ELBULLI: FERRAN ADRIA & THE ART OF FOOD

Before Heston Blumenthal, there was Ferran AdriĆ , head chef of the now-legendary elBulli restaurant at Cajal Montjol on Spain's Costa Brava, a man who brought risk, freedom and creativity to food and cooking, and whose innovative and daring approach has had a lasting influence on how food is cooked, presented and perceived.
