A Cook’s Guide to Mallorca’s Culinary Delights: New Recipe Booklet With Mallorca Farmhouses


New for 2012, self-catering accommodation specialists Mallorca Farmhouses now provide guests with a fantastic cook’s guide to Mallorca. Keen to give a true taste of authentic Mallorcan cuisine, Mallorca Farmhouses have compiled various recipes on how to cook Spanish fare from simple tapas to traditional Mallorcan dishes, all of which utilise fresh local produce. Perfect for enjoying during a Mallorca villa holiday.

Guests can cook up a storm in the kitchen or BBQ terrace and enjoy a whole host of delicacies such as pimientos de padron (tapas of fried green peppers), pescado a la mallorquina (Mallorcan style fish), lechona al horno (oven baked suckling-pig) and the ever-popular Spanish paella – great to cook on a BBQ.

The Mallorcan recipes appear in an information pack, placed in each property, which also provides information on Mallorca’s well-stocked local markets, when they take place and at which village. Visit Santanyi or Felanitx market in the south-east for cheese, meat, fish and locally made olive oil and salt. While Pollenca market in the north has a great selection of ham, vegetables and wine.

Forgot to buy something? Don’t worry, the farmhouse gardens may provide a few key ingredients such as lemons, oranges or figs! Some properties, such as the five-bedroom Es Castell, even produce their own olive oil and wine for guests to try.

Alternatively, for those who prefer to put their feet up and be waited on, Mallorca Farmhouses also offer a private catering service. A chef will come to the property and provide a fine dining experience in the luxury, comfort and privacy of the villa or farmhouse. Choose from the tasty BBQ menu, traditional Spanish and Mallorcan dishes or the finest French and international cuisine. For more information on villa chef service in Mallorca, see their website.

Accommodation prices start from £452 per week for Cassellas de Baix, a two-bedroom country cottage with private pool in the village of Campanet, near Pollenca. The price includes maid service and a starter pack. Flights excluded.
