Andoni Luis Aduriz, above, chef at the world-renowned restaurant Mugaritz in Spain, brought his team to Boston last fall to promote good food’s place in a healthy society.

Aduriz is a member of the Tufts Nutrition Council, a group of thought leaders who are helping the school address malnutrition. In collaboration with Loyal Nine restaurant in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Aduriz created a benefit dinner to support the Jean Mayer Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts. His imaginative menu included egg yolks with sea urchin and potatoes cooked to mimic river stones.
