FincaXú

By | September 16th, 2016|Categories: Eat & Drink|

With one foot in the modern world and the other set in tradition, FincaXú— an exquisite new liquor made up of the purest essences of Ibiza—has emerged. It is a surprising new take on Ibizan hierbas of exceptional strength, complexity and subtlety that is made from sherry flavoured with chamomile, vervain, juniper, mint and citric [...]

WHAT THE F*CK

By | September 12th, 2016|Categories: Eat & Drink|

But it were the words that came from my mouth when I was told the recipe I had to make a wine pairing to for this issue was Café Caleta. In the previous editions of Ibiza Style it wasn’t difficult to find a wine suiting to the recipes of Sid Shanti and write a nice [...]

Café Caleta

Ibiza, like many places, has it’s own take on coffee and it’s called Café Caleta. It also has an established toasting house called Cafés Ibiza. This family business has been running since 1958 when it was situated in the Barrio de la Marina. Here, they started out using a toaster ball with a capacity of only [...]

Gin Pairings

By | September 3rd, 2016|Categories: Eat & Drink|

Cooks and gin does not mean "cook in gin" or "gin in the chef" but rather, it is the new trend; a menu that, instead of being served with the appropriate wines, is served with gin creations. This requires the kind of communication between chef and bartender that usually takes place in a good restaurant [...]

NO 7 – PRESENT!

Now I have to say that I didn’t use to get along that well with my teachers, if I would show up at school altogether I was usually seated at the back of the classroom and I’d probably leave again before the first break. If I would happen to be there and the teacher would [...]

While making the most of a visit to Barcelona we went to check out El Quim de la Boquería, an emblematic tapas venue in one of the most vibrant markets in the world. For almost 30 years, Quim has been running a venue where chefs such as the Roca brothers or Ferrán and Albert Adrià [...]

With a list of famous friends that includes Cathy Guetta, Bill Murray, Kevin Spacey, Channing Tatum, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Aniston, Bono and Oprah Winfrey it hardly comes as a surprise that Casamigos Tequila – the creation of movie superstar, George Clooney and his friends, Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman – is taking the world – [...]

So, no ‘O’

By | July 12th, 2016|Categories: Eat & Drink|

Every now and then it’s a real hassle, all this searching and tasting before you find something really nice and special, that fits into the philosophy of our wineshop. The white wine I’ll confide to the paper this time is an Albarín. No, not an Albariño. Not even close. It’s not the “family of” and [...]

Ca’n Pere Mussona

By | July 5th, 2016|Categories: Eat & Drink|

Ever since I released my book, Glorious Ibiza Food, which featured C’an Pere Mussona and the extensive work they were doing to increase numbers of various livestock endemic to the Balearic archipelago, many articles have been written about this important organic farm. However there are many new developments to this essential and exciting project. The [...]
