In our aim to introduce the gastronomy of Majorca, some time ago Gran Isla Hotels talked about Majorcan ensaimada, one of the most popular traditional pastries on the island, but now, we want to deal with another product: mushrooms.
One of the most common seasonal products in Majorca is the mushroom. Picking mushrooms is a very popular activity in autumn. October and November are the ideal months to go to the woods in search of the best mushrooms. On Sundays, it is usual to see how locals and tourists hike a little and spend the morning looking for mushrooms in the shady valleys of the Sierra. Although they become the main ingredient in the menus of the most important restaurants all over the island, locals also use them to cook at home. The star varieties are the girgolas and the esclatasangs, they appear in many traditional recipes together with Majorcan sobrasada, a piece of cheese or ham, which result in a flavoured dish.
Majorcan gastronomy is very rich, so if you are travelling to this idyllic island in autumn, don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy this gastronomic experience. At Gran Isla Hotels restaurants you will find many dishes with mushrooms as the main ingredient, which are an unforgettable experience for the most demanding palates. Tradition and innovation meet to become many tasty dishes with the personal touch of our chefs.
Village to village visitors can find markets full of colours, shapes and flavours and the combination of all results in the delicious cuisine of the island. An interesting market with mushrooms as the protagonist is the Mercat Gastronòmic del Bolet in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, with a wide programme of activities such as show cooking, conferences, workshops, masters guided by the best local chefs, food trucks and much more for both adults and children.
