Ferran Adria (Ferrán Adrià) and the Mediterranean Diet

Ferran Adria is probably the best chef in the World
Ferran Adria is the best chef in the World. His Restaurant, the Bulli has been the best in 2002, 2006 and 2007. A big part of his dishes are based on the Mediterranean Diet.
“Ask Ferran Adria and he will agree that a piece of plain fish, freshly caught and grilled to perfection can be as pleasing to taste as the elaborate invention of the cleverest chef. ‘Eating well is something you can do at home. The point about what we offer is that it is more than eating; it is an experience,’ says Adrià, who in one of his books has defined eating at El Bulli as a night out at the theatre. ‘What’s radical about us rests not on what we serve, but on how and where. In the West, where the problem of hunger has been solved, where obesity is now the issue, the trend has to be more and more about the pleasure of eating, the fun, rather than seeing it as simply a way of satisfying our appetites. At El Bulli we try and take this idea to the nth degree.”
