Heston Blumenthal, who recently won the top accolade at this year's Craft Guild of Chefs awards, has been given money by the Government to improve the food dished up in hospitals, said The Telegraph.

Blumenthal has joined forces with the NHS and Reading University to try and excite people with food again. The celebrity chef, who is famed for his unusual dishes such as snail porridge and sardine sorbet, explained at the Cheltenham Science Festival: "Mealtimes should be something to be celebrated in hospital. They should be something to look forward to, and they're not." He added: "Older people in hospital often have to get a lot of their nutrients and energy through drinks, the flavour of which is not at all nice. The project is exploring ways to rejuvenate the dining environment in hospital and improve the flavour in the mouth."
