Peccata Minuta Lloseta
It's a public holiday in the Balearic Islands on 1st March which is great news for everyone who desperately needs a day off work (ie me) and even better news if you are in Mallorca because, as part of the celebrations, there's another brilliant tapas evening planned by the Chefs(in) people. They promote the Balearic Islands as a gastro-destination through events in which the top chefs provide some of the best food you can get at very reasonable prices.
On 28th February, remember it's a day off the following day, they're holding one of their fabulous Peccata Minuta shindigs in the Teatre de Lloseta (Carrer es Pou Nou 1, Lloseta) where nine of the islands' top chefs will gather to show off their skills to provide gourmet food in miniature in one of the best tapa fests Mallorca has.
Starting at 20:00, guests who bag one of the limited number of tickets priced at €40 will be able to enjoy eight tapas, two glasses of wine and a cocktail courtesy of the following super chefs from 3 of the 4 Balearic Islands;
Felip Llufriu – Mon Restaurant (Ciutadella – Menorca)
Joan Canals – Ulisses (Ciutadella – Menorca)
Joan Marc Garcías – Joan Marc Restaurant (Inca – Mallorca)
José Miguel Bonet – Es Ventall (Sant Antoni de Portmany – Eivissa)
Marga Coll – Miceli/Arrels (Selva – Mallorca)
Miquel Gelabert – Can March (Manacor – Mallorca)
Santi Taura – Restarurant Santi Taura (Lloseta – Mallorca)
Silvia Anglada – Es Tast de na Sílvia (Ciutadella – Menorca)
Victor Bayo – Alcaufar Vell (Sant Lluís – Menorca)
I'm excited to see a long time friend of mine, Jose Miguel (photo) from Es Ventall in San Antonio Ibiza taking part for the first time. He's a young chef who works in his family's restaurant where they still use a wood burning stove and grow much of their own produce on their land and has introduced a modern take on traditional 'rural' cuisine. He recently represented the Balearics at Madrid Fusion and has spent time working in the kitchens of some highly renowned restaurants including El Celler de Can Roca, the best in the world!
