Advance tickets for this event have SOLD OUT; join Book Larder’s waitlist for tickets here. One of the world’s greatest chefs is sharing his secrets. Spain’s Ferran Adria, chef of the famous elBulli restaurant, has published the 7-volume set elBulli 2005-2011, chronicling the restaurant’s final years through a whopping 750 recipes. More than a cookbook, it documents the restless creative process of this “wizard of gastronomy”–so restless that in 2011 Adria closed the restaurant to focus on unfettered experimentation. Part interactive museum, part laboratory/“culinary think tank,” the new elBulli Foundation will be up and running in 2015.
Tickets for the event are only $12, but $700 includes a copy of the $625 book and access to a private reception with Adria, catered by The Walrus and The Carpenter and Gramercy Cellars.
