Eivissa: The Ibiza Cookbook
With summer upon us, so grows an insatiable yearning for Mediterranean flavours and alfresco dining as we achingly dream of long European summer nights. Although the English weather may not be cooperating, Ibizan cook and farmer Anne Sijmonsbergen has released her island cookbook Eivissa just in time for us to savour the last few months of summer. As you might guess, Eivissa, which is the island’s native name, is honestly and authentically true to its roots, giving its readers a wealth of Ibizan recipes and flavours to explore.
Traditionally a farming and fishing island, with the wave of tourism and development that has made Ibiza the holiday island in the Mediterranean, the cuisine on the island has undergone a revolution of its own. Anne Sijmonsbergen has found herself inherently involved in this food revolution, being a local producer and farmer of many organic fruits and vegetables (she also holds the title of being Ibiza’s only organic tomato farmer) as well as a cook in her own right. In Eivissa she explores these local flavours as well as the excitement and creativity that the contemporary cooking scene has brought with it.
“Traditionally a farming and fishing island, with the wave of tourism and development that has made Ibiza the holiday island in the Mediterranean, the cuisine on the island has undergone a revolution of its own.”
For those of you who have been to Ibiza and perhaps for those of you who have not, this island will inspire images of white sand beaches, azure blue seas and gorgeous Mediterranean flavours. Without a doubt our favourite island in the Mediterranean, now you can take all of this (and more) home with you in your copy of Eivissa.
