Ferran Adria: The Picasso of Food

We’ve been intrigued for a while now by the cuisine of Ferran Adria, the Spanish chef for whom food seems a material with which to create a kind of conceptual art experience.

In honour of all the food that surrounds the holidays, we’ve linked HERE back to art critic Jerry Saltz’s great review of his meal at Adria’s restaurant El Bulli.

Here’s the El Bulli website, to book a table if you can wait until 2010. 

Alternatively, his books are available for sale online.
