Everybody needs a goal

and mine is to eat at El Bulli in Spain which was voted the #1 restaurant in the world by Restaurant Magazine. The magazine just released its World's 50 Best Restaurant list for 2006. El Bulli is only open for 6 months and reservations get snatched up in a millisecond. Chef Ferran Adria uses the 6 months that the restaurant is closed to create new and innovative dishes. Tony Bourdain visited El Bulli on his Food Network show.

Thinking a little more closer to home and perhaps a little more realistically, I also want to try #20 on the list Chez Panisse.

It's in Berkeley and is owned by Alice Waters, a pioneering chef who began to buy produce from small local farmers in the 70's. She emphasizes organic, seasonal and locally grown items on all of her menus. Her cookbooks are the bomb-diggity, here are the ones we have:
