Roca Brothers

The Roca brothers, owners of the “El Celler de Can Roca” restaurant, as well as a documentary about Spanish Sherry wine, will star at the Culinary Cinema program of the 65th Berlinale, which starts Feb. 5.

LAHT.com–BERLIN – In “Cooking Up a Tribute,” a road (cooking) movie directed by Luis Gonzalez and Andrea Gomez, brothers Joan, Josep and Jordi Roca, conscious of the need for introducing their cooking to the world and their obsession with innovation, decide to close their restaurant for five weeks to go on tour.

The film is a unique experience detailing their journey last summer to six cities in four countries on the American continent (Houston, Dallas, Mexico DF, Monterrey, Bogota and Lima), during which they prepared 50,000 dishes for over 2,700 people. The film, according to its creators, is a tribute to American cuisine, which has offered so much to European and world gastronomy.
