“This book will show you everything we’ve learned in the kitchen of El Celler de Can Roca, but also in our respective kitchens with our families, showing you different techniques with which to improve your dishes. You will see that slow cooking has been practised for thousands of years and that the main technological advance is basically the control and precision with which we can cook today. But in the end, we cook to enjoy the goodness of great cooking: it gives us pleasure, helps us to stay healthy, conveys emotions, and transmits knowledge, values and affection. Through cooking we can discover culture at home and abroad, we can defy our senses, allow our imagination to take flight and get a little closer to the land. It helps us to express gratitude and dedicate time to our loved ones. Everything that matters most in the world.
I encourage you to discover these techniques, which will undoubtedly help you to achieve better results in your kitchens. I hope that you enjoy the adventure.” Joan Roca
The new trend in domestic cooking as taught by the best chef in the world.
