Full description
Even if Mallorca’s cuisine seems at first glance to be alike the Spanish, it isn’t. The islanders have their own genuine "Cuina Mallorquina" that consists of diverse products from the Mediterranean island, which was influenced over time by foreign rulers such as the Romans and the Moors. The island’s cuisine is simple, hearty, and full of flavor. Cooking the Mallorcan way means using fresh local ingredients and taking great care with their preparation.
Your Food Hopping tour is like a multi-course meal: you experience a new location and taste a different food or drink specialty with each course - accompanied by amusing anecdotes from the capital of the Baleares.

Along the way, you will meet a guardian of Mallorcan baking traditions who explores lost historical recipes and breathes new life into almost forgotten local delicacies with organic ingredients. Enjoy a delicious savory pasty, prepared in a way which has remained unchanged for many generations. Then head to a family-owned bodega, which has enjoyed a reputation over 75 years for serving the best tapas and "variats" from all over Mallorca. Like Errol Flynn and many other celebrity guests in the past, you will sample one of the house specialities that has made the traditional Bodega a gastronomic icon in Palma.

Hidden away in the middle of the old town labyrinth is a small family-run Mallorcan institution. When winding your way through the narrow lanes, your Food Hopping guide will show you wonderful covered courtyards that recall Palma’s golden age with their morbid charm. After listening to stories of power, fate, and family feuds, you experience the sweet side of life in Palma with a home-made creamy refreshment. At another stop, you experience a true taste explosion in Elena’s shop where sobrasada meets orange blossom beer. You can discover regional fruit at the market hall, enjoy a sparkling cava inside a historic palace, taste paella mallorquina from Palmas no. 1 rice expert, and much, much more.
