(AP) Famed Spanish chef Ferran Adria says he will cook for an outside event for the first time since closing his three-star Michelin restaurant.


Adria told The Associated Press he's making a "huge exception" when he agreed to make a dish for a dinner Thursday to launch coffee-maker Lavazza's 2014 calendar. He says he's received "requests every day" to cook elsewhere since closing elBulli in 2011.


The avant-garde chef is reprising a "historic" 1992 dish: Granizado de tomate, an iced tomato and almond starter. He called it "a gift for the Lavazza family."


An image of Adria inside a think-bubble full of foodstuffs graces the cover of Lavazza's calendar, which features seven of the world's top chefs. Five others also are cooking for the dinner.
