In this book the prestigious chef Joan Roca, at the head of the celebrated restaurant El Celler de Can Roca, introduces a top selection of traditional Cata­lan recipes from among those his mother, Montse­rrat, has always prepared at the Can Roca restaurant in Girona, where he began his professional training.

The foundations of the cuisine that now bears the name of this master chef are encompassed in the­se pages: from the fried calamari to the delicious crema catalana, as well as the festival cannelloni and the fish suquet.
