GASTRONOMY

GASTRONOMY

Berenjena, MenorcaMenorca is an appealing island not only for its turquoise sea, prehistoric monuments or fiestas. Menorca’s gastronomy is also part of the whole charm. The island is proud of many exquisite gastronomic treats, such as lobster, mayonnaise or tasty sweets, either prepared according to tradition or following new, modern and creative recipes.

Typical Menorcan cuisine is based on ingredients that are widely available locally. Being surrounded by the sea, fish and shellfish feature prominently on most menus and local produce includes plenty of onions, garlic, olive oil, tomatoes, potatoes, aubergines and peppers. In every restaurant you will find Escalivada (baked aubergines and peppers cut into strips and served on toast topped with anchovies).

Langosta, MenorcaTourists and visitors can find lovely spots where they can taste local gastronomy. Caldereta de langosta (a delicious lobster stew) in the fishing village of Fornells; Toast with Mahón cheese and sobrassada with honey enjoying the sunset in Binibeca; or  rack of lamb with crunchy herbs and a rosemary reduction on a summer terrace in Torret.

Please try the local fish. Delicious cap roig (rock fish), tasty mero (grouper) and wonderful doradas (sea bass). Not to forget the British inherited products such as the gin, an ingredient for many recipes, the most famous being pomada (fiesta drink made of local gin Xoriguer and lemon). Cows graze in green fields to produce the delicious Mahón cheese (guarantee of origin). Mahón cheese comes in different levels of maturity and it is used in many dishes.
