When Tim Carman sat down with Ferran Adria for this week’s article on the chef’s post-El Bulli plans, the two were joined by Jose Andres, Adria’s friend, former employee and the man behind such local spots as Jaleo, Zaytinya and Minibar.
Bonnie Benwick’s accompanying Book Report already featured several recipes from Adria’s new book, but to give you a little more of a taste of this Spanish duo, here are some gems from Jose Andres, courtesy of our Recipe Finder:
• Gambas a la Plancha (Shrimp Cooked on a Griddle), with the only two ingredients being shrimp and kosher salt.
• Marmitako (Basque Stew of Tuna, Potatoes, Peppers and Onions), a Spanish dish with origins on a fishing boat.
• Tomato Bread With Anchovies, a Catalonian tapa that will take advantage of the season’s last tomatoes.
• Tortilla al Estilo Route 11 (Route 11 Potato Chips Omelet), an adapted Adria recipe that Andres included in his 2005 cookbook.
