El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

At El Bulli – repeatedly voted the world’s best restaurant – renowned Spanish chef Ferran Adriá blends science and art as he pushes the boundaries of avant garde cuisine. An elegant, detailed study of the creation of a new season’s menu in a culinary “lab,” this film provides a rare glimpse of the work of the man who helped bring molecular gastronomy to the forefront of modern cooking. 

Prior to the film, Mark Smith, Certified Executive Chef, will provide us with a primer on molecular gastronomy.  While working in Spain, Smith had the opportunity to meet and work with Ferran Adriá at the Gastronomique Convention in San Sebastian.
