While Ferran and Albert Adrià show off their forthcoming tapas emporiums, weve gotten word that Ferran will release another cookbook, and his first for the casual home cook, The Family Meal: Home Cooking at ElBulli. Phaidon will publish the $29.95 hardcover this fall. As the title implies, the 100 simple, seasonal, quick recipes, illustrated with hundreds of photographs, were inspired by the restaurants three-course family meals. And were not talking improvised spaghetti dishes here a rep tells us Adrià, true to form, plans the daily menus and recipes at the beginning of each season. So there you have it: If you didnt score reservations for ElBullis final season, you can finally taste the dishes that wouldnt have been served to you even if you had gotten in.
