Joan Roca, chef-owner of El Celler de Can Roca, is “the perfect example of a contemporary chef,” according to Massimo Bottura. Juan Mari Arzak says he’s “generous, creative, thoughtful and warm.” And in Jordi Roca’s opinion, he’s “capable of harmonising the impossible”.
In this video, we speak to the man who makes up one third of the team of brothers behind El Celler de Can Roca, which topped The World's 50 Best Restaurants list in 2013 and 2015.
In our new Best and Beyond series, presented by Miele, we hear from five of the finest chefs on the planet, all of whom own restaurants that have been named No.1 in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants over the list's history – Ferran Adrià, chef-owner of the first ever No.1 in the list, El Bulli, Daniel Humm of Eleven Madison Park (No.1 in 2017), Massimo Bottura of Osteria Francescana (No.1 in 2016), Joan Roca of El Celler de Can Roca (No.1 in 2013 and 2015) and René Redzepi of Noma (No.1 in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014).
On the occasion of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants’s 15th Anniversary in Barcelona, we gathered these global super chefs in one room and asked them about what they’ve learned over the course of their careers, how they continually strive for greatness and what nuggets of knowledge they’d like to pass on to future generations. From René Redzepi never truly believing that Noma was the best restaurant in the world to Ferran Adrià admitting he thinks he knows nothing, their answers were sometimes surprising, often entertaining and always inspiring.
