Why it's so great: Once upon a time, a Michelin three-star restaurant named elBulli sat perched on a rocky cliff in Catalonia, Spain. There, a food wizard named Ferran Adrià and his loyal team of chefs weaved their culinary sorcery to produce unprecedented, purely scientific dishes, such as pine nut marshmallows, steamed brioche with rose-scented mozzarella, rock mussels with seaweed and fresh herbs, and passion fruit trees. Like all magical things, the restaurant was short-lived and closed in 2011. This book describes 24 hours in the life of elBulli. A perfect here's-your-late-Christmas-present gift!
