Ravioli Que Se Va - elBulli1846
elBulli dish no 1628 from 2009.
The rise of molecular gastronomy introduced the possibility of playing with our senses and the mind’s constant attempts to always make sense of things. This is the iconic Vanishing Ravioli, filled with pine nut praliné and roasted pine nuts - to be dipped in a pinecone infusion. Dip just for a second (or you might miss it.)
Technique: The disappearing transparent ravioli are made with round oblate, ultra-thin, and transparent edible film discs made of potato starch and soy lecithin that instantly dissolve as they get in contact with water - but not with oil or fat!

ALCHEMIST X EL BULLI X ENIGMA
My words certainly won’t do justice to the experience we had at @restaurantalchemist a few days ago when they hosted a truly once in a lifetime collaboration with Ferran and Albert Adria representing @elbullifoundation_ferranadria and @enigma_albertadria . Original El Bulli dishes, carefully selected from their legacy of 1846 dishes, were served alongside many dishes from Enigma and Alchemist that are a direct result and evolution from Ferran’s work all those years ago. It was really something to see these dishes using techniques that we all now take for granted, and realise just how cutting edge they were at the time and how incredibly influential they have been on chefs today, many without even realising it. The only chef and restaurant that could have pulled off such an event was the new barer of this culinary torch, Alchemist and @rasmusmunkalchemist . With El Bulli being the fire that lit Rasmus’s ambition to become one of the true greats and one of a very rare few to be truly pushing the culinary boundaries, and in ways that will hopefully help the planet in countless ways going forward.

Alchemist: “It is a great responsibility to even try to convey the legacy of elBulli, a restaurant so monumental and revolutionary that it changed the world of gastronomy forever. We are so touched that we were entrusted with the task.”
