The work done in elBulli was gradually beginning to bear fruit and earn recognition from specialist
guides. In 1990 the National Academy of Gastronomy gave Juli Soler its award for best Chef de Salle, and two years later it was Ferran Adrià
who received recognition with the award for the best Chef de Cuisine. But 1990 also saw the Michelin guide, possibly the most significant
world reference in catering, awarding a second star to our restaurant, a distinction that we had already enjoyed in the previous decade.
