    Hey, on Amazon it's been knocked down to $533.  

    In his defense, the dude has a book on "home cooking" that is normally priced.

    I have huge respect for Ferran Adrià but crikey this is expensive. It's £361.25 on Amazon.co.uk. That's insane.

    I bet they're fantastic books though, i'd love to get my paws on a copy. I'd be in seventh heaven.

    Everytime I hear or see anything that has to do with Ferran Adrià, I kind of want to kick myself. I made reservations for his restaurant Tickets in Barcelona, which we had to do 3 months in advance, but my husband and I were having such a blast that the day came and went and I totally forgot! That's what happens when I prioritize Betty Boop BCN on the top of my list..../img/vbsmilies/smilies/smoking.gif

    ..and no, I will not buy his book. Not even if I won the mega millions lotto. Let's be real.
