A Barcelona food blog
Whilst the doors of his El Bulli restaurant may have closed for good, I continue to be fascinated by chef Ferran Adrià and his creations. So, it was with excitement that I read in El Periodico last month of an exhibition dedicated to his work.
Having clearly not fully understood or having hastily read the Spanish article I jumped on my Bicing and headed up to the Palau Robert, only to be informed that I would have to wait until the end of the year before I could enjoy this homage.
It now appears that it’ll be early 2012 before I get to enjoy this exhibition which celebrates everything the genius and his hard working team of unpaid chefs have achieved in the bay of Roses. I also wish I was a student or catering trainee in Catalonia during the period of the show as they will also benefit from additional tours and lectures. Exact dates don’t appear to have been published yet, but more information about the exhibition can be found here and I will post dates as I become aware of them.As an aside, the Palau Robert offers some excellent exhibitions so check them out if you happen to be passing or visiting another of their offerings and don’t miss a few minutes sit down and contemplation in the courtyard behind the main building.
