An exuberant follow-up to last year's scrumptious, globe-trotting documentary Cooking Up a Tribute, director Luis González again teams with the Roca brothers - Joan, Josep and Jordi, owners of Catalonia's Celler de Can Roca, current holder of Restaurant Magazine's Best Restaurant in the World honor-to take a five-week tour across Turkey, and dive into the rich, diverse culinary cultures at one of the world's major crossroads.
Setting out to honor the influences that make up Turkish cuisine and to reinvigorate Can Roca's own menu, the three brothers seek new ideas in places as diverse as the bustling streets and marketplaces of Istanbul and the vineyards of Cappadocia, openly engaging with and learning from the sommeliers, chefs and farmers that drive one of the world's more traditional yet evolving gastronomic cultures. From Arabic, Asian and European influences to the exciting recent development of New Anatolian cuisine, the brothers embrace an ancient nation on the cusp of a food revolution; their restless creativity in turn makes their own Can Roca not only one of the world's great restaurants but a restaurant truly of the world.
