Most may never have had the fortune to experience gastronomic innovations of Spain’s elBulli – the world’s best restaurant – first hand, but that doesn’t mean that aspiring chefs and amateurs of molecular cuisine can’t attempt to recreate some of their most famous dishes themselves. elBulli 2005-2011 consists of a seven volume collection of recipes spanning elBulli’s final years as a restaurant, featuring the 700 inventive recipes developed during this period. Each dish is captured photographically and descriptively in great detail, with notes on making individual components, finding ingredients, and perfecting presentation. The final volume focuses on the creative process behind the development of each recipe and the secrets of elBulli, forever closed, at least as an eatery.
