The Family Meal
Ferran Adrià with Eugeni de Diego
The Family Meal – Home cooking with Ferran Adrià, has been lovingly compiled by one of the world’s most influential chefs about one of the world’s most influential meals – the dishes prepared for the staff of Ferran’s legendary El Bulli restaurant. Every day at 6pm, Ferran’s team stopped what they were doing to sit down to eat a three-course dinner together known as their ‘family meal’. Generously illustrated with hundreds of new, specially commissioned photographs, the Family Meal
is a reference book for all who love good cuisine.
But behind the mouth-watering recipes, one of the reasons for it’s worldwide success are the clear graphics, and unpretentious instructions, giving a surprising rhythm to the presentation, much as the meals of El Bulli were noted for. Even if you do not cook anything from this book, it is a delicious pleasure for the eyes.
