Co-Owner & Executive Chef of El Celler de Can Roca
Wednesday, September 19th | 2:30-4:00pm
462 Broadway, 2nd Floor | NYC
Open to ICC Students & Alumni* ONLY
This September, current students of the International Culinary Center will have not one, but two unique opportunities to learn from world-renowned chef Joan Roca, Co-owner & Executive Chef of El Celler de Can Roca—named in the top five on Restaurant magazine’s coveted World’s 50 Best Restaurants list since 2009, including top spots in 2013 and 2015.
The annual BBVA-sponsored world culinary tour brings the Roca brothers and the culinary team of El Celler de Can Roca to New York City for two dinners at Cipriani Wall Street on September 18 and 19 for invited diners to enjoy a taste of the contemporary Catalan cuisine showcased at their Girona, Spain-based restaurant. As part of this partnership, select International Culinary Center students will be invited to work in the kitchen with Chef Joan Roca and the El Celler de Can Roca team to prepare for the dinners. This special volunteer opportunity is open to current ICC students only to cook alongside the Roca team and learn some of their innovative techniques first hand. At the end of the event, one ICC student volunteer will be selected by the Roca team to receive a scholarship to continue their education with an internship to train for 4 months at their famed restaurant in Spain, currently named No. 2 restaurant in the world on the 2018 World’s 50 Best Restaurant list.
In addition to the dinner, ICC will be hosting the only NYC master class with Chef Joan Roca on Wednesday, September 19th at 2:30pm for current ICC students and alumni* as part of the educational activities of their New York City tour. Chef Roca, known best for his ground-breaking sous-vide techniques, will discuss the history & inspiration behind the family-operated restaurant, while demonstrating the same modern techniques used to transform Catalan cuisine at their restaurant in Girona, Spain. This special opportunity to learn from one of today’s most influential chefs will be open to current ICC students, with limited seating available for ICC alumni* and media guests.
