The Worst Restaurants in Mallorca

This Spotlight Sunday post is one that starts right now and will be (unfortunately) added to over time, as and when necessary. Here in Mallorca the level of service at restaurants is constantly disappointing; it seems that staff just aren’t trained or don’t care, and it seems that many front of house staff and kitchen […]

Hierbas in Selva

This weekend was one of village fairs here in Mallorca. As you know, on Saturday I was eating all things potato at the Feria de la Patata in Sa Pobla.

Feria de la Patata, Sa Pobla

As you know, I am at home in Mallorca at the moment… working (well, the money for all these travels has to come from somewhere)! Just because I’m working, doesn’t mean I can’t have fun too… Take a little stroll in my shoes… we are going to Sa Pobla…

Embutidos Matas

Embutidos Matas: one of the most delicious places in Mallorca, with the loveliest staff and great prices too… Do you have any idea what embutidos are? Well basically they are products that we might consider “cold cuts” in English. This generally refers to anything that you might put in a sandwich, like ham, cheese, salami, etc.

Mallorca Wine Train

Mallorca Wine Tour

The Wine Express is a “train” that sets off from Macia Batle wine cellar and heads out […]


Magic Mallorcan Cooking Pot

No Mallorcan kitchen is complete without a greixonera. A greixonera is made of what, in Spain, they call barro, meaning “muck”! In English it is more commonly known as an earthenware dish or clay pot. Of course, in the markets there are many different sizes and shapes of earthenware dishes but the typical Mallorcan earthenware dish is the greixonera. This […]


Lechona: The Mallorquines do it Best

Lechona. Just the thought of lechona makes my stomach growl! This is quite possibly the most delicious dish you will be served in Mallorca. Lechona, also known as cochinillo, is roast suckling pig. Traditionally it is roasted whole on a spit, slowly. The potatoes are suspended from the spit under the lechona and as the […]


The Strange Things They Eat In Mallorca

Day of the Fair in Caimari

Frito Mallorquin

If you are visiting Mallorca, Frito Mallorquin is one dish that you just can’t leave without trying: it uses all typical ingredients and is very very tasty. I’m normally the one who promotes the “have a go” attitude but with Frito Mallorquin I’m going to say if you don’t know how to make it then don’t bother […]

Back to Basics in Mallorca

Mallorca is February’s Destination of the Month – but not for its beautiful beaches, picturesque villages, dramatic mountain range or energetic nightlife: Mallorca is Destination of the Month at for its gastronomy.
