“What do you mean you haven’t heard of El Celler de Can Roca? It’s the 2nd best restaurant in the world!” This is the 1st reaction I received when I asked about the restaurant we were going to that afternoon for lunch.

This was the beginning of my lunch of numbers. A lunch I will never forget.

Celler de Can Roca does indeed have the title of 2nd best in the world and I’m pretty sure they are striving for number 1. The surprising part to me is that the 3 star Michelin restaurant is in Girona Spain – not some big metropolis in Europe or in NYC. As we entered the restaurant it was simple – you would never guess that you were walking into such a prestigious place. 3brothers with different focus have found the perfect recipe to blow your culinary mind.

Joan – the architect of taste dreams up the multiple courses
Josep – the magic of El Celler finds wines to compliment it
Jordi – provides the sweet anarchy to finish

The restaurant is run like a machine pumping out a mix of seemingly artistic creations and science experiments to its eager customers.
