Présentation de l'éditeur
New York City chef/author Anthony Bourdain is invited to film the research laboratory of Ferran Adria, the most controversial and imitated chef in the world—chef/owner of El Bulli, voted "World's Best" by Restaurant Magazine and the most visited by chefs on sabbatical. The lab, an ultra modern, Dr. No-like facility with sliding walls, backlit ingredients, latest equipment and a full staff of devotees is tucked away inside a vast, renaissance-era palace in the old section of Barcelona, Spain. Adria and his chefs close the El Bulli restaurant for six months out of ever year to work on new concepts. Bourdain tracks Ferran's process from lab to a once-in-a-lifetime meal at El Bulli restaurant, enjoying a high-concept, surrealist, haute cuisine meal of unparalleled creativity and striking visual appearance.

Watching this film, I came away with the idea that 1) one's mouth is a sexual organ; 2) ALL sex takes place in the head; 3) Ferran Adria is like Scheherazade; and 4) a dinner at elBulli is the Kama Sutra of the taste buds.
Interesting enough is how Bourdain, of French culinary persuasion, is taken by Adria's rather Japanese approach to taste--individual and discrete tastes as opposed to a mixture, texture, etc.
Areas of improvement:
Bourdain should work with a film maker, do titles instead of voice-over, slow the pace of the presentation, think more at what happens to him.
The viewer should try to read A Day at ElBulli, and get a dinner appointment with Adria('s team).

Although some critics and fellow chefs deride Adrià as the pretentious mad scientist of the food world, this documentary shows why he is so praised by more open-minded critics. This special is hosted by Anthony Bourdain, who previously was skeptical of Adrià, and downright hostile to the role of the laboratory in the science of food. The DVD shows Bourdain's coming to terms with Adrià's radical culinary concepts, and his ultimate embracing of them. From carrot foam to liquid nitrogen, Adrià is definitely a futuristic surreal kitchen firebrand, and Bourdain is the perfect guy to get him to talk about his science and art.
Although the DVD is expensive, it's worth it for a glimpse into one of the most amazing minds ever to step into a kitchen: I highly recommend it.
molecular gastronomy, Chef Adria is the Mr. Wizard of food science, and
he and his crew seem to love their work in the state-of-the-art laboratory where they spend half of each year experimenting with new concepts. Anthony Bourdain is the perfect host to take us through the three-hour dinner that shows off the results of their research. The beginning is a little slow, but
there is nothing quite like this restaurant, and this was a great way to
see what all the fuss is about.
