More to enjoy in the island
The "matances" or pig slaughter is an annual tradition in the island where everything gets used to prepare a variety of sausages such as "botifarró" and the classic “sobrassada”, sort of red highly seasoned sausage that can be spread over bread.
Mallorca’s gastronomy has traditionally been based on pork by-products, vegetables, fish and shellfish.
From these top quality ingredients endless delicious dishes are prepared in the island such as "frit mallorquí", the "tumbet", the "esclatassangs" toasted on fire or stuffed aubergines, not to mention the energetic "arròs brut" and "porcella rostida" accompanied by potatoes and vegetables.
During the summer you can not miss a good "trampó" accompanied by the classic "pamboli" for dinner.
The Mallorcan wines have had a growing reputation both in the island and in other parts of Spain and Europe, especially in recent years, for having a distinctive Mediterranean flavour, characteristic of the island. Mallorca has two designations of origin: DO Binissalem-Mallorca and DO Pla i Llevant as well as a geographical indentification "vino de la tierra Mallorca” or local wine.
