Meet the Author

Ferran Adria was born in Barcelona. While his parents were not connected to the culinary world, in his home there was always a marked interest in everything related to food. In 1980, Adria left school and found a job as a dishwasher and was introduced to classic cooking. He held positions at various Barcelona restaurants until landing at the prestigious Finisterre, where he worked until he began his military service in the navy in Cartagena. There he was part of the captain general's kitchen staff and was, for the first time, fully in charge of a kitchen. In 1983, he interned at El Bulli and shortly thereafter was offered the position of "chef de partie." From that moment onward, his life has been unequivocally linked to El Bulli. The restaurant has earned unanimous recognition as an important linchpin in the gastronomic world, and Ferran Adria is considered to be one of the world's great chefs. He lives in Spain.
