World's Most Expensive Cookbook


It's by Ferran Adrià of El Bulli Restaurant in Roses, Spain, two hours north of Barcelona on the Costa Brava.

Many believe El Bulli to be the single best restaurant in the world.

The book (above), entitled "El Bulli 1998–2002," contains details of the development, philosophy and techniques behind the recipes along with many color photographs.

But wait — there's more.

Along with the main volume in the boxed set you get a detailed User's Guide and an interactive CD containing each recipe.

The cookbook, published last month, measures 13" x 10" x 2.5", weighs 9.7 pounds and contains 496 pages.

The book retails for $350 but amazon sells it for $220.50.

Just make sure you bring your computer to the kitchen to get the full flavor.

I just got back from dinner at elBulli and picked up a copy that Ferran Adria signed for me. You're going to need that computer in the kitchen because all the recipes are on the cd, not in the book!

Spanish food is delicious, but for Italian cuisine, may I recommend Chef Mario Batali's latest book: Molto Italiano.
