It’s not every day when you can call yourself a UN Ambassador and creator of an online cooking course – unless you’re the Roca brothers. Meet Joan, Jordi and Josep, who are now adding “opening a gastronomic research and development center” to their slew of achievements.
Located near their top-ranked restaurant El Celler de Can Roca in Spain, well Catalonia, (think charted on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list, twice!), the Roca Brothers Foundation will focus on innovation, training and social responsibility. Of course, we expect nothing less from UN ambassadors: the foundation is projected to be international in scale and will focus parts of its efforts on food security.
“We will connect with the international community of chefs and stagiaires to cement a global culinary force that will take a substantial step to achieve universal food security under the umbrella of the United Nations Development Program,” said the brothers.
While the project is still in its infancy with no slated opening date, we love what they have planned. Doing good with food is the way to go.
