HOME COOKED HEROES – Bringing Ibiza’s famous hospitality to everyone at home.

Home Cooked Heroes

The concept of #homecookedheroes came to mind during our ongoing period of ‘lockdown’ here on the island.

One thing we all enjoy is food. We love restaurants, cooking, looking at images of food or simply just talking about it.

Food is what brings people together, especially here in Ibiza.

We’re all missing the social aspect of meeting our friends in the local restaurants and bars, and so the idea was born to publish selected recipes from the islands best chefs, mixologists, nutritionists and other industry professionals.

#HOMECOOKEDHEROES features a series of recipes that you can recreate from home.

Recipes to remind us of dining (and drinking) next to the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean sea, or under the Balearic nights sky at your favourite eatery. To remind us of the good time’s that we’ve had here over the years, and the good ones to come.

All of the recipes have been provided by professionals and will include ingredients that can be easily sourced, are reasonably priced and not too complicated to recreate from home.

We do have some special dishes and cocktails listed too which may take you a little longer to prepare, but that’s all part of the fun of cooking at home, pushing yourself to create amazing meals that the whole family can enjoy.

You’re guaranteed to learn from the best in the business, direct from your own kitchen and with more recipes added each week, you’re sure to keep your taste buds tingling with all that we have to offer.

If you’re a professional who would like to contribute your recipe to #HOMECOOKEDHEROES then please contact us here.

If you’ve used one of the recipes provided and want to show off the finished result,  please tag us on social media using the hashtag #HOMECOOKEDHEROES and we’ll share them on our socials.

Thank you.

 

A Q&A with Jennifer Bexley – Yoga & Fitness

Jennifer Bexley – aka Jennuine Fitness

 

Meet Jen, a Fitness and Yoga instructor based in Ibiza.

 

Here is her Q & A!

 

Q:  Hi Jen, what made you choose a career in fitness and yoga?  Is it something you’ve always wanted to do?

A:  I was an active teenager and was always into fitness, particularly swimming and running.  After leaving school, I started to train like crazy as I wanted to join the Army.  I ended up injuring myself so I decided to sign up in college to do an NVQ in Administration instead, and my workplace training was in a Sports Centre which I loved!  I was told that if I got my Lifeguard certificate, they’d offer me a job (which I did) and then I promptly took a Swimming Teacher course! The injury was a blessing really. Continue reading “A Q&A with Jennifer Bexley – Yoga & Fitness”

If you’re an Insta fan and follow all things ‘Ibiza’ related then you’ll have probably heard of Sol House already.

 

Renovated in 2016, the fresh and modern venue is part of the Meliá Group,  boasts two swimming pools and some of the best views over San Antonio.

Located in Cala de Bou (The Bay Of San An), the airy rooms and suites offer chilled-out breaks for adults in search of fun, sun and good music.

Their famous Rooftop Nine pool bar provides the backdrop to some of the islands most idyllic sunsets, along with DJ’s playing day and night throughout the summer months.

As you enter their reception area you’re greeted by a large white Rhino sculpture amongst various other artists contributions, which really make the hotel stand out from others in the area. It’s fun, light and very, very welcoming.

The hotel is situated along the beach-front where you’ll find a range of fun water sports, boats to other parts of the island and the water taxi which takes you over to San Antonio in around 5 minutes.

The rooftop pool is perfect for catching those Balearic rays over a few cocktails! The somewhat iconic infinity pool has been the staple of many Instagrammers photo posts over the last two years too. With a Cocktail in hand, the perfect bikini and the views towards the mountains,  it’s hard not to bag yourself a new profile picture to make everyone at home green with envy.

If you’re skipping the workouts and going straight for holiday mode then you’ll be spoilt for choice in one of their three spacious dining areas. You can enjoy lunch around the ground floor pool area with friends at ‘Play Bar’, Taco’s and Tequila at their ‘Canalla’ bar in the lobby or their ‘Food Factory’ buffet restaurant. They also have BBQ’s days on the rooftop! Make sure you stay tuned to their social media for updates in the summer regarding the BBQ days.

Las Mimosas is a hotel that you wouldn’t necessarily expect to find in The Bay of San Antonio. Tucked away up a quiet dust track, the luxurious-yet-understated boutique suites provide a relaxing break surrounded by nature.

The hotel only opened in June this year and offers a stunning Ibicencan styled living space consisting of 17 suite rooms, all with their own bathroom. The junior suite includes a comfortable sofa bed, for larger families or groups. Continue reading “Las Mimosas – A Taste of The Real Ibiza”
