Your Ticket to elBulli

We reveal the secret to scoring a behind the scenes tour of Ferran Adrià's famed Spanish restaurant.


Published:

If we told you we could get you behind the scenes at elBulli and introduce you to renowned chef Ferran Adrià, what would you do?

If you’re a real food lover, you know this is huge. You will drop anyone and everything, and spend exorbitant amounts of money, for a once in a lifetime opportunity to get inside what has been deemed the most influential restaurant in the world.

Especially when the restaurant – located along the northeastern coast of Spain – was closed in July and will not reopen until 2014 when it will become a foundation to foster culinary research and talent. Especially when the restaurant has recieved more than one million reservation requests each year for only 8,000 available spots.

We’re about to reveal how you can earn a coveted chance to shadow chef Adrià. It is actually very simple to peek into the kitchen; to watch as he and his apprentices learn how to prepare innovative dishes using a concept called molecular gastronomy.

We can get you in.

Except you won’t be able to eat. You’ll have to sit calmly and watch as the cuisine is constructed (or deconstructed, as chef Adrià prefers to call it) right before your eyes. But eating is only part of the allure. For Adrià, it’s more about “the experience.” And you will get a feel for “the experience” by heading to the Cable Car Cinema tonight in Providence for the 6:45 p.m. showing of the documentary El Bulli: Cooking in Progress.

To score a coveted reservation, all you have to do is buy a ticket.

Watch the movie trailer below.
