Majorcan recipes: ‘crespells’, ‘robiols’ and ‘panades’

We really love this time of the year on the island. Easter stands for local traditions, for celebrations, for some very much needed family-time and for enjoying the little things with the people you love the most.

As we’ve already told you on our ‘Plan your Easter holidays’ article, the Easter celebrations in Mallorca start on Palm Sunday. There are tons of processions and parades all over the island.

And there are three gastronomic Majorcan highlights getting all the attention all over Easter here on the island: we’re talking about ‘panades’ and ‘crespells’. If you have tried any of these delicious Majorcan products, you’ll be happy to read that we’re sharing our authentic recipes with all of you today!
