Joan Roca i Fontané (1964, Girona, Catalonia, Spain) is a chef of the restaurant El Celler de Can Roca (in 2013, it was named the best restaurant in the world by the magazine Restaurant, after having been ranked second in 2011 and 2012. In 2014, it was named second best restaurant in the world. In 2015, it was once again named the best restaurant in the world by the magazine Restaurant). He studied in Escola d'Hosteleria de Girona, where later he became a teacher. He worked with his grandparents and parents in their family business, a restaurant of traditional Catalan cuisine. Today Joan is the chef of his own restaurant, together with his two brothers. Josep (sommelier), and Jordi (pastry chef). He is elaborating traditional cuisine together with avant-garde techniques, which implies research of both modern techniques and traditional recipes. Some of the techniques he uses are Sous-vide, "Perfume-cooking" and Distillation.
