Publisher Comments:

The Family Meal is the first home cooking cookbook by the world's greatest chef, Ferran Adrià. It features nearly 100 delicious recipes by Ferran Adrià that anyone can prepare, inspired by the dishes eaten every day by the staff at his legendary restaurant El Bulli, awarded World's Best Restaurant five times.

The recipes in The Family Meal are easy-to-prepare and meant for family dining at home. From Roast Chicken with Potato Straws, Sea Bass Baked in Salt and Mexican-style Slow-Cooked Pork to White Chocolate Cake and Baked Apples with Whipped Cream, there is a wide selection of everyday classics for every night of the week. The cookbook is also the first by such a renowned chef to ensure that the dishes are affordable and the ingredients are widely available at the local supermarket.

The Family Meal is organized into three-course menus, with appetizers, mains and desserts, so you can prepare a well-balanced meal at home without fuss. Each recipe is shown with numerous step-by-step full-color photographs, and conversions on how you can prepare a meal for a small or large group — for 2, 6, 20 or 75 people.

This is the cookbook by Ferran Adrià everyone has been waiting for, it is sure to be one of the most talked out and popular cookbooks of the season.

Review:

"Adrià  was the master chef behind elBulli, the recently closed Michelin three-star restaurant in Spain, and this collection is his coda: 100 recipes based upon 'family meals' that the eatery's staff would regularly cook up for their group dinners. The entries do not necessarily match the restaurant's menu, but are simple main dishes, sides, and desserts that can work equally well as the basis for a meal for two or a feast for six dozen. Phaidon continues to push the boundaries of cookbook design, and this book employs hundreds of photos and reads like a graphic novel or a collection of the world's most delicious infographics. The book is divided into 31 three-course meals. Meal 10, for instance, is miso soup with clams, mackerel with vinaigrette, and almond cookies, while Meal 28 is melon with cured ham, rice with duck, and chocolate cake. Each meal plan begins with a two-page photo spread of the necessary ingredients accompanied by a list of what is pictured and a time line indicating when to prepare each course. On the next page is the smallest of text boxes offering a hint or two, and adjacent to that are quantity guidelines listing amounts needed to feed 2, 6, 20, or 75 diners. Preparation instructions are nearly entirely photographic, nine photos per page, augmented with thought bubbles of text, creating the impression that, for instance, a plate of ribs is dreaming of being topped with a fine grating of orange zest."

"Deliciously hearty, the recipes in The Family Meal have nothing to do with the avant-garde for which elBulli is known, and the amply illustrated book explains them in an accessible, storyboard form." Financial Times Weekend Magazine
