If you’re looking for a Christmas gift for a foodie or keen cook, I’d like to suggest three cookbooks written here in Mallorca. The first was published in 2019; the second, this year, and the third one, only recently.
Modern Mediterranean – Sun-drenched recipes from Mallorca and beyond – by Marc Fosh (whose eponymous restaurant in Palma de Mallorca has a Michelin star).
The mymuybueno Cookbook – by Justine Murphy (who has recently relocated her eponymous cookery school to London).
The third cookbook I would suggest is called Mallorca – Das Kochbuch by Caroline Fabian (left in photo below). Yup, you guessed correctly: it’s in German. I have a copy, even though my schoolgirl German is as rusty as an abandoned Mallorcan tractor.
This book has a vibrant cover and is packed with beautiful photographs and I’m sure it would delight any Mallorca-loving foodie friend who speaks German, or has a grasp of the language.
Caroline Fabian – Cook & Author
Caroline Fabian is from Munich but is married to a Mallorcan and lives on the island. After her training, she went to work in Canada and later moved to Mallorca, where she worked in Josef Sauerschell’s Michelin-starred Es Racó d’es Teix in the mountain village of Deià.
For more than a decade, Caroline has been a private cook, catering for visitors and residents all over the island. She’s passionate about the island’s gastronomy and the specialist producers here.
Authors in Mallorca
Caroline joined me in conversation on the second episode of my podcast Authors in Mallorca, available to hear on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and TuneIn. Here’s a taster…
If you enjoy podcasts, you may also like to check out Living in Rural Mallorca – in which I talk to foreigners who have chosen to live in the Mallorcan countryside. I’d love it if you subscribed to receive future episodes.
