Michelin-starred chef Ferran Adrià to teach at Harvard in USA

Michelin-starred chef Ferran Adrià to teach at Harvard in USA

Acclaimed Spanish chef Ferran Adrià is set to teach at Harvard university in the USA to create and undergraduate course in culinary physics.

The news comes weeks after Adrià announced that he was to close his three Michelin-starred El Bulli restaurant for two years. El Bulli, which was said to be losing £435,000 a year, is set to become a non-profit foundation when it reopens in 2014.

Adrià will begin teaching at Harvard in autumn at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

His general education science course will use cooking to introduce students to soft matter physics, which involves the study of suspensions and gels.

The Harvard course will also feature lectures by researchers and celebrity chefs, including fellow Spaniard Jose Andres, who trained with Adrià, and New York's Wylie Dufresne.
