“Molecular gastronomy" , “deconstructivist cooking”, “Nouvelle cuisine”.. Since the 90’s Catalonia is the land of a new school of cuisine.
Inspired by the limitless creativity of Ferran Adrià, the idea of this cuisine was, as the Chef of El Bulli was used to described it: “provide unexpected contrasts of flavor, temperature and texture. Nothing is what it seems. The idea is to provoke, surprise and delight the diner…. And to have an experience."
Today this “Nouvelle cuisine” is still alive and strong in Barcelona.
Few chefs, like Jordi Vilà, Carles Abella, are still inspired by the “Texturas” invented by Ferran Adrià..
Others, like Sergi Arola, Romain Fornell, Jordi Artal, Albert Raurich are going others directions more oriented fusion of culture like Mediterranean and Far East cuisine with new techniques…
They all reinvent daily the way we eat…
