Tapalma kicks off today
Gastronomy, one of the great bets for all-year tourism, is the theme of the week, as from Wednesday to Sunday the TaPalma tapas (and cocktails) route returns. This year’s is the seventeenth TaPalma, an event designed to position Mallorca, and Palma most obviously, as the “nerve centre” of Spanish gastronomy.
The route consists of over 30 establishments, some with just tapas or cocktails, others with both. What these places have on offer, it has to be said, is truly mouth-watering. How about, for example, annatto cannoli with caramelised onion purée, smoked bresaola, mushroom flan, fennel, pickled cucumber, a Quely biscuit dough, cornmeal, chicken broth and sherry vinegar?
And to wash it down? Aromatic gin infused with Mallorcan figs, lime juice, ramallet tomato marmalade, soda and a top of thousand-flower honey foam, fig garnish and mint.
All the various offerings can be found on the website. Look and salivate!
