Our gastronomy is very diverse, according to the different seasons, with products generally from the land, although we find some seafood dishes. In most houses they still cook in clay casseroles, which in former times were taken to the village oven for cooking. The most representative dishes are those made with rice, like the ‘arròs al forn’ (‘oven rice’, having also a variation with anchovies), the ‘paella’ (we find the chickpea paella, snail paella, cod and cauliflower paella…), or the ‘arròs caldós’ (‘rice in broth’, with beans and turnip…); as well as the traditional “putxero” or stew pot, for special occasions. A typical casserole dish from Potries, always cooked in the oven, is the “Bonyítol”, an exquisite recipe with salted fish. The ‘coques’ (flat cakes) and ‘pastissets’ (stuffed cakes) are very typical too, they can be made with tomatoes, peas and onions, herbs….

Regarding traditional sweets, they vary according to the season, although we should highlight the famous ‘bunyols’ (pumpkin buns), the ‘tortell’ (walnut cake) or the orange cake.

Around February 3, it is customary in Potries to cook the ‘Olleta de Sant Blai‘ (Sant Blai’s pot), a hot dish that helps fighting the cold February weather, and approaches us to the most genuine Valencian cuisine. The shops in the town offer as well the best sweets, based on those made in the 17th century, the time when our Porrat was established, with products such as the sugar cane.

La Casa Rural de Carlos was an old factory of combs and buttons that today we have turned into three separate apartments that overlook the interior garden. El Racó de Laieta, L’Assecador and La Fàbrica. When we built them we only thought about the tranquility that the village offers, in its interior garden (shared with the apartments), in its views to orange groves and the smell of orange blossom that they give off during flowering,. And above all, in its location: in the town of Xeresa but in one of the streets that leave the locality towards the orchards of orange trees. From the door of the house there is a splendid panorama in which the orchards of orange trees and the mountains are combined, emphasizing by its singularity the Mondúber.
