THE Majorcan Food Fair opened its doors to the public yesterday at the exhibition area in Palma. All those interested in learning about the secrets of the traditional Majorcan food and drink will be able to attend the show until the 18 March when the fair closes.

Entrance tickets cost 3.50 euros and this includes free food and drink tasters, as well as numerous other offerings at the show. For 2.50 euros visitors can also sample some of the dishes presented by the restaurants, with a change of menu every day.

This gastronomic event, now in its 21st year, has been financed by the Balearic Government (55 percent) and costs around 220'000 euros to run.
After the success of last year's fair, this time there are more live presentations, where visitors can see how some of the dishes are prepared.
Furthermore, there will be a raffle of the dishes made at the demonstrations at the end of each show day. In addition, there will be cocktail demonstrations that pay special attention to Minorcan liquors.

The opening times of the food fair are in two sessions, between 12.30pm and 4pm, and then at 7.30pm until 11pm. Twenty restaurants, four cooking schools, six bakeries, 10 wine cellars, three liquor manufacturers and 27 companies related to the food and drink sector will be present at this year's show.

The opening was presided by Mayor Catalina Cirer, president of the Council of Majorca Maria Antonia Munar and commerce minister Josep Joan Cardona.
