Eating typically traditional in Palma at La Cueva

Eating  typically traditional in Palma at La Cueva

One thing to remember when embarking on a dinner mission in Spain - 'Most restaurants don't open before 8'. Freaken heck though, most westerner's don't like to eat after 8. It can be a tad bit of an adjustment. Seeing as how I am programmed to have dinner quite early in the evening, I always [...]

Treating your taste buds to culinary seduction is always a sensory event not to be missed. It was a ladies do dinner day, and we weren't quite sure where to go. After gallivanting all around the city,  enjoying the epic ambiance, and of course being awesome - we needed to pick a place to wine [...]

Being fabulous in my awesome Country. Canada and me.

Being fabulous in my awesome Country. Canada and me.

Soooo, what was supposed to be a brief week pit stop in Canada from my travels to attend a blogging conference outside Toronto, ended up turning into a month of tripsing around and working my arse off.  My life always seems to have me on the go. One way or another I always find myself [...]

Palma Indulginces at the San Juan Gastromarket

Gastromarkets. These concepts are a rave around the globe at the moment, popping up all over the show. For darn good reason too. Here in Palma de Mallorca, it is just the same. The art of food is a massive focal point for foodies - gastronomy is the craze. Enjoying a meal however, does always [...]

Spontaneously, I woke up back in Spain.

As per usual Petrena style, I made the spontaneous decision to return to Spain for a bit. My other home. Palma de Mallorca, Spain. It seems I just can't stay away for that long, it drags me back. Well, in all honesty it doesn't take much dragging. Hello Palma!!    Holy man, first of all, [...]

It was one of those days where I had a craving for some fresh food and Spanish market ambiance. After gathering the troops and getting a meeting point sorted, I was off to Mercat de l'Olivar, to indulge in some fresh seafood, and in addition to that of course, some very tasty Vino. I love [...]

Did I mention I love green juice?

Did I mention I love green juice?

Yes, there is nothing quite like a good ol' green juice! For me the greener the better, but that's from growing up in the Canadian wilderness and having my grandma feeding me all sorts of plants and things as a young girl when we were in the bush for their different nutritional value's:) My palette [...]

Feeling Festive?? No is not an option;)

   Once again, the beginning of January in Palma means one brilliant thing..... It's time for the two week long Sant Sebastian fesitivites!! Basically to commemorate the life of a Roman officer who used his position to protect Christians many moons ago. He was found out and was whipped to death for it. Yet saved [...]
