Heston Blumenthal's Victorian Feast

20090303-hestonvict.jpg

As part of the Heston's Feasts series on the UK's Channel 4, Heston Blumenthal revisits Victorian England with dishes inspired by the ostentatious era. He injects grubs with tomato concentrate and creates an edible pocket watch made from stock ("freeze, filter, freeze, whiz in a centrifuge, freeze again, set in moulds and cover in gold leaf").

The Victorian feast aired a little more than three hours ago in England, but if you live in the UK or Ireland, you can watch it online here. [via @frugalcook]
