2022 has been Menorca’s year of recognition as a European Region of Gastronomy. 2023 is the year you should discover its delights for yourself

If it’ food you’re after, and we assume you definitely will be, then Menorca’s sustainable credentials take centre stage in its gastronomy sector, thanks to its ‘slow food’ ethos which encourages the use of local produce.

For a small island, Menorca offers a lot of local specialities, including brilliant gin, cured sausage (sobrasada) to be slathered on toasted bread, Mahón cheese, mayonnaise and organic olive oils and wines.

Chiperones, baby squid deep fried are an absolute must and any dish of rice will contain superb seafood freshly caught.

Getting there could not be easier. Until March 2023, Vueling Airlines will offer twice weekly direct flights between London Gatwick and Menorca.
