Ferran Adrià - What is cooking. The act: cooking. The result: cuisine (Bullipedia)
What is cooking is envisaged as a follow-up to the book Los secretos de El Bulli. This volume is the work of Bullipedia under the direction of Ferran Adrià and employing the Sapiens methodology. Given that cooking is a broad and complex act, there are countless ways of preparing food. This book addresses all these possibilities. With its help, the reader can reflect upon what cooking really involves.
What is cooking is conceived by Bullipedia to offer a holistic view of both the act and process of cooking and its result, cuisine. This work is based on the Sapiens methodology, devised by Ferran Adrià and elBullifoundation through the perspective of systemic thinking. Due to its scope and wide-ranging content, this book will offer the reader an insight into the products, elaborations and cuisines that are addressed in other volumes of this encyclopaedia.
In light of our understanding of the results produced when a combination of products, techniques and tools are allied to an energy source, What is cooking allows us to examine the circumstances of an act that human beings have undertaken since the Palaeolithic Age. To do this, cooking is reviewed from its origins in a search for its limits and an assessment of its possible applications.
Starting from Sapiens premise that a better understanding results from the ordered research of a subject, What is cooking takes the reader through all the facets of this complex and fascinating field. Only in this way, “by giving order to cooking”, can we address the different concepts, elements and characteristics within that reality. The goal of this volume is to outline the infinite possibilities and future innovations open to the world of cooking.
In keeping with the approach of Bullipedia, the focus of this research is directed towards cooking and its place in the tradition of the Western gastronomic restaurant sector. To find an answer to the question stated in the title of this volume necessitates the inclusion of contexts, visions and circumstances that result from opening new perspectives and expanding horizons. For this purpose, we also include actors, eras and scenarios in which cooking adopts meanings beyond those that pertain to gastronomic dining.
