The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry | A Sydney Food Blog

New podcast – Ferran Adria

June 20th, 2014  |  Published in Podcasts


When Ferran Adria – one of the world’s greatest chefs – was recently in Sydney for a day, I was lucky enough to get a chance to interview him.


In the car ride from the airport to his hotel, I got to ask him about whether he actually eats plane food; we went into detail about elBulli 2005-2011, his spectacular seven-book set about the ground-breaking restaurant’s last chapter; whether he still considers himself a punk (he used to blow up tomatoes and claim it was a “punky” phase he was going through); what he cooks at home and what’s next for elBulli.


You can listen to the podcast on iTunes or download it via RSS or directly. And thanks to everyone who has taken a few moments to slip some nice comments about the podcasts in the iTunes store, it helps spread the word about this project and makes all the audio-snipping and recorder-wielding very rewarding.


Thanks to Phaidon and Kate & Co PR for making this interview possible.

Hi, I'm Lee Tran Lam. When not blogging with my mouth full, I'm usually writing, presenting Local Fidelity on FBi radio, making zines, producing podcasts or continually breaking promises about how I really am gonna get through my book pile one day.

All the good pictures on this blog are by photography ace (and patient boyfriend), Will Reichelt, (all the dodgy ones can be credited to me)!

The lovely banner is by friend and ultra-talented illustrator Grace Lee.

This site redesign was made possible by the next-level generosity and expertise of Daniel Boud, whose code-tinkering ways are only outranked by his seriously inspired way with a camera.

You can read more about my co-conspirators here.

This is a blog I do for pure fun and zero influence – there's no sponsorship, sneaky advertorial or advertising. I pay for all the food mentioned, 'cos it seems the ethical thing to do.


This is a blog about eating and drinking in Sydney, Australia (with the odd cross-border or off-topic detour). BYO appetite.
