This is pretty interesting. El Bulli for the home cook?
Phaedrus, I saw this too. I am confident whatever Ferran Adria comes up with, it will be as revolutionnary as everything else he has done. I'm looking forward to it.
About 5 years ago Ferran did cooperate in writing a book for the home cook, Concinar en Casa.
"The basic idea is a semi home-made of sort, taking common foods from supermarkets and sprucing them up a little. Well, in this particular instance, quite a lot, since these ideas came from that amazing brain of Ferran Adrià. "
I don't have the book, but am familiar with a couple of his ideas, such as using (best quality) potato chips in an tortilla espanola (also promoted by Jose Andres), and sprucing up a grocery rotisserie chicken with dried fruits (which also appears in the New Spanish Table).
