EL BULLI: COOKING IN PROGRESS is a revealing look inside the kitchen of renowned Spanish chef Ferran Adrià that Film Threat calls "an insider look at something very few have ever had the pleasure of experiencing." Located in Catalonia, Spain, Adrià's restaurant - El Bulli - closes for six months each year while Adrià and his team of culinary experts prepare a fresh, surprising menu for the next season. Not content just to offer the same menu, Adrià's approach involves a scientific level of research and development to offer a variety of dishes that have never been experienced before. Filmmaker Gereon Wetzel goes "behind the scenes" of the kitchen for an exciting glimpse into the creative process of the culinary arts, exploring the methods and approaches that go in to creating the perfect menu. Over the course of the six months, Adrià pushes himself and his team to create new recipes, always innovating and never repeating themselves, and to deliver a 30-course menu that his guests will never forget. From the inception of new recipes, through experimentation and creation, EL BULLI: COOKING IN PROGRESS gives audiences the chance to experience the process behind the wide tapestry of cuisine developed each year at El Bulli by master chef Ferran Adrià. As Adrià himself puts it, "the more bewilderment, the better!"moreless
