I wasn't necessarily expecting Blumenthal's ridiculously theatrical flourishes in El Bulli, but a little joy or wonder would have been nice. Instead, we are treated to visuals of lots of pretty looking food, eaten stoically by [Chef] Adria.
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.
You can't help but appreciate the food's visual beauty -- and the physical, mental and emotional energy that went into creating it -- but you don't come away feeling you have to taste any of AdriÓ's food before you die.
