Masterchef Ferran Adrià is a gastronomic hero, a pioneer and an illustriously great chef. His culinary empire stems around the world, blessing each location with boundary-pushing, gastronomic phenomena that leave its guests dumb-struck and in love. Most popular is the now defunct elBulli, which was voted The World’s Best Restaurant five times in a row from 2002 to 2009, with over 2 million reservation requests every year.
Experimenting with ingredients, flavours and techniques, chef Adrià’s culinary career began in a renovated beach shack in Spain, pioneering Molecular Gastronomy. In 1984, upon joining the kitchen staff at elBulli as a line cook, Ferran was nominated Head Chef only to make it one of the most sought after restaurants showcasing avant-garde cuisine.
Today, chef Adrià writes cookbooks, teaches and lectures on cooking, stars in culinary programs and has launched LaBullipedia, a type of culinary Wikipedia.
