Adria announced the wine auction this summer but no dates had been set until now. The wines will be auctioned by Sotheby's in Hong Kong on April 3rd and in New York on April 26th.
The restaurant's cellar contains over 10,000 wines, of which 8,807 bottles will be auctioned. The wine list was carefully crafted by elBulli director Juli Soler and a group of sommeliers. It contains more than 1,600 varieties of wine.
''elBulli restaurant is transforming into elBulli Foundation. Thanks to this sale, our work on gastronomic creativity can continue,'' Adria said in a press release.
Dal is one of those recipes that goes all the way back to the Indus Valley Civilisation. Unlike dishes such as biryani, brought to India by the Moghuls, it is one of those foods that has always been there. It is therefore a building block of Indian culture.
