Lindy and her home-made lemon curd made with lemons from her garden. | Majorca, Mallorca. At Home Together
I am happy and proud to announce that Majorca is pulling together through this awful period, how do I know? Because the streets are extremely quiet and everyone is at home and, it would seem, online: we are seeing an incredible sharing of home grown knowledge and experience through social media. Facebook, something which we have often been told to reduce our time on, is now a platform where we can find a vital support, especially for individuals living on their own, people who might be suffering from anxiety (I would say that is probably most of us right now) and others who need structure and things to look forward to throughout their day. I, supported by the Majorca Daily Bulletin, have responded to this need by founding a Facebook group called Majorca Mallorca, At Home Together (https://www.facebook.com/groups/MajorcaMallorca/ ) where many talented chefs, musicians, gardeners, magicians, entertainers, teachers, and other professionals and enthusiasts are sharing their knowledge online through live and recorded tutorials. Thursday and Friday this week saw us making sourdough bread, naan bread, curry, chicken, planting out seeds, learning how to sew masks, participate in boxing, yoga, pilates, and cardio, enjoy live music and quizzes and most importantly keep each other company, sane and entertained during self isolation.
