Fern Adria has been called the world’s greatest chef. His three michelin star restaurant, El Bulli, was named best restaurant in the world by the prestigious Restaurantmagazine. Without a doubt, Ferran Adria will hold a prominent place in culinary history.
In the late 1980’s, Adria began performing cooking experiments which would forever change El Bulli’s place in culinary history. Adria’s experiments are often associated with Molecular Gastronomy, the application of science to culinary practices and cooking phenomena. His creations are designed to surprise and enchant his guests but the importance of taste is always the ultimate goal.
Since Adrià shuttered ElBulli in 2011, he has lent his brand to collaborations with everyone from Spanish telecom company Telefónica to the theatrical producer Cirque du Soleil. He has been the subject of art exhibits and he has taught at Harvard. BulliPedia has described as “a Western haute cuisine Wikipedia at the service of information but also creativity.”
And finally, Adria’s last endeavour is the elBulli Foundation and the elBulliLab where he investigates the connection between cooking and creativity.
