Who is Lorraine?
We are lucky to have the inside knowledge of local expert Lorraine. Originally from the UK, Lorraine has lived on Menorca for over 20 years and in that time she has built up an extensive wealth of information on the history, culture and cuisine of the island. She is what we say in Spanish “enchufada” (plugged in) and can open doors that might otherwise be closed. We first met a couple of years ago when she came on one of my cooking courses. Her enthusiasm for how the Menorcan culinary scene was blossoming piqued my interest and encouraged me to visit to discover for myself. Lorraine has a long-held interest in culinary matters and also spends her time organising specialist tours to Menorca for small groups, covering diverse subjects – food and wine, naval history, gardens, etc. Between us we have put together this very special week, staying in charming boutique hotels and sampling the very best Menorca has to offer, in terms of food, wine, unspoilt scenery and its historical links with England from the 18th century, reflected in much of its Georgian architecture, and of course the famous Menorcan gin!
All photos were taken by me.
This tour is suitable for everyone as there is nothing physically strenuous involved. No hills like Vejer!
It is a 10 minute boat ride from the mainland to Isla del Rey.
Our schedule has been arranged with best intentions and is dependent on the health and wellbeing of our hosts and sometimes on the weather. Plans can be subject to change and should any misfortune occur every effort will be made to make alternative plans.
