Dining at his Fat Duck is a more cerebral affair than the restaurant’s name might imply. Despite the fact that his kitchen is more like a laboratory than your typical galley, each bite of vacuumed or slower-than-slow-cooked food turns out to be a sumptuous, satisfying morsel.

Specialties: The constantly changing menu is a study in up to 30 courses. Snail porridge is one example that has generated much praise.
