The Basque Culinary Center, considered by many the Harvard of the culinary world, has added two great chefs to its impressive advisory board: Joan Roca from El Celler de Can Roca (currently the world's best restaurant) and Mexico's number one chef Enrique Olvera from Pujol restaurant.
Every year, the BCC hosts a summit to discuss problems affecting the culinary industry. This time around Barber will host the members of the advisory board in New York on September 23rd and 24th. During that time Roca and Olvera will be inducted as members and will partake in this year's discusion of Seeds: Cultivaitng the Seeds for the Future.
At the moment, all eyes on Olvera and other Latin American chefs like Acurio and Atala. The world awaits to see how they will fare in tomorrow's inaugural edition of Latin America's 50 Best Restaurant awardsto be held in Lima, Peru.
