In this new book the three Roca brothers—Joan, Josep and Jordi—offer a direct account of the secrets of a restaurant that has always been known for the free style of its cuisine, its ability to innovate, and the enormous creative effervescence generated in sync by three thinking heads: Joan in charge of savory food, Jordi with desserts and Josep with wines and the dining room.
