Although some critics and fellow chefs deride Adrià as the pretentious mad scientist of the food world, this documentary shows why he is so praised by more open-minded critics. This special is hosted by Anthony Bourdain, who previously was skeptical of Adrià, and downright hostile to the role of the laboratory in the science of food. The DVD shows Bourdain's coming to terms with Adrià's radical culinary concepts, and his ultimate embracing of them. From carrot foam to liquid nitrogen, Adrià is definitely a futuristic surreal kitchen firebrand, and Bourdain is the perfect guy to get him to talk about his science and art.
Although the DVD is expensive, it's worth it for a glimpse into one of the most amazing minds ever to step into a kitchen: I highly recommend it.
molecular gastronomy, Chef Adria is the Mr. Wizard of food science, and
he and his crew seem to love their work in the state-of-the-art laboratory where they spend half of each year experimenting with new concepts. Anthony Bourdain is the perfect host to take us through the three-hour dinner that shows off the results of their research. The beginning is a little slow, but
there is nothing quite like this restaurant, and this was a great way to
see what all the fuss is about.
