Jordi Roca is, alongside Martín Berasategui, the finest pâtissier in Spain. By a large margin. They are simply on another level entirely. They are the only ones who, year after year, confirm their excellence, even capable of surpassing themselves in the process. We all know of the line that he began with the perfumes, starting a trend that still continues today. We all know of the numerous consecrated dishes, among which we must mention one: the Havana cigar. We all know what runs in his veins. The foie gras turrón with soy, a daring creation, even provocative, is a perfect testimony to the symbiosis between sweet and savory. Brilliance has a name with this next dish: Anarchy. It constitutes the final perfection of an anterior version. In both cases, Jordi has audaciously demonstrated his own chaos theory, a chaos theory converted into a trend, like the perfumes, in his desserts, with which he demystifies the first rule of beauty: sapid immaculateness. Both the foie gras turrón with soy as well as the new version of anarchy liven up the orgiastic feast. They share flavor, utterly flavorful, irreverently and brilliantly combining the flavors, countless flavors, countless perfumes and textures and colors. “Anything goes if it heightens the pleasure”, seems to be the mantra here. In this case the orgy is more than justified.
