Here's a video in which Ferran Adrià and Mark Bittman cook some mussels from the upcoming The Family Meal: Home Cooking with Ferran Adria. Then, over lunch, they discuss the decision to close elBulli. Sick of all the recent media coverage in light of the Spanish restaurant's impending shutter? Well, so is Adrià: "The system, gastronomy, is tired of elBulli." It's like the Lakers, apparently, in that if they win every year, "it can't work anymore."
