The “gató” is a cake that Majorcans reserve for special occasions, a sweet treat to enjoy at family and friends’ gatherings. And a celebration of the best local produce: almonds, citrus, and dairy. It is traditionally served with a scoop of almond ice cream, but I think adding a sharp citrus curd works very well in balancing the level of sweetness. Adding some salted caramelised almonds in the ice cream is another slight departure from the t...

If there was a scale to measure recipes for their ratio between effort and satisfaction, this would be up there in my list. These nutty soft biscuits are fool-proof, ready to bake in no longer than 5 minutes, yet incredibly delicious and satisfying.  One of those go-to recipes when you are pressed for time and want to impress your guests. They’re not particularly good looking, resembling small rocks, but the unevenness of shape and colour is...

Originally from Mallorca and traditionally eaten for breakfast or for 'merienda' (afternoon snack)

If you have been in Mallorca, you have probably heard or even tasted “Coques de verdures” a flat dough topped with seasonal vegetables.

Usually made with pork fat, but I love using flavourful extra virgin olive oil instead, as it makes a more tender crust.

They are sold in nearly every bakery and are often eaten on the go while standing up in the bakery, as a breakfast on the way to work, or as an afternoon snack on the way home or after schoo...

I’ve got many things to thank my late grandma for; my passion for food being right at the top of the list. As I mentioned in my previous post, I was very lucky to eat her wholesome and tasty food for many years, and also learn a few culinary tips. One of those memories that will always stay with me is learning how to make the traditional Asturian rice pudding. Asturias is traditionally known for its dairy farms so it is only natural that a p...

Hello there. It’s only fair that I use my first blog entry to introduce myself, and explain a little how Origins | Food Club came to reality.

Although I am a Classical musician by trade, food has always been a passion of mine. I was very lucky to grow up in a family where there was always freshly prepared food on the table. To be fair, when I was a child (not that long ago!), ready-meals were not an option, at least you could not find them an...

Although I am a Classical musician by trade, food has always been a passion of mine. I was very lucky to grow up in a family where there was always freshly prepared food on the table. To be fair, when I was a child (not that long ago!), ready-meals were not an option, at least you could not find them anywhere in the not-so-urban part of Spain where I was born: Asturias.
