Ferran Adrià goes back to school for his new restaurant

A Day at el BulliFerran Adrià  is one of the most accomplished chefs in the world. Aspiring chefs study his cookbooks and vied for coveted stage positions, hoping to learn from one of the best in the industry. However, before he opened his new restaurant called Condividere, in Turin, Italy, Adrià felt it necessary to go back to school

Condividere (which means ‘to share’ in Italian)  is located at the headquarters of Italian coffee producer Lavazza. Adrià and local chef Federico Zanasi delved into the history of Italian cuisine to develop the menu at the restaurant. To prepare, both chefs studied the region’s food heritage at the University of Gastronomic Sciences of Pollenzo, just south of Turin.

Adrià says Condividere will “offer a way of understanding gastronomy that places the focus on man and his need to be in company, to share, and his search for quality and love of food.” The restaurant is scheduled to open June 8; let’s keep our fingers crossed that another cookbook from the location will be forthcoming.
