This year you should not miss our special celebration: the Day of the Balearic Islands. At Garden Hotels we are planning a very authentic and traditional way of honouring this day that represents the independence of our autonomous community. How? With a finger-licking special dinner!
Yes, at Garden Hotels we want you to discover the best of typical cuisine in Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza and Formentera and so, with this being said, we have planned a special event at our Cala Millor Garden Hotel. This is a meeting place for those who love gourmet cuisine, for those who know the importance of a good meal and for those who travel in order to submerge themselves in the most authentic flavours of the destination.
The cuisine of the Balearic Islands is full of variety, with local products, fish, seafood from the warm Mediterranean Sea and delicious meat farmed locally, all as the main components. Most of these dishes are made from simple recipes, where the product’s quality and freshness are key. Rice soup, paella, roasted or grilled meat, baked fish with vegetables, salads, ratatouille and vegetable casseroles. The variety is so vast that every season of the year comprehends of its own special cuisine.
At this time of the year, right in the middle of winter, you can enjoy locally-grown produce like artichokes, arroz brut (a rice dish), roast lamb, which is always organic; suckling pig, fish à la Mallorquin, grilled Cap Roig fish, ensaimada (type of pastry), cuartos (sponge cake), classic panades (pies) that are typical for Easter and of course, paella which is good for any day of the year.
In the Garden Hotels’ special gastronomic offer you can try dishes like these and many more thanks to our team of chefs who work for months creating special menus that encompass the best flavours of the islands. There are also, of course, dietary products, vegetarian dishes and dishes made specifically for those who suffer from food intolerances. All you have to do is tell us what you require and the hotel will take care of the rest.
Organise your friends getaway or gastronomic trip with your partner for the 1st March and if you hurry up, you may get the chance to stay for the bank holiday. Remember that you can enjoy special rates on rooms at Cala Millor during this time. Now you have no excuse not to spend this grand Day of the Balearic Islands with us.
Live more; live better with Garden Hotels.
