Ferran Adria and some of New Yorks Foodie Celebs


Ferran, Interpreter and Andrew Coleman

Me and Ferran!
Last night was almost surreal.  I was invited by Nils Noren from the International Culinary Institute in New York to attend an evening with Ferran Adria and Andrew Coleman to talk about Ferran's biography.  Besides having the priviledge of being in such an intimate presentation of this genius, there was also the food elite of New York in the same room.  Mario Batali, Jose Andres, Jaques Torres, Danial Boulard, editor of Art Culinaire, New Yorks top food bloggers and journalists.  I cannot explain how excited I was. Ferran was so inspiring and revealed insights and truths about the famous El Bulli and what holds for the future.  i will be posting the transcript of the evening as it is inpirational for anyone involved in creativity and innovation.  I will be buying the book tomorrow and if you are interested in a genius of our day, i would reccommend you read it too.

Other highlights from yesterday was Magnolia Bakery (the Cupcake trend started here with Sex&the City) The cupcake trend is definatly not going anywhere.  Every shop, street food vans, food halls and coffee shops all have a cupcake. 

The other hightlight of today was Carnegie Deli.  Famous for its Pastrami Sandwich which is truly amazing and rather large ( i could only manage half).  Apparently it also has the best New York Cheese cake.  I couldnt manage it but will try return tomorrow to try it out.  Oh, i saw my first Celeb, Mr T from the A-Team.

Brooklyn awaits tomorrow; pizza, coffee and Bakeries!
