Gastronomy Routes

Menorca’s gastronomy tradition has been handed down orally from generation to generation, remaining loyal to its origins and embodying the essence of the local character. We are a straightforward, easygoing people and we know how to enjoy life and the island’s bounty.
In Menorca people still value traditional food and they love preparing dishes using seasonal produce. For some years now, the island's own cooking style has been experiencing something of a comeback, a new golden era, with product-focused gastronomy events, quality guarantee marks, innovative techniques and brand new ingredients.
Menorcan cooking has recovered its prestige and its apparent humility hides touches of genius, a legacy of the many civilisations that have inhabited the island. The fact that it is surrounded by the sea, with scarce natural resources, has left an indelible mark on its gastronomy. For centuries, islanders cooked with what they had, making use of the food they could get from the land and from the sea. They made a virtue out of necessity, giving free rein to their imaginations and producing fantastic dishes from just a few ingredients. Many of the delicious dishes enjoyed by visitors to Menorca are based on food that the island’s fishermen would have improvised while they were out at sea, using fish they had caught themselves.
The Gastronomy Route gives visitors the chance to find, taste and buy local products, and to have the fascinating experience of touring some of the facilities where they are made. The Route is divided into four parts: the Wine Route, the Cheese Route, the Traditional Recipes Route and the Seafaring Gastronomy Route.
