The Sorcerer's Apprentices: A Season in the Kitchen at Ferran Adrià's elBulli

The Sorcerer's Apprentices: A Season in the Kitchen at Ferran Adrià's elBulli - Lisa Abend I'd never heard of elBulli before reading this book. It didn't make me want to take the next plane to Spain so I could eat there. I can kinda understand the motivation to work somewhere free for 6 months, but I couldn't get into the feeling here. It seemed too precious, too twee (the restaurant, not the book). The book had a solidly journalistic feel, and was well done, but I just couldn't get interested in the story because the food didn't sound good.
