Chef Spotlight Dinner: Ferran Adria

For this month's Chef Spotlight dinner, we highlighted Spanish Chefs, especially Chef Ferran Adria. He's a well known chef in the industry for what he has accomplished in terms of molecular gastronomy. I chose to highlight Chef Ferran Adria because I've always been intrigued by molecular gastronomy and wanted to share some of my research on how it came about and is known as a trendy cuisine. When researching molecular gastronomy, I found that Ferran Adria, a Spanish chef, made such an impact the world over and chose to highlight his native roots in Spain so friends could embrace Spanish culture as well. Please check out for some great information on Chef Ferran Adria.

Ferran Adria has been called the world's greatest chef. He is certainly one of the most creative. Gourmet magazine referred to Adria as "the Salvador Dali­ of the kitchen". His restaurant, El Bulli, was recently named best restaurant in the world by the prestigious Restaurant magazine. Without a doubt, Ferran Adria will hold a prominent place in culinary history.
