New food scene on Ibiza
There is an exciting new food scene emerging on the little island of Ibiza with a wave of new restaurants and dining experiences.
This month sees Ibiza set to host The Amorevore Food & Arts Festival (26-28 October) with stands of street food, wild food walks, long table banquets,pop up dining, cookery demonstrations and photography exhibitions.The festival highlights Ibiza’s growing status as an artisanal food destination and offers insights into global food issues. ‘Amorevore is about celebrating what comes from the heart – the love of food, the love of creating in community and the love of shared knowledge and experience’ says founder Jenna Ansell
My dining highlights on a recent visit included eating fresh seafood overlooking the sea at Atzaro Beach with its beach club atmosphere and bright turquoise furnishings reflecting the hue of the sea to eating farm to table fare at rural garden restaurant Aubergine.
The mood is away from fine dining to a more relaxed, healthy experience with sharing plates and fresh ingredients. Vegan dining establishment Wild Beets is run by long-time Ibiza resident American Cliff Grubin who started the original Sejuiced in Benniras Beach 10 years ago and also is the creator of IPURIFY his own range of takeaway cold-pressed Juice cleanses.
