Vegetarians used to get a pretty rough deal eating out on Mallorca, but things have improved immensely for those who choose not to eat meat or fish (and also for vegans). It’s a far cry from our first experience – in 2004 – of taking some island-visiting veggie friends out for dinner. The two Mallorcan women who ran the coastal village restaurant we visited had always been friendly and helpful in the past and, as […]

The day has arrived when foodies on Mallorca can find out what’s on offer at the new Mercado Gastronómico San Juan. Palma de Mallorca’s first market of its kind echoes similar projects in cities like Madrid, Barcelona, Berlin, and others. It’s a place where you find stalls selling different types of cuisine, which you can take away, eat on the terraces outside, or within the beautifully designed market – perching on stools or standing at […]

Last night we were among the many tapas fans at the latest Peccata Minuta event, organised by Chefs(in) in Palma de Mallorca.

Being British is cool right now. At least it is at Spanish department store chain El Corte Inglés, which has just launched its ‘GREAT British Festival’. All things British feature in this promotion, and they include food products. To kick the event off in fine style, Majorca Daily Bulletin collaborated with Palma ‘s Avenidas’ branch of the department store and had top British chef Marc Fosh (one of their columnists) do a showcooking event using some of […]

Simply Fosh is now known as Marc Fosh I am a big fan of Marc Fosh – the amiable Londoner who became the first British chef in Spain to have his cuisine recognized with a Michelin star. He was working at Reads Hotel on Mallorca at the time, and we went there quite a few times (for birthdays and anniversaries) while he was at the helm in the kitchen. He left Reads, and the star, to open his […]
