- who is he, and how did he become such an influential chef on the international stage, winning "Best Restaurant in the World" for an unprecedented four years running?
Without any formal culinary training, Ferran built elBulli into a three Michelin-starred restaurant, with over two million reservation requests received for only 8,000 dining places. How did a cook in the military service get to where he is today?
Reinventing Food, Ferran Adrià: The Man Who Changed The Way We Eat is the first-ever biography of Ferran Adria, written by award-winning food writer Colman Andrews, Saveur co-founder, James Beard Foundation Award-winner and long-time friend of Ferran.
