Book Larder presents
Ferran Adria: Inside elBulli

Great Hall; Enter on Eighth Avenue. $12-$700.

Ferran Adria

Advance tickets for this event have SOLD OUT; join Book Larder’s waitlist for tickets hereOne 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.

Presented by: Book Larder.
Tickets: $12 for author talk only; $700 for reception, author talk and copy of the $625 book.
Doors open: 6 p.m.
Learn more: Listen to Adria’s 2011 talk at Harvard.

    Will there potential for entrance if we wait in line? Or is it so completely sold out that it will be near impossible to get in?
