I love strolling through Palma, the capital of Mallorca, strolling through its narrow streets in the oldest neighborhoods and discovering historical, typical or singular businesses. One day a few years ago I found a very special place called Es Fornet de sa soca, a bakery-pastry shop whose slogan is "Artesania gastronòmica activa".
The place is endearing, it is located on Sant Jaume street number 23, an emblematic street of the old town of Palma. When you enter this small place it seems that you go back to an old traditional Mallorcan place for many years. Everything perfectly decorated, taking care of each one of the numerous details.
But the most important of the "Fornet" are its products, carefully made with first quality raw materials and natural, such as vegetables, eggs, milk, jams ... and indigenous flours that make each product an excellent product and a delight for the palate. So much so that they say that their raison d'être is: The commitment to the culture and identity of Mallorca with health and with the land.
Within the extensive and varied amount of products we find: Different types of breads, salted cocas of various tastes, ensaimadas, cocarrois, sweet cocas, cakes, pies, empanadas, sandwiches of Mallorcan sobrasada ... and endless of all other exquisite things that should be tried.
In the Christmas season they also make homemade nougat of many different tastes and typical Christmas sweets.
It is a place that if you visit Mallorca, specifically Palma you can not lose. I would say it is a must for lovers of good food.
In his commitment to the culinary culture of Mallorca, Tomeu Arbona, owner of Fornet de sa soca, has presented his book entitled "Cuina tradicional de Mallorca. Original Intimitat" where the most traditional recipes of Mallorcan cuisine are collected.
