ElBulli’s Ferran Adrià is set to open a new restaurant designed and conceptualized by him in the Italian city of Turin this summer.
Name of the restaurant is Condividere, meaning ‘sharing’, will offer Italian haute cuisine, served in a sharing style – no tasting menus – with a menu that takes the Italian family Sunday lunch as its inspiration.
Chef Federico Zanasi will oversee day to day kitchen operations. He has worked under Moreno Cedroni and at Relae in Copenhagen.
“We wanted to bring something new to Italian gastronomy – a gastronomy that has already offered thousands of ideas. It was going to be difficult. Opening a restaurant is the most difficult thing to do in the world,” Adrià told Food and Wine at a special event to launch the project.
Adrià has a number of interesting projects underway currently, including Bullipedia, a 35-volume food encyclopedia to be drip released over the next four years, and elBulli 1846, a cooking and research centre, which will be constructed.
Condividere opens 8 June.
