"An organic and hypnotic account of El Bulli's notoriously intense and complex creative process."

“A gorgeous inside look at one of the most widely regarded restaurants, and one of the most intriguing and creative chefs in the world.”
—Noah Lee, FilmThreat.com
The subject of the current gastronomic tribute at Chicago's ultra-hot Next restaurant, Spanish chef extraordinaire Ferran Adrià is often extolled by his devotees as an alchemist who brings the aesthetics of taste to new heights. Others deride him as a foodie’s Dr. Frankenstein. However you choose to label him, there is no doubt that the world’s foremost proponent of molecular gastronomy aims to bring the principles of science and the sleight-of-hand of magic to the art of cooking. This concentrated portrait conveys the spirit of no-holds-barred experimentation, the discipline, and the tension that characterize Adrià in action with his team in his laboratory-like kitchen as the slate of dishes for a new season at his exclusive restaurant El Bulli is conjured up. In Catalan with English subtitles. HDCAM video. (BS)
