Looking to buy: Albert Adria - Natura (English)


Recommended Posts

Google couldn't find it for me. Not gonna be devastated if I can't find it but figured it doesn't cost anything to ask. It's just a book missing from my shelf that I wanted but never got around to buying. 

It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

Beware the printed book is only photos, no recipes. If my memory is right the only text is the name of the dish above the photo. Recipes are in a CD-ROM attached to the back-cover, they should be both in Spanish and English. I speak by memory, I saw it when it came out and kept saying "I'll buy it with my next order".

If you can't find it you can try contacting the guys at Kitchen Arts & Letters, also to confirm the CD-ROM has the recipes in English language.

 

You can buy it from the official website:

https://elbullistore.com/en/product/natura/

or from other European vendors, but I suppose that shipping price will cost as much as the book.

Thanks! The El Bulli store is where I'd seen it before but it didn't come up in my search so I thought maybe it had shut down. While I'm not overly concerned with the recipes, I do want it complete with the CD and in English just so reading it is an option. This was one of those books that I really wanted but knew I wouldn't actually use much and it just kinda got pushed back by other books until it slipped my mind.

Edit: The thanks for the link stands, I appreciate it, but I don't think I want the book $185 Canadian bad. Unless I stumble across it somewhere at a much better price, it's spot on the shelf will be filled by something else. :D

You can try contacting this vendor in Canada:

http://librairiegourmande.ca/

maybe you are lucky and they have a copy, or can source one.

Or, as I wrote, Kitchen Arts & Letters in New York. Since it's still in print they should have no troubles to get it, maybe not immediately. But I don't know how much they ask for shipping to Canada.

 

I'm 99% sure the CD-ROM has the English version of all the text. There is no Spanish or English edition, there is only one edition: book with only photos plus the CD-ROM.

I agree with your considerations, that's why I kept postponing buying it. As far as restaurant pastry goes, this is one of the top 5 books to have, so it's a "must" for any serious professional. But it's not a book I'm going to pick up frequently, if ever. The elBulli books (the ones about the restaurant menus) are much much more informative about the creative process, including desserts.
