Traditional Mallorcan foods tend to have a fair dedicated to them and the llonguet, a long, crusty roll, is no exception.

Various bakeries will be showing their wares filled with sausages, sobrasada, cheese, anchovies, prawns and more in the Palma district of Es Pillari on Sunday 28 April.

There will also be stalls with other interesting handicraft products.

Show cooking

A show cooking session by top chefs will be demonstrating how to get the most out of a llonguet at 11 am. Proceeds from the sale of the resulting rolls are going to the GlutenFree Association.

Alice in Wonderland

The Fair will also be accompanied by pipers from Arenal, shows and street artists @circostromboli, with characters from Alice in Wonderland, who will be roaming the streets at 11:30 am and 1 pm.

Es Pillarí is  close to both the airport and a district known as “Las Meravelles”, which may have been the inspiration for Alice and her friends to visit.
