Mark Bittman Is the Latest Writer Unable to Come Up With a New Angle for an El Bulli Story
Ferran Adrià must be getting mighty tired of the steady parade of journalists traipsing through his kitchen in the last year. Journalists probably are, too, since it means there's nothing left to say about the restaurant that hasn't already been said. And yet, as El Bulli winds itself down, Mark Bittman pays Adrià a visit, watching him prepare family meal. Even that angle has been done before. But anyway, go ahead and watch it if you're sitting at your desk counting down the minutes before this long weekend will finally be upon us. It's at least mildly funny because Bittman and Adrià try to communicate in bad French, their only common language.
