REASONS FOR LUST:
Reason #1: Chef Ferran Adria’s famous restaurant, elBulli is treated as a religious experience for foodies who visit.
Reason #2: This beautiful tome is filled to the brim with breathtaking photographs and 30 recipes meant to represent a full elBulli menu.
Reason #3: With the restaurant receiving over 2 million requests for just 8,000 seats per year, this just may be the closest we’ll ever get.
