30 01 2009
Majorca has long been renowned for its fabulous cuisine, with its fresh seafood naturally featuring high on several tourists' lists of their favourite things about the island.
Now its famed local produce will become the subject of a TV documentary to be screened across Europe, according to one local newspaper.
The programme, called Or Liquid, focuses on the Majorcan 'liquid gold', the locally produced olive oil which forms the basis of so much of the Balearic island's fantastic cuisine.
A spokesman for the environment ministry told the Majorca Daily Bulletin that the documentary had been shown to the minister for agriculture and fisheries before its release.
He added that it will be made available on DVD.
Recently, the Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow travelled to Majorca to make her own TV programme about the culinary delights of the island.
The episode, screened on the UKFood channel, saw her teaming up with a local chef to enjoy fresh grilled shellfish by the seafront.
