A big part of living on Mallorca is learning to cook local Mallorcan recipes, shopping at food markets or organic supermarkets and using fresh ingredients grown on the Balearic Islands. Traditional Spanish cooking is rooted in many healthy recipes that use fresh vegetables, Mediterranean fruit and local meats, washed down with good Spanish wine. In your luxury sea-front villa in Puerto Pollensa or Port Andratx, tuck into easy-to-make Spanish paella, the perfect Mediterranean dining experience. Learning to cook typical Spanish recipes is not hard, whether it is a tortilla de patatas, pan con tomate or croquettes, the simpler, the better. Palma de Mallorca is the heart of food on Mallorca, where international chefs are a great source of inspiration for when you are cooking Spanish recipes at home.
