Ferran Adria on the internet

This is pretty interesting. El Bulli for the home cook?

    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).

      The current issue of Vanity Fair has an article on Adria along this same line:

          The link worked for me.

          Very cool BTW. Thanks for posting, Phaedrus. Looking forward to seeing it up and running.

          I'm wondering though whether the site will wind up being in Spanish or in English. Damn all that useless French I learned in school.

          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.
