The legendary Spanish restaurant elBulli may have closed on July 30, 2011, but its magic lives on through the chefs it trained, many of them considered among the world's best, and the elBulliFoundation.
The foundation, which will be launched in March 2015, will focus on three things, chef Ferran Adria said in an interview with Efe.
"El Bulli 1846, in Cala Montjoi (Girona), where the history of the restaurant will be shown. Bullipedia, an archive of the knowledge of the history of the kitchen, and the creative team of elBulli DNA, which will release all its work over the Internet," Adria said.
The goal is to continue "providing new things to gastronomy," Adria, the father of the technical-conceptual kitchen and the world's most profiled chef, said.
The foundation's mission is to "share the spirit of elBulli with the world - freedom, passion and risk are adjectives that were considered a sin before and are now positive and not questioned by anyone," Adria said.
"More than 2,000 cooks passed through (elBulli's kitchen) over its history, including many of the chefs currently considered among the best in the world," such as Joan Roca, Andoni Luis Aduriz, Heston Blumethal and Rene Redzepi, Adria said. EFE
