Chef Albert Adrià wants his restaurants to surprise, stir emotions and, of course, entertain — like any great film. He views each of his dramatically different eateries — an experimental cocktail bar, a taqueria, a vermouth bar, a tapas bar, a Japanese-Peruvian restaurant — as if he is a film auteur experimenting across genres. In 2014, despite being awarded an impressive number of Michelin stars, the extremely modest chef felt that he still had not created his CITIZEN KANE. That is because for more than two decades, he labored as the pastry chef under the leadership of his older brother, head chef Ferran, at elBulli, considered one of the greatest restaurants in history. Now with his newest creative endeavor, Enigma, on the horizon, chef Adrià hopes to finally step out of his brother's shadow and reimagine the entire dining experience from the ground up. Featuring mouthwatering dishes and heightened kitchen drama, CONSTRUCTING ALBERT is an intimate journey through the world of a true culinary visionary.
