Ferran Adrià’s The Family Meal, brings to light some of the daily meals that were shared amongst El Bulli’s staff. It doesn’t bamboozle with off-key ingredients, or tools that are only found in Michelin stared restaurants. Instead it shows you how to cook delicious food, without any pretense or bullshit. To make life super simple, it provides story boards that illustrate each mouth watering step in creating the book’s 31 menus.
Adrià provides his essential list of tools and ingredients to stock your fridge-freezer, cupboards and drawers; it shows you how to make essentials like stocks and make your ingredients and meals go further. Quite simply it demystifies what’s often considered complex, and helps its readers create delicious meals for around £2.50 a head – Sainsbury’s, this is called Living Well for Less.
