elBulli Foundation Cinema

There is no limitation on imagination and this why I love Ferran Adria. His plans for the future are incredible he is not only the best chef in the world but the most generous. He has shared everything with everone and he is stretching  possibilities and imagination to infinity.

The first time I met Ferran Adria was an accident in Barcelona.

I was walking and someone bumped right into me. I was startled then I could not believe my eyes…it was Ferran.

I was even more startled as I have the highest regards for this person through his work for many years and there he was bumping into me in the middle of busy Barcelona. I could not believe it. I am incredibly shy and would never talk to someone, but could not help myself and taped him on the shoulder as he was about to walk on and I literally crossed my self in christian fashion completely spontaneously and said Oh my god I am a very devoted person to your work. He was with a group of people and they could see my sincere overwhelming experience and seemed to find my response endearing and we were laughing together.

This was the most magical encounter for me. To bump like this together with the best chef in the world is no short of a miracle.

I am not christian at all, however it was as If I was meeting God. God is a creatieve force and this is exactly what Ferran is. He is one of the most an incredible creative forces alive.

He is currently busy with so many projects you can go to the elbulli website to see.

Below is the elbulli foundation plans of a cinema and space for brainstorming. All the info is from the elbulli website and VIMO:
