Eric Asimov on El Bulli
Saying he liked it would be an understatement:
What remains lodged in my memory is the totality — the laughter, the surprise, the moments of discovered deliciousness as each novel presentation unmoored the food from the burden of expectations. I thought back many years, to the look of absolute astonishment and delight on the face of my son Peter the first time he tasted chocolate cake. I think that look was plastered on my face over the course of our five-hour meal.
If that piques your curiosity, Adam Roberts's photographs and videos from his meal at El Bulli are worth a look. And then there's this incredible slideshow of El Bulli and some of its progeny, which is where I got the picture atop this post.
