Ferran Adria Takes Two-year Break from the Kitchen

According to The Daily Telegraph, worldly renowned chef, Ferran Adria, has announced that he was closing El Bulli at the end of 2011 and was thinking about what to do next. Also, he implied he may not come back to the kitchen for good. I was really surprised and it was sad to hear that. Visiting Spain to dine at El Bulli is one of my gastronomic dreams. I saw his demonstration at Tokyo Taste, the World Summit of Gastronomy in 2009. He said that he has gained great insights from Japanese cuisine. I hope he comes to Japan sometime again to show off his great work. The article also said that he may work on several culinary projects—including one at Harvard University, which once he had been invited and signed an agreement with the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences(!!!) His innovations were also taught at the business school. Degree in gastrochemistry?
