Q & A with The El Celler De Can Roca Team

Q. For people who have never been to El Celler de Can Roca, can you describe the experience and the food?  

Sole à la meunière

A. We try to transmit through our restaurant the roots and tradition of Catalan cuisine, where creativity is our concern.

Q. How do you develop your concepts as a team... from inspiration to dish?

A. As three brothers, we compose a creative triangle that is able to leverage the contribution of three worlds - salty, sweet and wine- and they compliment each other. All three of us take part in the entire process from the idea through the mise en place.

Q. Tell us about the Roner Compact?

A. For us, the Roner Compact is the most versatile and easiest to use thermostatic double boiler (bain marie). Cooking with vacuum sealed bags allows you to respect the nutritional properties of the ingredients, while achieving a precise cooking point and in turn the best gastronomical results. At the moment, we are working on a book tackling sous vide cooking from the point of view of ambitious home cooks where we will show the improvements that this technique can have on overall health and how to control temperatures.

Arenys de Mar | Hispania

One should order the “Suquet de Langosta,” a typical Catalan seafood stew of spiny lobster.

Asturias | Casa Gerardo

For the perfect balance between traditional and avant garde Asturian food, I would recommend the “fabada” from Casa Gerardo -- an Asturian stew made of beans, pork sausage and bacon.

On the Costa Brava, in a small town called l’Estartit, I would recommend the restaurant Cal Tet for seafood.
