El Bulli exhibition at Somerset House


Regardless of if you’re a foodie or not, most people recognise the name El Bulli. The world famous Spanish restaurant closed last summer but at the moment you can learn all about the concept at London’s Somerset House.

The exhibition tells the tale about how the restaurant became the huge success it was. How it all started in the 1960s and carried on through the decades. It is a modern exhibition with plenty of interactive screens and moving pictures but it also features old photographs and memorabilia.

It teaches us about nouvelle cuisine and how El Bulli implemented it into its cooking, how chef Ferran Adrià and his team planned and researched their dishes and what techniques they used. Why the restaurant is named after a dog and about future plans.


I thoroughly enjoyed the whole exhibition but the short clip about the restaurant’s last ever service in July 2012 stayed with me the longest.

El Bulli: Ferran Adrià and the Art of Food is on until 29 September 2013. Admission £10. More infomation here.

Footnote: This is not a sponsored post; I paid for my own ticket but I thought the exhibition was so interesting I wanted to share it with you.
