The Rumours are true:
Ferran Adrià is visiting Vancouver
to celebrate new collection of books 


We are thrilled to announce an unforgettable opportunity to meet Spanish chef Ferran Adrià, formerly of elBulli Restaurant (opened in 1964, closed in 2011 to become a culinary academy). We’ve all heard about this famous restaurant - named the world’s best for five years - and now we have the incredible experience of celebrating the release of Adrià’s new seven volume collection of books, elBulli: 2005-2011 with the man himself.

Our celebrations will take place at The Vancouver Club, where we will host two events on Saturday, March 8: a Cava Reception and Lecture, followed by an intimate and lavish Afterparty for 30 guests. We are proud to present to you the following diverse and very talented chefs who will be preparing the food for both the opening reception and afterparty:  Angus (Maenam), Frank (Blue Water Cafe), Hidekazu (Tojo's), Scott (Pear Tree), Sean (Vancouver Club), Thomas (Thomas Haas Chocolates and Patisserie), and Vikram (Vij's).

To sign up for either one of these events, please call 604-688-6755.

If you are unable to attend these events, but would still like a copy of this historic collection of books, you may pre-order one here.


The Cava Reception and Lecture,

Ticketholders for both the Lecture and Afterparty will be welcomed into the main lobby of The Vancouver Club with cava and canapés prepared by local, inspiring chefs.

An Intimate and Lavish After Party,

We are partnering with The Vancouver Club and our local chefs to present a luxurious afterparty for 30 guests to attend after the reception and lecture, allowing for more intimate conversation with Adrià. This event will begin at 4:00 p.m. when the 30 ticketholders will leave the ballroom and convene in the opulent Georgian Room where our local chefs will prepare a feast with wine pairings. At this time Adrià will give another, more intimate talk with a Q & A, and enjoy the sumptuous offerings with our guests.
