The typical gastronomy of El Poble Nou de Benitatxell maintains the most traditional flavours, the essence of its past. Simple delights that refer to its location between the sea and the interior; fishing and agriculture, salted and sweet reminiscences of Arab. Local recipes has been passed from generation to generation as well as its mode of cooking in wood-fired ovens, kneaded and cooked with the traditional utensils. Fish, vegetables, mediterranean products collected in the particular garden and served with the utmost dedication.
The table also does not lack products that define the town's identity as artisan wine and white wine Moraig, beans in spring and muscat grapes in summer. Humble but great delicacies of forced enjoyment!
