Heston Blumenthal is a proponent of modern cooking; he opened his own research and development kitchen. He is a molecular gastronomist, though he dislikes the term, believing it makes the practice sound "complicated" and "elitist." He holds multiple honorary degrees in recognition of his scientific approach to cooking. Heston Blumenthal is a proponent of low temperature, ultra-slow cooking, whereby a joint of meat is cooked for up to 24 hours so as to contain the fat content while preventing collagen molecules from re-forming within the meat. Blumenthal is also a proponent of the Sous-vide cooking technique. Sous-vide, which means "under vacuum" in French is a technique that entails cooking something that has been vacuum sealed in a plastic bag.
Heston Blumenthal and his restaurant "The Fat Duck" have been credited as instigators of the bacon dessert "craze". He was preparing sweet and savoury bacon-and-egg ice cream as early as 2004, and news "about the intriguingly odd confection quickly spread through the food world."
