Ferran Adrià headlines Madrid gastronomy event

Catalan chef Ferran Adrià, who is renowned for his groundbreaking work in the world of gastronomy, will headline this year’s International Madrid Fusión Summit, a congress for professionals that opens on 28 January.

Adrià has regularly appeared at Madrid Fusión in the past, but returns this month following a seven-year absence.

He will talk about his latest venture that’s been described as ‘the return of el Bulli‘, his Catalan restaurant that was named the best in the world a record-breaking five times. Although the restaurant itself isn’t set to re-open (it now functions as a creativity centre), Adria has created el Bulli 1846, an innovation laboratory that’s due to be inaugurated this year.
