Widely celebrated for changing the landscape of gastronomy, renowned chef and restaurateur Ferran Adria (b. 1962, Spain) changed cooking in the same way Salvador Dali changed art. Ferran Adria: The Invention of Food showcases Adria’s culinary work with images of his creations paired with their inspirations from the natural world, creative notebooks elaborating his innovative thinking, and tableware and serve-ware he designed. Dali’s food-inspired paintings and flatware he designed are included in the exhibition.
Museum Director Hank Hine notes, “Adria looked so deeply and experimented so fundamentally with what was possible in creating food, that in a sense, he rediscovered it.”
Ferran Adria: The Invention of Food is organized by The Dali and curated by Dr. William Jeffett, Special Exhibitions Curator of The Dali; with production assistance from Fundación Telefonica and elBullifoundation.
