The standing trilogy of modern Spanish cooking descended upon the SLS Hotel in Los Angeles last night. No, not olive oil, garlic, and saffron. We mean José Andrés, Ferran Adrià, and Juan Mari Arzak. Entitled "A Discussion With Friends: Ideas of Today, Foods of Tomorrow," the talk and question and answer session attracted perhaps 300 attendees — fans, friends, cooks, chefs, and media — and was in honor of the second anniversary of the opening of The Bazaar By José Andrés. Chefs including John Rivera Sedlar, Ludo Lefebvre, the guys behind Test Kitchen, and cooks from Bazaar all nodded approvingly at Andrés' antics, Arzak's humor, and Adrià's wisdom. Media and fans were simply agog and hanging on every word that came out of the translator's mouth (Arzak and Adrià spoke only in Spanish).

Full recap including bickering, teasing, and feigned distress. >>
