Another day another dollar!
Just saw a notice go up on the event curating site Sosh about a new exhibit that just opened up at the Drawing Center in SoHo, NY featuring the personal notes of Ferran Adria, the mad man behind “el Bulli“, regarded as one (if not THE) top restaurant in the world for many years now. The exhibit is only open for about a month and admission is only $5 for adults (free on Thursdays from 6 to 8 PM…unless you’re an accountant like me in which case, good luck going then).
You can check out more details here.
For the uninitiated, Adria is a big name in the restaurant world especially in the fields of avant garde cuisine and molecular gastronomy. He’s collaborated with Harvard in putting together the hit Food & Science Lectures (here’s one from 2012). If you’ve got some time to kill, I’d recommend watching one. Some are dryer than others but they’re def a mindfu*k for hardcore foodies out there. If you’re looking for something a little less…”science-y” though and you’ve got a Netflix account, watch the movie “el Bulli: Cooking in Progress” for a glimpse into his creative, and sometimes downright absurd – I mean…who the hell thinks of making ravioli where the casing is some sort of plastic and the filling is oil? – thinking.
For those in NY looking to go but who’s friends would rather watch football games than stare at some guy’s scribblings, leave a comment below and we’ll commiserate!
