During my trip to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Cleveland I viewed the exhibition Ferran Adrià: Notes on Creativity. On view was a variety of information on the culinary mastermind whose research and cooking techniques declared him “Chef of the Decade” in 2010 by Restaurant Magazine. From sketches to drawings, the work of Adrià illuminated the work of the culinary mastermind. The wall text follows the proceeding image from the exhibition.
