In a somewhat sensationalist piece, the world's best chef has been accused of "poisoning" his diners by a rival Spanish chef: "'We are facing a public health issue,' claimed Santi Santamaria, who has won three Michelin stars for his Can Fabes restaurant in Barcelona. He said that the 'molecular gastronomy' pioneered by Mr Adria, 46, which involved 'filling diners plates with gelling agents and emulsifiers', was irresponsible. 'Eating more than six grams of methylcellulose can be harmful to the health,' he claimed, commenting on one of the prevalent ingredients in the culinary alchemist's dishes."
