What do you get when you cross legendary Michelin-starred Spanish chef Ferran Adrià with fictional and animated Disney characters? Recipes like chickpeas and spinach, fit for a Jedi, eggplant padawan, and The Jungle Book juice.

It’s an unlikely and surprising partnership.

Kind of like a storyline about a Paris rat cooking at a fancy, gastronomic restaurant.

But in an unexpected move proving that, despite his reputation for rigor and his highly cerebral approach to food Adrià can also be playful, the chef has partnered with Disney to produce a multimedia series aimed at teaching kids and families how to cook healthy meals in Spain.

Called “Te cuento en la cocina,” ‘(“I tell you in the kitchen”) the project involves video segments, a cookbook and app, with recipes inspired by popular Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars films and characters.

Remy from Ratatouille, for instance, teaches kids and parents alike how to make the perfect scrambled eggs.

(Hint: Adding a little cream to the eggs at the beginning will yield fluffier eggs.)

Arlo broccoli appetizers make the vegetable more palatable for kids when they’re roasted in the oven with pine nuts, currants and a drizzle of olive oil.

And a Jungle Book-inspired cocktail is made with cantaloupe, orange juice and lime juice.

Overall, Adrià has created 60 new healthy, kid-friendly recipes for the project which is executed in Spanish.

Though this may be his first recipe collection for kids, it’s not the first cookbook Adrià has penned for families.

In 2011, Adrià released “The Family Meal: Home Cooking with Ferran Adrià” featuring 100 recipes inspired by staff meals at his legendary elBulli restaurant which before shuttering was named the World’s Best Restaurant five times.
