At the Califa Group our philosophy is to use the freshest local ingredients and, as far as possible, to use organic ones. Furthermore, in our restaurant El Jardín del Califa we only use free-range eggs and organic meat (our beef is of the local breed, the Retinto). Similarly, 95% of the vegetables we use are from nearby gardens (from the province) and at least 60% (depending on the season) are organic.
