    The seafaring legacy of Formentera

Products of the earth in Formentera

Embark on a gastronomic journey around the island of Formentera. With a perfect combination of tradition, quality and flavour, this little Mediterranean gem will win you over from the first mouthful. The typical cuisine of Formentera is closely linked to the traditional way of life that is influenced by the sea and rain fed farming. Creativity and the use of high quality products have given rise to traditional dishes like Frit de polp (fried octopus), i (with meat and potatoes), Calamars a la bruta (squid fried in its own ink) and Bullit de Peix (fish stew with potatoes) and ensalada payesa with Peix sec (dried fish). Formentera's culinary treasure is "peix sec", a centuries-old tradition that consists of drying different types of fish in the sun. This ancient method of preservation gives the fish a unique flavour and texture, ideal for flavouring the typical island dishes. Formentera is known for its salt industry, a natural product obtained from its salt flats. This salt has a delicate texture and unique taste, enhances the flavours of any dish, and is an essential ingredient in local gastronomy. And don’t miss Formentera's artisan cheese, made from goat's or sheep's milk, with a smooth, creamy texture. The most typical sweets and desserts are the delicious Flaó (fresh cheese cake with mint), les Orelletes (aniseed sweets) and Greixonera (ensaimada pudding). A real treat for a sweet tooth!
