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 pastry-bakery whose slogan is "Artesania gastronòmica activa".
The place It 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 thing of the "Fornet" are its products, carefully elaborated with raw materials of first quality and natural, such as vegetables, eggs, milk, jams ... and native flours that make each product an excellent product and a delight for the palate. So much so that they say 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 a host of other things all exquisite They should be tasted.
In the Christmas season they also make handmade nougat of many different tastes and typical Christmas sweets.
It's a place that if you visit Mallorca, specifically Palma, you can not miss it. I would say it is a must for lovers of good food.
In its 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.
