Welcome in my blog !
First let me tell you that, as it is the translation of a French blog, I use the metric system for my measurements and all the temperatures are given in Celsius !

New category: I tasted it for you. The idea is to pick up random products that are unknow to me, to taste them, cook them, describe them and give my opinion on them.

Enjoy !


A plate from Majorca : Trampo and Pa amb oli

Today I present to you 2 recipes I discovered while living in Majorca, which is, by the way, a wonderful place. Both are very popular recipes, and easy to cook as well.


It is a very typical salad. It would also be a good starter.

Ingredients (for 3-4 people)
2 green bell peppers
3-4 tomatoes
1 onion
Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper

Cut everything in dices, mix together and prepare a vinaigrette with the olive oil and the vinegar. Serve it chilled.


It’s THE dish you serve when you have guests. The way you serve it is self-explanatory: everything is put separately on the table, and everyone prepares his spa amb oli the way he likes. Ideal when vegetarians and non vegetarians have to eat together! You have to prepare everything just before you eat, otherwise the oil will soak the bread, and it is not so tasty anymore.

Ingredients (count 2 slices per person)
Sliced bread
Cooked ham (in slices)
Sliced cheese (like Swiss cheese)
1 tomato
Olive oil and pepper

In a plate, put the slice of bread. Slice the tomato, and place it on the bread. Poor a trickle of olive oil, salt and pepper. Put a slice of cheese, then roll the ham and put it on the top. Just eat!

I really like this dish; it is very simple, but delicious. Typical of the Mallorquin way of being, I think. For the record, in Catalan, pa amb oli simply means bread with oil!

To go with both dishes, I prepared a cream with creamy goat cheese and walnut oil. Not at all mallorquin, but delicious.

Bon appétit !!!
