Ferran Adrià's North American tour

The chef will undertake a five-city author tour to promote the publication of elBulli 2005-2011

Our forthcoming publication, elBulli 2005-2011, is no simple recipe book. The seven-volume set is best described as a catalogue raisonné of this legendary restaurant's final years. It is befitting, then, that elBulli supremo Ferran Adrià should be about to undertake an equally holistic book tour. His five-city trip includes lectures, book signings, drinks receptions, and of course some great food. And don't baulk at some of the ticket prices; they include a copy of this incredible publication. Find out more below.
