El Bulli: Cooking In Progress Reviews

Tom Huddleston

For those of us who don't have an deep interest in freeze-drying, 'El Bulli' is astonishingly, sub-'Masterchef' dull.

You leave "Cooking in Progress" with respect for a man who followed his vision, and with fascination at the idea of food as artistic expression.

If you're passionate (and open-minded) about food, you'll be fascinated.

If your idea of fine dining is pumpkin meringue sandwiches, bone marrow tartare with oysters, tea shrimp with caviar anemones, and ice vinaigrette with tangerines and green olive, then by all means make haste to El Bulli.

We're made to marvel at slow-cooked, freeze-dried, unappetizingly bagged food, the way some mushrooms, when delicately sliced, evoke fruit and some crustaceans resemble side-sleeping snooze-bar slappers.

El Bulli becomes a haunting celebration of the human desire to turn food into art - even if the results are consciously insane.

El Bulli barely registers a pulse stronger than a book's.

The flat camerawork and lack of a story beyond the framework of six months in the city lab and six months at El Bulli gives us little to sink our teeth into.

For hardcore foodies, El Bulli offers a clear, unvarnished look at the master at work.

It's a sluggish portrait that neither captures nor replicates the dazzle, pacing and polish of an El Bulli meal. Check, please.

Anyone looking for the lowdown on haute cuisine will be sorely disappointed: devoid of emotion, context or narrative, the baffling avant-garde techniques and extreme politesse of the lab become oppressively dull.
