For six months of the year, renowned Spanish chef Ferran Adrià closes his restaurant El Bulli - repeatedly voted the world's best - and works with his culinary team to prepare the menu for the next season. An elegant, detailed study of food as avant-garde art, El Bulli: Cooking in Progress is a rare inside look at some of the world's most innovative and exciting cooking; as Adrià himself puts it, "the more bewilderment, the better!"
