elBulli, the story of a dream

“elBulli, historia de un sueño” relata la increíble historia de cómo Ferran Adrià, un muchacho de humildes raíces y sin interés por la cocina, se convierte en el chef más influyente y en uno de los pensadores más controvertidos de nuestra época. Su mítico restaurante elBulli cambió para siempre la manera en que comemos, y es pionero en el diálogo entre gastronomía, arte, diseño y ciencia.

elBulli: Cooking in progress

Every winter, when the restaurant season came to an end, Ferran Adrià, widely considered as the best, most innovative chef in the world, would lock himself away in elBullitaller, his workshop in Barcelona, surrounded by his team of collaborators. There they would work on the creation of a completely redesigned menu for the forthcoming restaurant season, a menu that consisted of entirely new, original dishes. The documentary shows this laborious process of creation for the first time.

Las huellas de elBulli

This documentary traces the gastronomic legacy of Ferran Adrià and his team, highlighting the wide scope of its influence: from kitchens in countries as far away as Japan, to the international hospitality industry and globally successful TV show formats. It then turns its focus to reveal the impact that, even today, is exerted on the fields of art, economics, science and sport by a  small restaurant nestling in a remote cove of the Costa Brava.
