BBVA (Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria, Bilbao, Spain) and its U.S. subsidiary, BBVA Compass, announced the selection of two Miami Dade College (MDC) / Miami Culinary Institute (MCI) students who will complete apprenticeships under the famed Roca brothers of El Celler de Can Roca, which landed at No. 1 on Restaurant magazine’s influential World’s 50 Best Restaurants list this year. 

As part of its three-year partnership with El Celler de Can Roca,, BBVA is sponsoring the four-month culinary internships including all travel and lodging costs. 

Marcelo Sardina and Sachi Statz  will embark on their four-month culinary and cultural journey at the Girona, Spain-based El Celler de Can Roca, where they will work side by side with the Roca brothers: Head Chef Joan, Sommelier Josep, and Pastry Chef Jordi Roca.  “This opportunity is priceless,” said Chef Collen Engle, MCI chair. “To work and learn at the best restaurant in the world is a dream come true for these students. The internships furthers our mission and our continued efforts to have a culinary school that is global in scope.” 

Marcelo Sardina and Sachi Statz were chosen from a group of 10 MCI students who assisted the Roca brothers and their staff in prepping meals for 200 BBVA Compass clients and invited guests aboard the SeaFairMiami, a luxury yacht on Biscayne Bay.
