Press Release (ePRNews.com) - CALVIá, Spain - Feb 14, 2017 - Pioneering culinary company Mimo has opened a new location, Mimo Mallorca, a gourmet shop and tour agency on the island of Mallorca. The new venture is dedicated to celebrating the hidden authentic cuisine and incredible food products of the island and is located in the breathtaking St. Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort.
Mimo Mallorca offers a range of experiences designed to give visitors to Mallorca an authentic glimpse into the foodways of the island: a Finca & Wine evening, tours of Palma, an excursion to an ancient stone olive mill, and more. The spacious, airy gourmet shop at the St. Regis Mardavall, whose ample windows overlook palm trees and the Mediterranean sea, is full of artisan Spanish products, over 60% of which are from the Balearic Islands. A climatised custom vinoteca holds everything from local vintages to Vega Sicilia bottles. The shop also boasts a collection of premium jamón ibérico and olive oils. And, of course, the island’s best ensaïmada. All of the shop’s product have been specially curated, with lots of care and mimo, Spanish for the love you give baby—or a homemade dish. The experiences and the shop are staffed with an all-star team of locals and experts, headed by Katja Wöhr.
“We are so excited to offer a whole new range of products at Mimo Mallorca,” says Jon Warren, managing director and founder of Mimo. “There is no better way to get to know the authentic Mallorca, and all of its delicious treasures, than on one of our hand-picked experiences, which we have created with mimo.”
“We are delighted to have such an innovative gourmet and travel company within the walls of the St. Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort,” says Christian Fomm, Hotel Manager of the St. Regis Mardavall Mallorca Resort. “Mimo offers our guests the opportunity to experience the tastes of the real Mallorca, through the island’s best products, which goes hand in hand with our Michelin-starred restaurant Es Fum. Our guests have a wonderful surprise awaiting them this year with Mimo’s gourmet shop and food and wine experiences, which will help them enjoy their stay in Mallorca even more.”
Mimo Mallorca will offer a Balearic equivalent of its famous Pintxo Tasting Tour, named one of the top-10 rated food tours in the world by Trip Advisor, called Eat Palma. The two Eat Palma tours will explore the capital’s traditional and contemporary dining scene. Also on the roster are several exciting offsite experiences, including the Open-Air Rustic Dining Experience, an incredible journey to the heart of the island for a suckling pig roasted over a fire. Tastings and workshops will also be offered on the Mimo Mallorca premises with its expert staff, in English and available in German and Spanish as private tastings.
MIMO MALLORCA is the latest venture by MIMO (formerly San Sebastián Food), a pioneering food company specializing in cooking classes, gourmet retail, and culinary tourism. The team of food and wine professionals, comprised of locals, experts and foodies with an expansive knowledge base, is passionate about sharing the authentic food cultures of Spain. Founded by Englishman Jon Warren in San Sebastián, Spain, in 2009, they share the mimo, Spanish for love and care, through authentic foodie experiences. Mimo locations include Mimo San Sebastián (formerly San Sebastián Food), a cooking school, gourmet shop, and culinary tour company in San Sebastián, and Mimo Sevilla, a gourmet shop and culinary tour company in Seville.
