A few months ago, Pino and Isa “planted ” themselves in the centre of Madrid with a healthy project: an appetising vegan food delivery service. They offer pizzas, tacos, burgers, salads... Most of their suppliers are organic, and you won’t find a trace of animal protein on the menu.
These two young businesswomen sprouted in my life some time ago. Youthful, bursting with energy and eager to change our eating habits and life cycle. Their healthy original recipes have won me over.
Both have ties to Menorca and understand the importance of using local produce, and together they’ve designed us a fresh salad, ideal for the summer months and loaded with island ingredients: rocket, cucumber and baby radishes grown by Net on the Son Aparets Nou farm, David’s carrots from Sa Torre de’n Quart, onions cultivated by Isidro at Son Terí Nou, and finally a hint of Antoine’s mint from the Binibo farm. All these ingredients (and many more) can be purchased via the Menorcan cooperative Sa Cooperativa des Camps, and we love supporting local producers!
The Hotel Cristine Bedfor works with the Menorca Preservation Fund to promote the consumption of local produce as part of the “Dream Global, Eat Local” project, so naturally the majority of the ingredients come from local Menorcan farmers.
The result is an authentic island salad, a marriage of superb Menorcan produce and expertise, crafted by loving hands and seasoned with the dressing of deep friendship and affection. To us they’re the “Plantarse Girls”, and we’re so glad they’ve put down roots at the Hotel Cristine Bedfor in Menorca.
