“Everything new looks strange”

—Ferran Adrià, from this article on his restaurant in The New York Times.

Mr. Adrià is the executive chef of El Bulli, an interesting restaurant experience located outside Barcelona. I’m becoming more and more fascinated with what Adrià and his team are doing there and their experiments in molecular gastronomy. This is the cutting edge stuff in the culinary world.

Anyway, El Bulli is only open a few months each year but will go on a two year hiatus in 2012 and may or may not reopen in 2014.

I love this video produced by photographer William Hereford that blends beautiful cinematography, old French music, delicious recipes, and great typography into a nice little cooking video. The finished product is an interesting video that strangely blends the feeling of photography, magazines, and video into one medium. I’d love to see more of these and producing them for the iPad would make for a great kitchen companion.
