Gorgeous bread at Forn Pes de sa Palla

All breads at Forn Pes de sa Palla are made with their own sourdough, which comes from organic grapes and respects the times and temperatures of natural fermentation.The flour used is grounded by stone and the ingredients are Km 0.
Mallorca sea salt, tomatoes, olives and virgin olive oil of arbequina and koroneiki varieties that come from the organic farm of Esment Alimentació. Produced in a traditional way with an innovative and quality result. They are breads that smell, taste and last. Forn Pes de sa Palla belongs to Esment Alimentació.
A delicious place.
Forn Pes de sa Palla has a history linked to the world of bread. It occupies the same place where during the 1940s Rafael Vaquer Juliá’s bread factory was located. Today it is next to the Cafè Pes de sa Palla, the first restaurant managed by Esment Alimentació more than 20 years ago. At that time, the Cafè was a pioneering initiative at European level in the insertion of people with intellectual disabilities.
As in the rest of Esment Alimentació projects, Forn Pes de sa Palla is formed and gives socio-labor opportunities to people with intellectual disabilities. Their activities related to gastronomy and food allow the incorporation of people throughout the process and their participation contributes the highest added value to the product.
The team incorporates technology that facilitates the processes: fermentation, cooking, refrigeration, maintenance … The team, formed by 22 people (16 training), is directed by the cook and trainer, Óscar Martínez.The consultant of the global project is the chef and Best Artisan Master of Spain winner, Oriol Balaguer.

Taronja Negre Mar

In Mallorca the sea is the landscape, the air, the sounds and above all the flavors. The Mediterranean cuisine is food and products, but above all, it is a lifestyle and a way to sit at the table. Dishes made with gentleness and seasonal products are placed in the middle of the table and shared by all.

 

ORANGE Cheerful, fun and sociable color. The color with more aromas and flavors.

 

TURQUOISE Refreshing and relaxing color, and full of creativity.

TASTE TARONJA

Our cuisine emanates from the Mediterranean Sea and just like the sea, it makes us travel around the world to discover new products and flavors. If turquoise is the color of creativity, our gastronomy looks for tradition, history, character, but above all, our sights set on the future. This is the cuisine that we want to convey. Authentic and genuine gastronomy.

ENVIRONMENT

The turquoise and blue sea, the boats, the fish… Our restaurant is soaked by the Mediterranean Sea. Taronja Negre Mar is located within the Club de Mar de Palma, just off the boats that are moored in the harbor. On the seafront and with stunning views over the bay of Palma, it is an oasis in the city.

 

TN CELEBRATIONS

If you are looking to celebrate a party, a birthday, a wedding, a communion … Celebrations TN offers you ideas for both large and small group events. Several areas are available, as well as our home delivery service. If life is meant to be shared, celebrations even more so.

Enjoy the little things in Mallorca.

Jean Reno,  Laia Costa and Mallorca star in the short film  ‘The Little things’ by Estrella Damm beer. Reno plays a great actor who is shooting a James Bond explosions tuxedo kind of film.

“Las pequeñas cosas”. Estrella Damm.

 

 

He has some difficulty with a phrase that he does not get to say with a straight face because he feels it is self-help booklet material. With their constant interruptions the shooting stops. He must stay on the island for four days until another model ship arrives so they can repeat his explosion scene and line. This forced break spending four days in Mallorca will end up with him enjoying, despite his reticence, the benefits of the island.

“Las pequeñas cosas”. Estrella Damm.

 

 

Since 2009 Estrella Damm has been betting big on the concept of the Mediterranean personality of their product. A lifestyle, culture, gastronomy and way of understanding life. This time presents two emotionally opposing characters: a sour actor and a cheerful tourist guide  who eventually find some common ground.

“Las pequeñas cosas”. Estrella Damm.

 

Shot in several locations in the Balearic Islands, mainly in Majorca, with the soundtrack, Those Little Things by Catalan composer Ramon Mirabet its highlights are: el camí de Sa Figuera (Sóller), Cala Tuent (Escorca) and Caló des Màrmols (Santanyí).

The beautiful nature of those locations and local cuisine soon sweeten the actor’s personality. After a tour of the Serra de Tramuntana, a day of snorkeling and delicious fresh local fish and seafood … Who could manage to stay angry?

He concludes: “Thank you for these days, you have reminded me that the best there is in life is enjoying the little things”. There is no doubt that Majorca is one of those places in the world where you soon learn that few things bring us greater joy than a good climate, nice food and friends to share it all.
