Today I will show you the original paella recipe from Spain. For this great dish I went hiking and went on a pilgrimage. I came to Lucus, the sacred forest of early times and from the 13th century the first Marian shrine of the Balearic Islands.
The spiritual centre of Mallorca is the sanctuary of Lluc with the Black Madonna statue. It is a religious centre in the middle of the lush nature of the Serra de Tramuntana. The monastery is a world cultural heritage, for me personally a magical place with an incredible, positive vibration.
The restaurant Sa Fonda is located on the left side of the monastery. It offers its day guests and pilgrims original Spanish cuisine. In the kitchen there is chef Manuel who conjures up the most delicious traditional dishes of Mallorcan cuisine.
Now join me on a virtual, spiritual journey, which ends with a good meal. Have fun!
Santuari means sanctuary, Lluc was already known in pre-Christian times as Lucus – holy forest. In the region there are burial caves and excavation sites from the Talaiotic period. The Talaiotikum dates back to 125 BC.
Here are the pictures from LLUC, the destination is beautiful! To the website click here

2. How I learned the Secrets of an Original Spanish Paella Pan…
During my visit to Mallorca I wanted to taste an authentic paella pan and to learn the secrets of paella with seafood and fish from a Spanish cook.
Fortunately I found this dish on the menu of the restaurant Sa Fonda and could also get to know Manuel the chef.
Cooking as a spiritual experience. The inspiration comes when you study the menu!
