To keep the secret of the ancestral recipes inherited from the founders, just some members of the family are in charge of giving the final touch to the preserved partridge dishes, according to Pilar Orellana, grand-daughter Vicente Orellana, who established the business during the Spanish post-civil war period. The 100% artisanal and manual processes used when the family opened their first restaurant are still applied in the elaboration of the preserved line of products.
Orellana family runs a hotel, restaurants, and breed bulls for bullfighting in a farm located in Sierra Morena. Untill now, the gourmet preserved food line is not a big income source, but it has the clear vocation to grow. Their products are available at Mantequerías Bravo and Cristina Oria in Madrid, at Marídame in Barcelona and at Mercado de la Bretxa in San Sebastián. You can also find them in countries like France, Belgium and Germany.
