The most important revolution in culinary history took place in a remote cove on the Catalan coast. The Big Bang of creative discovery that was elBulli sparked from the minds of two brothers from a humble suburb of Barcelona. Since then the name Adrià has become synonymous of creativity.

Ferran is the famous maestro everyone knows, however, with 29 years of a brilliant career behind him, Albert is considered “the most underrated chef in the world”.

Back in Barcelona Albert is building a gastronomic mile. Enigma is his most ambitious project, and the one he hopes to turn into one of the best restaurants in the world.

This is Albert's proclamation of self-assurance, his attempt to escape the shadow of the now legendary elBulli and enter the Pantheon of great chefs. This is Albert constructing himself.
