our most iconic dishes have been given a unique twist, a touch of Heston magic.
The lovely people at Coles sent me out everything in the new Heston for Coles range to try. With so much food, it seemed the perfect opportunity to hold an impromptu dinner party for my nearest and dearest. Dishes designed by Heston, the closest I will probably ever get to attending one of his fantastical feasts.
