Palma de Mallorca, the picturesque capital of the Balearic Islands, is gearing up to welcome food enthusiasts from around the world to the highly anticipated “TaPalma” Gastronomic Festival this November. This celebration of culinary excellence includes the renowned tapas and cocktail contest, which will take place on the 20th November, as well as a gastronomic route from the 22nd until the 26th of November. The tapas routes around the city are perfect for discovering some of Palma´s most unique neighbourhoods, from Santa Catalina or Portixol to Paseo Maritimo. Furthermore, the festival has created a “TaPalma” app which visitors can download for further information, guides and even a tapa catalogue.

For its 6th edition at the venue this year, there will be three different categories: best tapa; best cocktail; and best themed tapa. Chef Igor Rodrigez will be leading the judging panel together with the renowned chef José Cortés, president of The Association of Affiliated Chefs in the Balearic Islands.
