The Tiff Bell Lightbox will be showing the film El Bulli: Cooking in Progress August 5th. I saw it at the Hot Docs Festival and it was a fascinating study of what drives Ferran Adria. They also showed the wonderful film about Florent whose closing I still weep and wail about. Do you think we can encourage them to do a festival about great food, chefs, the best eats around the world?

    I also saw it and enjoyed it... It isn't a very typical documentary in the sense is that there is no narration, no real "story", etc... it is really an observation of the process, you feel like you are looking in through a window. While I liked it and most people here would probably enjoy it, some people may just find it boring so keep that in mind if inviting non foodie friends (and even foodie friends who aren't into the "visuals"

      Loved the book with the step by step. Wondering if the good folk at the venue would take up the old player piano ethos and put up some cooking smells with a good fan. That would be nice.

        The resurgence of "Smell - O - Vision" starts now.

          I think that might just make me too hungry to concentrate of the film!
