Easter Foods to Relish in Palma
Easter in Palma de Mallorca is an exciting time with incredible processions, joyful services, and food. It's just the season to relish delectable Easter foods and enjoy a festive time. Make your Easter vacation in Palma more special with these mouth-watering dishes.
Easter is a wonderful time to try panades (English pies) that are traditionally filled with lamb meat, fish, chicken, cuttlefish, or peas. It is the most popular pie - and during the Easter week, one may even find double the size with a rich variety stuffed with exquisite fillings. There are creative ways of baking the dish, and guests may find a sweeter version instead of a savoury filling with orange marmalade or medlar marmalade.
Those craving to tickle their taste buds must try Cocarrois, a traditional Spanish dish one cannot resist. Made with flour, olive oil, and egg yolks - the filling is typically made with vegetables such as cauliflower florets, scallions, and Swiss chard - and seasoned with raisins and pine nuts. The lightly browned pastries are served warm and make a delicious treat.
The robiols (or rubiols) are traditional custard-shaped pastries that are customarily prepared for Easter. The baked crispy sweet has a juicy and sweet filling, such as apricot jam or quince jam, among others. The special dessert can be best enjoyed with a hot cup of chocolate.
Yet another Easter delicacy to look out for is crespells. They are cookies (biscuits) that are traditionally made during the Easter season. The finger-licking sweet pastries come in various sizes and shapes and are eaten throughout the year; however, they find a special place during the Easter celebration.
