This week, Ferran Adrià visited the United States, heading first to Harvard University in Boston to give a presentation on the creative process, and then to New York City for a slice of pizza.
Adrià chose one of the city’s newest pizzerias for his slice: the eagerly anticipated Marta, the Danny Meyer project with executive chef Nick Anderer.
From chef Anderer’s Instagram post, we know that Adrià sat at the pizza counter and then posed with the Marta team.
Adrià was also joined by New York City chef Marcus Samuelsson, who stopped by after an evening at The Red Rooster in Harlem to grab a photo (a visual study in mixed prints versus minimalism if we’ve ever seen one) and presumably, a slice.

If Adrià’s recent Twitter feed is any indication, perhaps his dinner at Marta is connected to his search for the first pizza in history, a question he has posed for public discussion online at Fundación Telefónica.
Investigating the origin helps us to reinvent. What was the first pizza in history? http://t.co/h3ZeqmbcPJ
