You don't often see Anthony Bourdain in any sort of formalwear on 'No Reservations' (Mondays, 9PM on Travel), not even traditional chef's clothing. So when he appeared in his crisp chef's whites on Monday's episode, it was clear something different was going on. "This is the price I'm paying for being given incredible access to this kitchen and to this man," he said in the voiceover.
The kitchen Bourdain was a guest in belonged to Ferran Adrian, considered one of the world's best chefs at one of the world's best restaurants, El Bulli on Costa Brava in Spain. Bourdain traveled to the restaurant before it closed in July to cook with Adrian, his last chance to do so at El Bulli. The dishes Bourdain assisted with are not the kind of cuisine you're likely to whip up at home.
