Whatever is causing Heston Blumenthal's current obsession with giant food has led him to create some seriously wonderful culinary creations. The viewers of his latest fantastical feasts show have seen giant eggs, biscuits and the world's largest ice cream rustled up so far and for his latest Christmas show the chef will cook a giant Christmas pudding.
The pudding, which will be part of the chef's Fantastical Christmas show which airs this evening, is 3 meters high and was mixed using a lorry meant for mixing cement.
It contains 600 kg of raisins, 45 liters of alcohol and a whopping 1 ton of flour. The experimental chef will also be rustling up edible Christmas decorations, snow cocktails and dismissing the classic Christmas turkey in place of a pig's head.
