1984. Ferran joins the staff.
After his military service was over, and after a temporary job in a restaurant in Seville, Ferran joined
the elBulli staff as a chef de partie in March 1984. During those early months, he began to come into contact with the preciseness, stringency
and concentration required for working in a restaurant of this category. But in August, Jean-Paul Vinay announced that he was leaving elBulli to
open a restaurant in Barcelona. For the previous few months, Ferran, Christian Lutaud and Toni Gerez, one of the pillars of the dining area, had
been offered the chance to set up a restaurant of their own in Setcases, near Camprodón. Various conversations with Juli followed and he persuaded
them to stay, so that in October, Ferran and Christian became the chefs de cuisine.
