The Tiger of Yuzu
A meeting that will entail a great change for both prestigious chefs
The Tiger of Yuzu is a play, based on real events, about the inspiring friendship between two geniuses of gastronomy: Ferran Adrià, the chef who has transformed contemporary cuisine and Hiroyoshi Ishida, the Great Master of traditional Japanese cooking.
In 2002, at the peak of his career, Ferran Adrià realizes how at his restaurant elBulli, the high-performance standards are slowly killing the creativity.
Meanwhile at Mibu, the restaurant in Ginza of Hiroyoshi Ishida and his wife Tomiko, they keep on practicing the traditional kaiseki cuisine, becoming the guardians of ancient Japanese traditions. But in a frenzy city as Tokyo, the interest in traditions quickly decreases.
A show that sets a dialogue between modernity and tradition and serves as an example for relationships between different cultures in the XXIst Century
The Tiger of Yuzu opened on July the 3rd 2017 at Festival GREC in Barcelona
