El Celler de Can Roca, declared the best restaurant in the world by the british magazine Restaurant, will join BBVA's Open Talent competition. The six winning startups will spend a day in the Roca brothers' kitchen where innovation is a prominent ingredient.
During their visit to the Roca “kitchen-turned-lab” the entrepreneurs will acquire first-hand knowledge of the disruptive approaches to la cuisine that led El Celler de Can Roca to gastronomic excellence. And they will also taste the Roca's most creative dishes at a lunch that will crown an unforgettable experience.
