Who invented take-away?

Take away food in Mallorca: we have a few suggestions for you

Mallorca's restaurants are still closed. It is still uncertain when they will be allowed to reopen completely or at least in part, for example outdoors. For all those who have neither the time nor the inclination to cook for themselves, take-away and delivery options remain. In the past, pizza and sushi bars were primarily known for this, but the range has now expanded and improved enormously. Even star chefs are very active. You could get used to this, especially since many restaurants would like to continue offering this expansion of their culinary offer after Corona. The second aspect that speaks for the offers: You help the restaurants to survive. We talked to three chefs about the "new" line of business and recommend a small selection of other restaurants.

Eat vacuum cooking

Estiven Arráez founded his cooking school Eat Vacuum Cooking in Palma in the summer of 2017 and successfully offered a large number of courses, some with guest chefs. But Corona has put an end to that for the time being. Instead of putting your hands on your lap, Arráez launched a take-away and delivery offer from May 2020 that is a little different from most of the others. Because one of his core competencies is vacuum cooking. He also trains professional chefs in this.

Aromata restaurant

The star chef Andreu Genestra is currently mainly active in his Aromata restaurant in Palma, where he runs his new, quasi-mobile restaurant, which he has given a catchy name with “AGo”. “Resigning or demonstrating doesn't help, you have to be creative . " For the new range, Genestra has created dishes that both reflect its cooking philosophy - the best, local products if possible - and are also suitable for transport and heating on the home stove, in the oven or in the microwave. “To do this, you have to take various aspects into account and make compromises. It's not just the packaged dishes of the Aromata, our offer is something new. "

There are no crispy crusts, for example, because they would not survive delivery times, no matter how fast. “Some of them are popular, traditional dishes, but they are prepared with a special kick or in a special combination. For example, we combined the ensaladilla rusa with prawns, a good country chicken is seasoned in a special way and has a truffle puree as a side dish, or the popular cannelloni filled with chicken come with a tuna topping and also with truffles. "(Prices: 14–24 euros). Genestra's offer is not only popular with previous regular guests, it has also won many new customers.
