Ferran Adrià Casting French Bulldogs for Logo; Here Are Our Nominations

Adrià is reportedly looking for the perfect French bulldog to become the logo for the elBulliFoundation

One lucky pup might just get the chance to be the face of an elite culinary institution; the Guardian reports (hat tip to Eater) that legendary Spanish chef Ferran Adrià is scouting for a French bulldog to model for the logo of the elBulliFoundation.

The dog will then be the face of Adrià's upcoming foundation, a culinary center with a permanent exhibition about elBulli (Adrià's restaurant, which closed back in 2011), an area for pop-up dinners and fundraising events, and a lab for students to experiment with food. That's a lot for a puppy to take on.

Apparently, Adrià is searching all over the world for the perfect French bulldog, as it was a French bulldog that inspired the original beachside bar that turned into elBulli.

"I will hold casting sessions in New York, London, Madrid, and Barcelona if necessary," Adrià told the Guardian. Our nominations below:

And finally, all of these bulldogs.
