ElBulli was undoubtedly the most controversial and experimental 3-star Michelin restaurant in the world and Ferran Adrià – the chef who earned elBulli its worldwide fame – has been acclaimed as the best chef in the world. Ferran and his team at elBulli were the first to employ an industrial designer as part of their creative team. Luki Huber was that industrial designer and he spent from 2002 until 2005 at elBulli working exclusively hand-in-hand with Ferran charged with inventing new ‘artifacts’ used either to prepare, cook, serve or perform Adrià’s unique culinary techniques.
Luki kept all his drawings, sketches and beautiful photographs from this collaboration and they are brought together for the first time in this amazing notebook, with all the explanations of the purpose and stories behind every object. The book has a prologue and introduction from Ferran Adrià, and is a must for all devotees of this extraordinary chef and his restaurant. The results of his work with elBulli combining the rigors of gourmet cuisine and the innovations of industrial design have been exhibited in the Pompidou Centre in Paris.
