About the Author

Ferran Adrià joined the staff of elBulli in 1984 and rapidly progressed to become head chef. Famous for his pioneering culinary techniques, he has been applauded - and imitated - around the world, and won three Michelin stars for elBulli, along with many other accolades. Since elBulli's closure in 2011, Ferran lectures internationally and has developed the elBullifoundation, a culinary academy and think tank on the site of the former restaurant.


"The Family Meal shows that the chef who put [elBulli] on the map knows very well how to appeal to the everyday home chef and to the tastes of the discerning palate. "--Energy Times

"Wonderful. . . good straightforward cooking. "- Mark Bittman--The New York Times

"This is the type of traditional food Ferran loves. "--Jeffrey Steingarten, VOGUE

"The recipes make you taste an everyday food in an entirely new way."--Julia Moskin, The New York Times

"Simple, deceptively elegant recipes . . .it's manna from the maestro for home cooks, both novice and notable."--BookPage

"Proves accessible even to novice cooks...Adria's fame and revolutionary style make this a defining cookbook."--BooklistStarred Review

"I've never been so excited about such a simple [Noodle Soup with Mussels]: cooking and eating it crystalized what is unique and wonderful about Mr. Adria's book. . . I learned an enormous amount about cooking from a master of the trade. "--Katy McLaughlin, The Wall Street Journal

"I can't stop cooking from this book . . . The only downside is that I had to come to terms with splotching grease on its lovely pages."--The Atlantic

"Even if you're more comfortable navigating cobblestone streets in platforms than wielding a microplane in the kitchen, this book will show even the most harried and clueless of cooks how to prepare a simple dinner at home. And, as an unexpected bonus, it will also be a meal that will forever impress guests. "

"Adria . . . teaches kitchen basics (egg poaching, anyone?) and delivers simple, delicious recipes meant for the daily table. "--People

"A gem of a cookbook packed with fantastic recipes and tips from the master. The closest most readers will come to eating with him. "--Kirkus Reviews Starred Review

"The idea of El Bulli at home sounds far-fetched, but you can cook the restaurant's staff meals easily- without the foam. The step-by step visual recipes are precise but playful."--Bon AppÃ(c)tit
