Quotes

"Josh Geary] will be pretty hard to beat around here. He has a great record and it is going to take a good performance to beat him. But there are good players in the field so hopefully we can put some pressure on him. There will be a few guys who like their chances but Josh will be the favourite for sure. I am looking forward to that challenge."
"We are all wanting there to be a Yes vote because we believe we can dodo something similar in Catalonia."
...the entire team—chefs and servers—will spend five weeks touring the world, taking what’s local at each destination and adding the El Celler touch. "We always want to keep learning,” says Jordi Roca. “The more new references we can find, the more we’ll grow as chefs and as people. It’s exciting to be able to see and work with ingredients we don’t get back home or which don’t make sense to Girona, but are local to other places; also it’s challenging."
