Etwa zwei Millionen Reservierungsanfragen pro Jahr hat das wohl berühmteste Restaurant der Welt, das EL BULLI doch am 30. Juli 2011 wird es geschlossen. Verschwindende Ravioli, vakuumierte Champignons und Cocktails aus Wasser und Haselnussöl: Mit seinem einzigartigen Avantgarderestaurant hat der 3-Sterne-Koch Ferran Adrià die moderne Küche revolutioniert und sie auf eine neue Ebene der Kunst, der sinnlichen Ästhetik und nie dagewesener Geschmackserlebnisse geführt. Geöffnet ist das EL BULLI nur sechs Monate im Jahr, die übrige Zeit zieht sich Adrià und sein Team in ein hochmodernes Kochlabor zurück, um hier vollkommen neuartigen Kreationen der Molekularküche zu erschaffen. Ein ganzes Jahr begleitet die Dokumentation EL BULLI COOKING IN PROGRESS den Meister und seine Helfer und zeigt alle Stufen des kreativen Schaffensprozesses: von der ersten Idee, dem Versuchen und dem Verwerfen, dem Zufall und dem Funken Genialität bis hin zur vollendeten, perfekten und einzigartigen Komposition. Faszinierend porträtiert der Film den schöpferischen Akt und führt so die Originalität, die Präzision und die Hingabe bei kreativen Prozessen vor Augen.
Auréolé de ses trois étoiles, Ferran Adrià est considéré comme le chef le plus innovant au monde. Son restaurant, "El Bulli", ferme chaque année pour six mois - le temps pour Adrià et son équipe de se retirer dans leur laboratoire de cuisine à Barcelone pour créer le menu de la saison à venir. Tout est permis... sauf se copier soi-même.

2 lb (1 kg) Canadian Beef Stewing Cubes *
3 tbsp (45 mL) all-purpose flour
3 cloves garlic, minced
1-1/2 cups (375 mL) EACH red wine and beef stock
1 bay leaf
1 tsp (5 mL) dried thyme
1/2 tsp (2 mL) EACH salt and pepper
1. Sauté bacon in Dutch oven or heavy stockpot over medium-high heat until lightly browned. Remove bacon and set aside. Sauté onions and mushrooms in bacon fat until just browned. Remove vegetables and set aside.
2. Brown beef, in two batches and adding some vegetable oil, if necessary. Sprinkle flour over beef.
3. Add garlic, wine, stock, bay leaf, thyme, salt and pepper. Cover and cook in 325°F (160°C) oven for 2 hours. Add reserved bacon, onions and mushrooms; cook for 30 minutes or until onions are tender. Discard bay leaf.

· Beef Brisket, Blade and Short Ribs are best for making Stewing Beef Cubes.
· You can even make the stew the day before and simply reheat it in the slow cooker, oven or microwave – stew actually tastes better when made the day ahead.
For slow cooker, after Step 2, transfer meat to 24-cup (6 L) slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours, adding reserved bacon, onions and mushrooms in final hour.

Kingfisher Bay Surf Resort Mentawai Islands is positioned directly in front of Lances Left, arguably the most consistent wave in the Mentawai Islands.
Kingfisher Bay Resort gives you the opportunity to experience a strikingly original part of the world unlike anywhere you've ever been to or imagined; freakishly perfect waves, a completely unique and fascinating culture with a backdrop of idyllic palm fringed beaches and turquoise waters. As our name suggests, the resort is situated on the edge of an expansive bay, regularly frequented by stunning and acrobatic kingfisher birds, as well as a vast array of other wildlife including majestic sea eagles and large flying squirrels and pristine coral reefs teeming with sea life.
The natural beauty of the Mentawai islands is the stage for what has become a mecca for surfers around the world, and with our dream location in front of Lances Left on the southern tip of Sipora island, those tantalizing and seemingly out of reach fantasies of surfing breathtakingly perfect waves can become a reality!
From your bungalow you will be greeted by the impressive sight of Lances Left, arguably the most consistent world class wave in the mentawai archipelago. The resort is located in an extremely wave rich region with 10 different waves within 20 minutes via boat. With such an extensive selection to choose from; fun beach breaks, long lefts and rights, barrel perfection and heavy slabs, whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced surfer all levels and appetites are catered for here at Kingfisher Bay Resort.
Fishing and snorkeling are catered for as well as a wide and varying range of activities on land. For the culturally curious, the local village provides a window into the lives of a race and people with a very different lifestyle to what most of us are familiar with. Get to know your friendly neighbours and hosts by joining in a woodcarving or weaving lesson under a palm tree or get involved in the daily volleyball match in the village. If all this sounds like too much activity, feel free to relax in a shaded hammock or catch the breeze in our open-planned restaurant where drinks and food are available. Meals are prepared using fresh fruits, vegetables, seafood and meats, cooked in a variety of styles including; Western, Indonesian, Chinese as well as barbeques on the beach. We consider great food and lots of it an integral part of an enjoyable experience, so meals are served buffet style to ensure even the most ravenous appetites will be satisfied.
One of the reasons for the Mentawai islands enduring natural beauty and cultural uniqueness is due to its isolated location about 100 kilometers off the coasts of mainland Sumatera.
In recent years great strides have been made concerning transportation to the islands, however relatively small infrastructure, particularly in terms of accommodating foreign tourists can make traveling by yourself an adventurous though often frustrating journey. With our years of experience we will take out the guesswork and have you arriving at your destination as efficiently and comfortably as possible.
Take the journey and escape the pressures and obligations of daily life and immerse yourself in the island rhythm of a unique and remarkably unspoiled corner of the globe. Join us for a once in a lifetime experience amongst world class waves set in a culturally rich and spectacularly beautiful location. Whether you are looking for adventure, an insight into a completely different culture or simply to relax, you will find it all at Kingfisher Bay Resort. Let us and our ever helpful and smiling staff show you a truly memorable Mentawaian experience in all its remarkable diversity and uniqueness.
“Creativiteit betekent: niet kopiëren”, zo luidt het motto van topkok Ferran Adrià. De film onderzoekt wat dat betekent voor hem en zijn team, het kloppend hart van restaurant El Bulli. In het proces van een eerste experiment tot het uiteindelijke gerecht wordt ieder ingrediënt opnieuw bekeken. Welk nieuw product is er te maken met zoete aardappel? Smaak en textuur worden systematisch geanalyseerd: door te koken, roosteren, bakken, stomen – vacuüm zuigen, opbollen, vriesdrogen – en vervolgens te proeven. Het experimenteren wordt serieus genomen: naast alle kookgerei staat een laptop op het aanrecht, om de geslaagde en de mislukte ideeën bij te houden. En dan is het ineens tijd om het restaurant, dat zes maanden dicht is geweest, te heropenen. 35 nieuwe koks worden aan het werk gezet terwijl chef Adrià nog de laatste hand legt aan de nieuwe gerechten, die op de eerste avond al worden geserveerd. Hier wordt besloten welke vulling er in de ravioli moet, welke pasta er desintegreert bij contact met water en waar de ijsblokjes bij moeten: bij de minisinaasappels of de vacuüm champignons in hazelnotenolie. Bij El Bulli gaat het erom dat je iets voelt, iets ervaart. In de woorden van Adrià: "Hoe meer verwarring, hoe beter."
