el bulli 2009 reservations

Remember that the 2009 season goes from mid-June to just before Christmas!

You see, I probably should have read this before I sent off my request for late-April. As a bald, yellow man once said: "D'oh!"

Still no word as yet. They do this every year: taunt me into thinking I might have a place, but then sending me a refusal at the last minute. Oh well, I shouldn't complain really, since we got in on our first attempt a few years ago. I'm just being greedy!

pst. have you tried the Seville restaurant - simply fabulous - but don't tell anyone I told you as I'd hate that to become just as over subscribed. OK - so they don't quite do as up to the moment dishes of Roses but its pretty damned close to perfection nonetheless

I sent my request on the 14th, and haven't heard anything. Maybe no news is good news?

Last year, I received my No, end of November. Good Luck...

What a party pooper (hoping to make El Bulli part of honeymoon in June and haven't heard anything yet).

As late as you receive the e-mail, the chance to get a table increase. But....

Has anybody heard or received any acceptance e-mails from El Bulli? Just wondering when they would be sending those out.

I Had a great meal in 2007, and told Luis how thankful we were. He spoke of a tedious process with little sleep (reservations). Ill keep requesting though. I do find it nice that a formal response is given considering the thousands of emails that must come mid October for 8000 or so seats.

In for 2 on June 24th.

Did you only just receive this confirmation, or did you get it a while ago? I received my rejection email log ago, but my partner has yet to receive any response, so I'm hoping they just haven't got round to sending the confirmation to her!

I sent in a request on the 15 on october, and I was very excited when rejection time came and I didnt receive anything. But now that some people have gotten acceptance letters and I havent gotten anything, Im getting really worried.

According to the 2007 thread, quite a bunch of people got theirs on 5th december, so my fingers are still crossed

      Has anybody tried making a dark roux in a pressure cooker? Can this be done without scortching do you think? I have made roux in the oven before and started wondering about this topic.
    • By kostbill
      I really want to improve the flavor of my chicken breast so I want to try to inject brine with fat and flavors.
       
      I would like to try brining with some hydrocolloids. The one example I found is this: https://torontofoodlab.com/2013/08/20/meat-tenderizing-with-a-carrageenan-brine/.
       
      However I cannot apply that to my chicken breast because I am cooking it sous vide, so the chicken will not reach the temperature needed for the carrageenan to gel.
       
      I am thinking of using Methyl cellulose, first disperse in hot water, then leave it for 24 hours in the fridge, then add salt, fat and flavors and inject it.
      I am afraid that until it reaches the 50C or 60C that the Methyl cellulose needs in order to gel, the liquid will escape.
      Any ideas?
      Thanks.

      Thanks for putting up this forum 🙂
      I would like to bake using a combination of sous vide and a conventional oven. Would it be possible to put the dough in a vacuum bag cook it sous vide at 37C for the dough to raise optimal and then put it in a conventional oven?
      Thanks

      Warm Onion Bavarois
      * 300g Sweet Onion purée
      * 250g Whole milk
      * 150g Whipping cream
      * 150g Chicken stock (or fresh vegetable nage, not stock cubes)
      * 3.5g Gellan gum
      * Seasoning
      Lightly grease with vegetable oil the moulds you intend to use (darioles, ramekins etc) and set to one side.
      In a pan (but not on the heat), whisk together all the ingredients.
      Place on a medium heat and whisk continuously, the mix will start to thicken slightly. Carry on whisking for a further 3-4 minutes when it has started to bubble. Then quickly pour into the greased moulds & chill.
      To reheat for serving, just place the ramekin in a pan of water and simmer gently for 8-10 mins.
