Thanks to following Beijing Boyce, it has come to my attention that Albert Adrià of elBulli will be coming to Beijing with a team of chefs at the end of October.

Now that promises to be a culinary event of awesome proportions – hang the fact that elBulli have Michelin stars coming out of their ears, they have been voted the best restaurant in the world for the past 4 years.

Here are all the deets -but be warned, in the email I was sent from the organiser, he said they’d received 4000 emails just last week alone, so as space is limited I’d get your booking requests in smartish (although it’s not clear if it’s first come first serve).

BTW, the first two events are based on the restaurant’s cook books.

About the event:

Spain’s elBulli has been awarded the title of the World’s Best Restaurant by the prestigious Restaurant Magazine for the past four years, as well as in 2002. Led by manager Juli Solder; Chef Albert Adrià, the “ideologist” of elBulli; and Chef Ferran Adrià, frequently noted as the best chef in the world, elBullli offers the most sought-after dining tables in the world.

This October, celebrating the astounding impact these two culinary craftsmen and their restaurant have had on both Spain’s and the world’s cuisines, Albert Adrià will visit Beijing with his team of chefs to host four unforgettable gastronomic events.

Presenting book and DVD presentations, master classes, Q&A sessions, and meets and greets, together with a final guest-chef dinner, Albert Adrià, ”ideologist” of elBulli in Beijing, will be a must for industry professionals and passionate foodies alike.

So there you have it.  I only count three events, so not sure what the fourth unmentioned one is.  Good luck to anyone wanting to go and I look forward to hearing how it comes off.

Unfortunately I am going to on a mission in North Africa over that week, and won’t be able to attend – so I’m a little gutted as I won’t be going to Spain in the foreseeable.
Here are all the deets – but be warned, in the email I was sent from the organisers, they said they’d received 4000 emails about this last week alone, so as space is limited, I’d get your booking requests in smartish:
