El Bulli: Cooking in Progress

I can not wait to see this. It is playing at The Ken Theater until Thursday so better check it out while you can. I know I am going to. Here is the official website.
Revolutionary Spanish eatery El Bulli is a Michelin three-star restaurant in Roses, Spain (two hours northeast of Barcelona); each night, it serves a tasting menu of 30+ courses, prepared by over 40 chefs, to a single seating of up to 50 guests. For the current season, its last before transforming into a culinary academy, over two million requests were received for the 8,000 available seats. Head chef Ferran AdriĆ , who took over the restaurant in 1987 and instituted the tradition of yearly developmental sabbaticals, has become the leading inspiration for avant-garde cuisine worldwide, alternately referred to as a mad scientist or Salvador Dali of the kitchen.
The movie that will bring us inside El Bulli, and we don't have to travel to Spain.
El Bulli, Cooking in Progress = inspiring.
