Thinking about drinking? Read on!
Ever feel the hot day is starting to chafe you on the neck, driving you to ever
more present--and dangerous-- thoughts of drinking?
One of our group members suggests trying a uniquely local gastronomic remedy to
ward off those thoughts. "Rush to the nearest panaderia (bakery) and order a
toasted "Mallorca" with butter inside. The bigger, the better.
Mallorcas are a well known local pastry, inspired by a pastry Spaniards brought
from the Canary island of--you guessed it--Mallorca. Mallorcas are a sweet
bread, usually covered with copious amounts of confectioner's sugar.
Chase a mallorca with "malta", a type of soft drink. It is a carbonated malt
beverage, meaning it is brewed from barley, hops, and water much like beer; corn
and caramel color may also be added.
Malta is non-alcoholic. It is similar in color to stout (dark brown) but is
very sweet, generally described as tasting like molasses. Unlike beer, ice is
often added to malta when consumed.
These are rich foods, but the caloric intake can be forgiven if it helps
prevent a slip!
