Overview

Roca's creations exhibit a whirl of stimulating imagination, daring, and boldness—and have made him one of the top influencers in the pastry scene, both nationally and internationally. He aims to give his diners a unique experience, by creating dishes intended to stimulate all the senses. "The texture, flavor, aroma, or the preparation of the different ingredients can activate our sensory memory and take us to a moment, a landscape, or a feeling." Restless and curious, this young chef explores the limits of culinary creativity by breaking the mold and thinking outside—and beyond—the box.

Over 80 recipes, each with their own full-color photograph, take us on a journey through the seasons—from Pineapple, Mango, and Passion Fruit Soup to Sweet Potato with Tangerine Granita. A brief history of the family restaurant, El Celler de Can Roca, along with pastry tips and techniques are also provided.

"Dessert" usually means the end of the meal, but for Jordi Roca, it is just the beginning!
