Ibiza is on the cusp of a food revolution. The island's traditional farming and fishing culture has been supplemented with a wave of chefs and producers making artisan products and vibrant food. Now Eivissa, the first recipe book to showcase the incredible Ibicenco dishes Ibiza cuisine has to offer, reveals how to recreate the tastes of the white island in your own home. Divided into seasonal chapters to reflect the ingredients in Ibiza, these are gorgeous recipes reflecting the heritage of the cuisine, yet with contemporary twists. Sample a really simply Grilled Courgette Ribbons, Asparagus Mint Tostada from Spring, for example, or a Grapefruit Juniper-Encrusted Pork Salad.

Full of stunning photography shot on location in Ibiza, both of the recipes and the island's beautiful backdrop, these are recipes that are full of energy, warmth and enjoyment.
