The Roca Brothers Play A Game

The Roca Brothers are famous for running El Celler de Can Roca, the number one restaurant in the world. We wanted to find out just how well Jordi, Josep and Joan know each other so we challenged them to a game.

They each have their individual styles so we they only talk about food when they are together? Is it all business and no fun? Do they know each other's favorite foods? Find out when you watch The Roca Brothers game show interview.

Boozy Preserves

Canadian food writer Amie Watson set out to explore the world of boozy preserves. We're not talkng your grandma's jams and jellies, instead we're referring to preserves infused with wine and spirits.

Watson focused her research on the French blueberry aigre-doux, a sweet and sour concoction that requires an entire bottle of wine. How did her experiment turn out? Read all about it here.
