Ferran Adria coming to Vancouver in 2010?

Rumour from my Barcelonian friend has it that Ferran Adria will be in Vancouver in early summer 2010 for some type of Spanish consulate celebration. Anyone heard anything re. specifics?

        Is there a restaurant currently in Vancouver that features "molecular gastronomy"?

        I had dismissed it as tantamount to "culinary masturbation" but a couple of articles and the show when Bourdain went to Spain and visited with Adria got me interested.

        Now if only I could win the lotto to both get a reservation and pay for it..........

          Certain fine dining places dabble in the techniques (eg C uses trasglutaminate aka "meat glue" etc.). I've had spherified vegetable juices (ie sodium alginate gel) at a couple of other places (notably the now defunct Rare). But for the most part, the MG fad didn't gain traction here.
