The first-ever biography of Ferran AdriÓ, the chef behind Spain's renowned El Bulli restaurant, by one of the world's foremost food authorities.

Ferran AdriÓ is arguably the greatest culinary revolutionary of our time. Hailed as a genius and a prophet by fellow chefs, worshipped (if often misunderstood) by critics and lay diners alike, AdriÓ is imitated and paid homage to in professional kitchens, and in more than a few private ones, all over the world.

In his lively close-up portrait of AdriÓ, award-winning food writer Colman Andrews traces this groundbreaking chef 's rise from resort- hotel dishwasher to culinary deity, and the evolution of El Bulli from a German-owned beach bar into the establishment voted annually by an international jury to be "the world's best restaurant." With a new afterword for the paperback edition, Ferran brings to life the most exciting food movement of our time and illuminates the ways in which AdriÓ has forever altered our understanding and appreciation of food and cooking.



"An essential biography...about the most creative groundbreaking and important chef of the last decade."
-Anthony Bourdain

"A fascinating portrait that everyone who cares about the evolution of food will want to read."
-Ruth Reichl, author of Tender at the Bone
