Ice Cream Van Mallorca, Spain Events & Weddings

Love bites ♡

It’s hungry work attending a wedding.

Feeding your guests well is the key to them enjoying your day. Here are some ideas on how to keep them fulfilled.

Traditional wedding breakfast

This is still the most popular option for catering for your day guests, usually consisting of a meat and two veg option. Ask the venue to create your menu around ingredients that are in season or locally grown produce.

Mallorcan Ensaimada Dessert Events

Mallorcan pastries and desserts

Ask a Mallorcan what foodstuff best represents the island and they are likely to reply, the ensaïmada, Spain’s answer to the croissant. This versatile, light, fluffy-textured spiral pastry is dusted with icing sugar and comes in a variety of sizes, from bite-sized portions to the cake-sized ones you see people lugging on to planes. Locals eat ensaïmadas at breakfast, spread them with sobrassada as a savoury snack or serve them stuffed with nuts and fruits and covered in cream a dessert. Other popular sweet pastries are bunyols (doughnuts) and robiols and crespells (both particularly popular at Easter).

Mallorcan fish and seafood

Seafood is, not surprisingly, enormously popular on Mallorca. There is a local fishing industry, but it’s small and demand is such that most fresh fish is imported, usually from Galicia. A classic Balearic dish is caldereta de llagosta, and originating from Fornells in the north of Menorca. It’s simple but stupendously rich and flavoursome spiny lobster stew, made with tomatoes and onions. The lobster for this dish is imported for most of the year, but if you order if from June to August you could be in luck and get a local creature: this is the legal fishing period, when you’ll see lobster traps in all the fishing ports.

Balearic Cuisine

La cuina mallorquina has its roots firmly in rustic traditions, with a sprinkling of Arab influences, and is based around the classic trinity of Mediterranean ingredients – olive oil, garlic tomatoes. Much of the islands’ cuisine derives from ‘peasant’ food – local, simple and fresh. Unlike in much of southern Spain, where frying over high heat is ubiquitous, dishes here tend to be slow-cooked at low temperatures in a shallow casserole dish known as a greixonera.
