Chef: David Myers

The Book: El Bulli: El Sabor del Mediterráneo by Ferran Adrià, 1993

“I happened upon it at the great Paris cookbook store Librairie Gourmande, when I was working in France in 1997,” says Hinoki & the Bird chef David Myers. “I’d never heard of him, but as I flipped through it I thought, ‘My god, who is this guy?’ That book blew me away in every way: visually, in how he plated, it was game-changing.”
