Traditional cuisine, native products, local wine and great taste.

Formentera’s typical cuisine is closely linked to the traditional way of life, strongly influenced by the link with the sea and rainfed agriculture. It is characterised by an almost absolute dependence on local products, due to the isolation of the Pityusic islands.

This shortage of products, combined with creativity and the use of high quality produce (such as fish), has given rise to traditional recipes such as: the farmer’s salad (with Peix sec (dried fish)), Frit de polp (fried octopus), Sofrit pagès (with meat and potatoes), Calamars a la bruta (fried squid in its own ink) or Bullit de Peix (fish stew with potatoes).

The most characteristic sweets or desserts are Flaó (fresh cheese cake with mint), les Orelletes (aniseed sweet) and Greixonera (ensaimada pudding).
