Slow-food movement at El Secanet
We don’t have a menu in El Secanet since we treat our guests like friends who come te have dinner with us. We serve them the best we have and the best we know, always trying to surprise them, using products we buy at the local markets or grow in our own vegetable garden or henhouse. We like to combine the newest culinary trends with traditional recipes.
The dinners are usually based on several tapas, with a main dish and a home made dessert. In season we serve peahen eggs, geese, mandarin legs, silky chickens… Our salads are very special, consisting of freshly picked vegetables and almost forgotten aromas. The local Almedijar cheeses have a most special place in our list of products. One of our culinary pillars is the olive oil from the mountain range of Vall de Almonacid.
A guest said about Gemma’s cuisine:
Everything is designed to activate the senses.
The culmination of all these – not human – sensations, is achieved in every dish.
Unique jewels, created outside the circuits of the great chefs and gastronomic routes. At the door there are no stars … They are inside. Real art.
As if it were a canvas, each dish brings imagination, originality and creativity. Rotate the canvas to see it from all angles, it becomes a whole artistic expression. The subtlety of each product, texture, shapes and volumes … Everything is ready for us to participate in a ritual, where everything visual is forgotten when you start to taste it.
The betrayal is brewn in absolute silence … treacherous hands are taking every creation to the mouth, leaving no time not even to contemplate it one last time. And so, again and again. Due to these sounds, which cross the doors, the artist doesn’t fail. The table witnesses unspeakable pleasures.
…”uanfuá” mint tea, naked citrus, truffle, candle, rosemary, vinaigrettes, silence, shadows, liquid gold, carpaccio, pasta “para arriba”… a sensory spectacle …
(oh, and the toast with the maitre.)
We rediscovered the word ‘lunch’ and it scares us, later we got hooked. Wood fire, shadows of Sunday, beautifully arranged concentric circles, the time, an order, it is noon… and the treacherous hand of the night, now is the one that creates and commands. And how it creates, some boletus mushrooms and… Your taste buds will go crazy!
Restaurant. Sólo cenas a clientes alojados.

Such a lovely place! We stayed here for three nights, but we could easily have stayed here for a much longer period. The beautiful garden of El Secanet is full of herbs, fruit, roses and jasmin. There are peacocks and chickens. You can swim in the pool, relax in the hot tub or lounge in one of the chairs. Salva and Gemma sure know how to spoil their guests! Each day we had a different breakfast. Some of the things we had: eggs benedictine, chocolate pie, sobrasado, fruit from the garden (figues, peaches), strawberry cake, pieces of sausage, Iberico ham, a selection of cheese. Do stay here for dinner, you won?t regret it. We just loved Gemma?s ?crema? of ?petit pois?, her ?Ferrero Rocher? (foie covered by almonds), her crusty ?pizza?, her juicy steak with homemade chips and her crepes with peaches. The local red wine she served, ?Malavida?, was great too. Our room was stylish and comfortable. We even had a huge terrace. A superb place to unwind. Thumbs up for the sweet and super friendly Salva and Gemma!
