    It was good focusing on pretty much this one restaurant and it's staff they did amazing work and it's always fun when Tony goes back into the kitchen. I don't know how with the economy so bad they are going to do more with an institute instead of a restaurant but I hope it works out for them.

    Oh, with Ferran's great creativity, I am sure it will be succesful. You should never underestimate what someone who does their own thing, and does it well, can do. And do succesfully. I've had the priviledge of dining at el Bulli and it was magnificently marvellous! It is (was) in the middle of nowhere, yet we stood in line for a reservation for forever. For chefs, the new institute will most likely bring chefs from all over.

    It was a good show, a sad show. But like they say, when a door closes, a window opens. Ferran will be a success whatever he does. I am glad the episode showcased Spain and Spanish cooking.

    I always wanted to go to El Bulli but now it is too late. Thanks to Bourdain and the two episodes where El Bulli was featured at least I have a good idea of what I missed. It was one of the best episodes of this season.
