Unusual cooking on the Holy Grail Route
The kitchen at the convent at Santo Espíritu (Gilet) has an unusual cook, none other than Padre Ángel. Every day, Fray Ángel cooks whatever he finds in the market, which is where he decides on his menus. He makes everything on the menu himself, including bread and desserts. His home cooked stews, using tried and trusted old recipes, are simple and tasty.
Padre Ángel's food is cooked carefully, unhurriedly, because he doesn't keep a watchful eye on the clock; what's important in his cooking are the ingredients, not the time. The food is served in the convent dining room, in the countryside, enjoying the peace and quiet of the Sierra Calderona mountain range.
