Happy first anniversary, blog. Where did the year go? It all began with a post about Marc Fosh – the first British chef in Spain to have his cuisine recognized with a Michelin star. His name and restaurants have popped up in posts a few times over the year – deservedly so too. Anyway, a first anniversary seems like a good excuse for a cake, don’t you think? Sadly, there’s no time for baking today, so I’ll settle for a chocolate biscuit with my tea.
Autumn is the season for foodies on Mallorca, with several gastronomic events scheduled in the coming weeks. Here are a couple for this weekend (October 18th and 19th).
Fira del Pebre Bord – Felanitx
The main event of the week-long celebrations of the Mallorcan paprika is on Sunday, 19th, when the streets and squares of Felanitx will be filled with activities. The key location is the Parc Municipal de Sa Torre. There are things going on all day Sunday from 09:00-19:30h.
2nd Fira de la Cervesa Artesana d’Inca
Mallorca has gained a good reputation for its wines, with some 70 wineries on the island. But in the past couple of years, new microbreweries have been springing up across the island, producing artisan beers. Sunday’s fair in Inca is an opportunity to sup a few brews, and enjoy a few tapas, courtesy of Quely and Celler Can Amer. The fair starts at 10am in Plaça d‘Espanya and continues until the beers – or the punters – run out. Cheers!
Have a great weekend when it arrives!
