THE world’s best pastry chef is branching out of Spain for the first time.
Barcelona-born chef Albert Adria is leaving his home comforts for the big smoke of London.
Launched on February 12, Adria’s 50 Days restaurant at London’s Hotel Cafe Royal is the former elBulli chef’s ‘biggest risk’ to date.
Running until April 9 Adria is equally ‘nervous’ and ‘excited’ about the project.
“This is a big challenge for me, it is the biggest risk I have ever taken,” he said. “I have never opened anything abroad before and I feel very exposed at the moment.”
Adria was named the world’s best pastry chef at The World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards last year.
Since elBulli shut in 2011, Adria has opened six restaurants in Barcelona as well as one in Ibiza.
