If you have picked up your edition of Ibiza Style Magazine this month, then you will have noticed the fantastic Guia Gastronomica supplement within, a collaboration between Icon Ibiza and the famous print publication that shines a light on some of the fantastic gastronomic adventures that await around the island. Inside, we take a look at some of the most innovative kitchens on the island, as well as the traditional eateries that have been feeding Ibiza for generations.
With a spectacular array of culinary options, Ibiza has become one of the most important foodie hotspots within Europe; whether you want to sample a paella recipe passed on through generations of the same family or check out the very latest in innovative cuisine cooking – or just want to be well informed on where you can enjoy great food with a warm atmosphere – our team will be out and about all month to make sure every issue of Guia Gastronomica brings you something fresh.
The debut issue sets the bar for what we will be delivering each month, giving an eclectic journey through some of the best food and drink experiences as well as gatherings that Ibiza has witnessed. BE Day saw a wide selection of industry professionals come together in Es Jardins de Fruitera, Santa Gertrudis. Organised by BE Drinks, it saw a successful first Bar & Beverage Ibiza meeting. Going for dinner in Ibiza can often offer the chance to engage the imagination, with many restaurants combining a theatrical element with their fare. La Belle Ibiza and La Imprenta are two such venues, and this issue we shone the light on the fantastic and dramatic adventure that awaits in each of these magnificent eateries.
Vino & Co is an island favourite, dropping in to pick up a bottle of wine is never a dull affair. The passion and knowledge that is the foundation of the concept ensures that you learn a little about wine each time and you always leave with the perfect bottle for your occasion. The good news is that it has now extended its purview and the new look wine bar offers a cool place to shoot the breeze and enjoy some delicious wine from 5pm daily. If you love food and drink, and that’s pretty much all of us, then there is something for everyone in the Guia Gastronomica; from a look at the finest cut of meat in Montauk Steakhouse to the elegance of Chiringuito Blue. We catch up with some talented chefs who are pushing the boundaries of what happens in the kitchen in the Private Chefs & Catering feature, and we look back on Ibiza Therapy, Ibiza Style’s very own gastronomic adventure and there’s a chance to find out the secret recipe of the Mari Mayans family as we go behind the famous Hierbas label.
