About Albert and Ferran Adrià

Albert and Ferran Adrià, spirit and soul of restaurant elBulli, can certainly be considered the most well-known brothers in the world of gastronomy.

For many, elBulli is considered a before-and-after of modern cuisine, not only for the creation of innumerable elaborations and techniques, but also for its philosophy and values such as creativity, passion, challenge, and humility, which have always defined the way Albert and Ferran work. The Adrià brothers are also known for their willingness to communicate and spread recent developments in gastronomy through their participation in conferences, projects and books.

Over the years, elBulli has been an incubator for some of the foremost chefs in modern gastronomy. Rene Redzepi, Andoni Aduriz, Joan Roca, Grant Achatz, José Andrés andMassimo Bottura are among the most eminent of the more than 2,000 trainees that have completed an internship at elBulli over the years.

Aside from their projects as a team, Albert and Ferran are currently working on personal projects. The year elBulli closed its doors, Albert embarked on the BCN5.0 project withTickets, the first in a series of five concepts (culminating in 2016 with project Enigma), all located in el Paralelo, one of the most celebrated neighbourhoods of Ciudad Condal.

Ferran is fully committed to the development of elBulli Foundation, the evolution of what was once elBulli. This project is meant to create a physical and digital archive of the restaurants’ legacy and creativity as well as to serve as a learning center for knowledge sharing and acquisition.
