Ferran Adrià is coming to Singapore!
The most celebrated name in deconstructivist cuisine Ferran Adrià will be in Singapore from April 22-23 for the World Gourmet Summit this year!
I read on Cuisine Wine & Asia that he won't be cooking but will on 22 April present a 55-minute documentary on "A Day at El Bulli" followed by a Q&A. There are 400 seats (listed as S$48 each) available for this event which will be held at luxury hotel Capella. Somehow that feature story went missing a short while later (so maybe some details are changing), but here is the official WGS press release for more information.
On 23 April, Chef Adrià will talk about the techniques and philosophy behind his progressive cuisine. He will also announce future plans for El Bulli, which he will shut down in 2012 and reopen in 2014 as a 'think tank' to attract the best talent and champion gastronomical creativity.
