It often happens. We usually think that everything has already been invented, that nothing can surprise us anymore… It’s in this very moment when a new idea is born, a different concept, a new flavour.
The Juan Ranas® home-made tomato sauce is exactly that, the new flavour in tomato sauce.
It is not a new artificial ingredient, nor a new taste enhancer. Quite the opposite, the Juan Ranas® home-made tomato sauce is absolutely natural, the pleasure of eating a tasty new food with complete trust.

I am Juan Ranas, the creator of the recipe, and I would like to briefly tell you about what motivated me to search for this new flavour, and the steps I took to achieve it.
We all have memories that will forever remain in our minds. I can still feel the atmosphere in my grand-mother’s kitchen when she prepared tomato sauce, I remember the pots on the fire and the glass jars, ready to receive the sauce made with the tomatoes that my grand-father had picked that very morning from his small vegetable garden. Those were times when we still had trust in the food that we ate.
How ironic life can be! We are able to travel anywhere in the world, communicate instantaneously, or send shuttles into space… yet today, many of the ingredients in our food are unknown to us.
I am not a tomato sauce manufacturer
It may sound strange, but it is true. I represent the restaurant “El Huerto de Juan Ranas”, a gastronomic space situated in the Albaicin, face to face with the spectacular Alhambra monument, a restaurant renowned for its views and for having one of the most demanding kitchens of Granada.
Maybe it is now easier to understand. I am not a tomato manufacturer…
