Estrella Damm Joan Roca

Estrella Damm has brought the world’s top chef and its own Gastronomic Experience to Scotland for the first time.

Joan Roca, chef/proprietor of El Celler de Can Roca, in Girona, Spain, showcased his gastronomic delights to more than 100 of Scotland’s top chefs, restaurateurs and food experts at Colstoun House by Edinburgh.

Joan is known for linking traditional cuisine with avant garde techniques. In 2013 and 2015, his restaurant was voted number one in The World’s 50 Best Restaurants, and in 2016 his chef peers named him winner of the Chefs’ Choice Award.

The event was inspired by the Gastronomy Congresses, a concept invented by Estrella Damm to bring together many of the world’s best chefs to experience demonstrations and discussions around food. They have previously taken place in Miami, Lisbon, Melbourne and London.
