Ferran + Albert Adria to open casual resto in Barcelona in October


Recommended Posts

I am trying to come to grips with folks' obsession with 41.

Thanks for the write up, good reading. I don't know if you really want answers for the rhetoric but I'll bite in a sense of discussion. I guess on my part it's for the exact same reasons you've picked out in your post I want to go 41 Degrees, namely Adria food, the night turned over to the chefs and the sense that the place is trying to do something more than just serve food on a table.

Why one over the other? It's just a case of trying the most varied amount of dishes. Would love to go Tickets too, but trying to get a booking lined up for both at the same time would prove near impossible I imagine. Surely you're at least intrigued to try it out if Tickets is your idea of restaurant heaven? Your post was more passionate than most I read on here, I can't imagine loving work by anyone who creates and not wanting to experience what else they've done.

As for the serious tone, they list the soundtracks to Delicatessen and Amelie on the restaurants play list, I hardly reckon this is going to be El Bulli. Sure it could be called an obsession staying up to get a booking for a restaurant, but what makes that any different to concert/theatre tickets.

Anyway I managed to get a date in the end for a few weeks time, no blogging, no banker to show off to, just the experience and a maybe a 42nd course of Viagra if the Mrs is willing after all that food...

Looking to get a reservation for either Tickets or 41 for a trip in July. I know that Tickets reservations start 2 months in advance. 41 claims 90 days on their online booking page, but they also say 100 seats, so I'm not inclined to believe that information very much. And someone below said they were releasing for April in Mid-March? Does anyone have any solid information? Is there a specific time of day tickets are released? I'd read 12 am in one place, i'm seeing 12 pm below... any tips?

      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.

      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 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?

      Olla podrida sous vide
      Not rotten pot, but mighty or rich pot! Originated in 16th century Spain, olla poderida became olla podrida and was falsely translated into French as pot-pourri.
      For two servings
      * 100g Brisket well marbled, cooked SV 48h/55°C, large dice †
      * 100g Pork meat well marbled, cooked SV 24h/55°C, large dice †
      * 100g Lamb chops without bone, cooked SV 4h/55°C, large dice †
      * 100g Chicken breast, cooked SV 2h/58°C, large dice †
      * 100g Chorizo, sliced approximately 4mm †
      * 125g Chickpeas (garbanzos), soaked overnight in water †
      * 1 Onion chopped medium-fine †
      * ½ Savoy cabbage approx. 200g cut into pieces, thick leaf veins removed
      * ½ Celeriac approx. 200g quartered, sliced about 2mm
      * 2 Carrots sliced approximately 120g about 3mm
      * 1 Leek approximately 20cm / 100g sliced about 5mm
      * Extra virgin olive oil
      * Rice bran oil
      * Dried parsley qs, aromatic, black pepper
      † Beef, pork, lamb and chicken (or at least two kinds of meat) as well as chorizo, chickpeas and onions are mandatory ingredients, other vegetables vary according to desire and availability.
      Boil chickpeas in water for 30-60 min.
      Sauté onions in olive oil, add chorizo, continue sautéing, add chickpeas including its cooking water, add remaining vegetables, cover and cook to the desired softness, stir from time to time. If additional liquid is needed, you may add Sherry instead of water.
      Reduce heat. Season to taste. Add parsley.
      In a heavy skillet, sear the meat dice in just smoking hot rice bran oil (very high smoking point allows very quick sear, not overdoing the center of the meat).
      Sear one kind of meat at a time and transfer to the pan with the vegetables.
