Joves Cuiners association was set up in 1999 by a group of young chefs from Girona province, most of whom completed training courses in Ferran Adrià's world-famous El Bulli restaurant, or have won various gastronomy awards.
The goal of the association is to promote a cuisine with its own personality, by uniting tradition with new trends, and paying special attention to the quality of the raw materials used. It aims to create a young, fresh, signature cuisine.
Joves Cuiners seeks to update the concepts of Catalan cuisine. The young chefs in the group are all restaurant owners, who exchange skills and knowledge with the aim of gaining personal and professional enrichment.
