Welcome to the colourful world of Villa Wesco Mallorca. Anyone with even the slightest interest in cooking and entertaining finds pleasure at this new brand experience centre in Santa Maria del Camí.
The iconic German homeware company’s handsome Mallorca mansion location couldn’t be more different from the first centre, housed in a grand Wilhelminian-style building in Germany’s Arnsberg, yet the concept remains the same. Varied cooking workshops, show-cooking events and shopping opportunities run in parallel, creating a dynamic hub with passion for food and design at its heart. It is an idea that has enjoyed huge success in Germany, attracting tens of thousands of visitors each year, and the same is beginning to happen here.
Directors Ana Lado and Hendrik Neuhaus took the popular step of appointing ‘Top Chef’ winner Marcel Ress head of the cooking school. Wesco Cooking by Ress gives guests a first-hand insight into the mind and secrets of a famous chef, who passes his skill and enthusiasm to each individual or group he coaches and later, eats with.
“In the kitchen everything is possible” says Ress. “Our cooking classes and show-cooking events are a trip through five continents.”
No expense was spared converting the historical Santa Maria buildings into a prime spot for browsing, learning, tasting and meeting. The dedicated show space, housed on different floors of the main house, is a fitting tribute to one of Europe’s most popular manufacturers of kitchen accessories.
Each household design item – from classic kitchen bin to charming egg cup – is stamped with distinctive Wesco style. Aluments, the company’s own designer furniture range, is viewed in the equally appealing neighbouring building.
Villa Wesco’s gorgeous garden and large sun deck were made for social gatherings and events, welcoming visitors, residents and locals throughout the week and on Sundays, Santa Maria’s thriving market day. Strategically situated on the main road of town, the centre is easily reached by people from anywhere on the island.
Those lacking culinary confidence are inspired and empowered at Villa Wesco Mallorca, while foodies and design lovers have found a small piece of heaven.
