Ferran Adria has been called the world’s greatest chef.
Gourmet magazine referred to Adria as “the Salvador Dali of the kitchen”.
His restaurant, El Bulli has been named best restaurant in the world by multiple publications and critics.
It booked out years in advance and despite it being at the end of a mountain road every dining session was always full.
Ferran Adria is a culinary genius. He has created new styles of cooking and combined ingredients in unique ways.
Cookbooks are one the biggest selling book categories.
We buy them to look pretty in our kitchens or learn new dishes for the repertoire.
Ferran Adria has written 12 of them.
So you can buy his cookbook, get all the right ingredients and create something at home that is exactly the same as the world’s greatest restaurant.
But it doesn’t work like that.
It’s not going to taste the same.
It’s not going to look the same.
In fact despite the ingredients being identical it will come out completely different to the original creation.
Information is everywhere.
It is abundant and often free.
But knowing the ingredients isn’t enough.
You need to know how to put the recipe together.
