Food & Entertaining

Mallorca offers a wide variety of locally grown products, delicious fresh ingredients and an ever-evolving local wine industry for foodies to enjoy. You just need to know where to shop! Living on Mallorca gives you access to zero kilometre organic fruit and vegetables at the many local weekly food markets, or buying directly from the farmer or local artisan producer – sustainable living at it’s best.

Strawberry Gazpacho

Bowls of strawberry gazpacho set onto al fresco tables always wins smiles. Delicate in colour and flavour, it’s easy to make, too.

Avgolemono Soup Recipe

Lemon season on Mallorca means copious amounts of the yellow super fruit. Why not use them in this delicious Greek soup combining lemon juice, chicken and rice!

Macià Batle winemakers

The family-run Macià Batle winery uses traditional grape growing and winemaking techniques to produce Mallorcan wines of the finest quality and character.

Grilled peach salad

This is one of my favourite Mediterranean summer salads. You’ll find beautiful ripe juicy peaches at the market, crumble the feta cheese and add the best jamón serrano you can find with a handful of rucula mixed with mint leaves and sprinkle with caramelised walnuts for a delightful salad that is sure to impress your friends.

Bodegas Xaloc

Bodegas Xaloc makes incredible award-winning wine in the beautiful setting of North Mallorca. Visit the vineyard yourself to sample the wine and delicious local tapas.
