If you thought Ferran Adrià would do a Conan-esque stand-up comedy tour after closing El Bulli as a restaurant and turning it into a foundation, you were wrong. He’s actually doing something just as bizarre. The Washington Post reports that he and brother in molecular gastronomy José Andrés will lead a “first-of-its-kind course in culinary physics” at Harvard University. And who will one of their T.A.'s be? None other than statesman chef Dan Barber will teach a class in the series. “This is designed to create a dialogue between cooks and scientists,” says the Harvard research fellow in charge. Interesting career choice for Adrià — please tell us that it’s at least being filmed for a Future Food-type reality show.
