THIS coming Sunday, Palma's wharf is to host a public tasting of dishes prepared with catches that are brought in regularly by local fishermen, spearheading a campaign aimed at promoting consumption. Organisers hope to tantalise some 3'000 people into trying red bream cooked in three different ways: on a flat grill, flambéed, or in a sauce. The dishes, which will have been prepared in advance, can be purchased by the public at the cost of 5 euros per portion. The tasting will run from 12 noon to 5pm and intends to give a higher profile to the nutritional benefits of this fish that has traditionally held an important place on the tables of Majorcan households. However, it is reported that fewer red bream and gerret (picarel) are being purchased in recent times due to “change in consumer purchasing patterns”. With people spending less time in the kitchen, Sunday's event will endeavour to show what can be achieved using local produce. A video will show what happens to the fish from the moment of their capture until they arrive at fish shops.
