At Silver Spoon Ibiza we offer All-inclusive Wedding Packages that will make your Ibiza wedding a success for you and your guests with none of the wedding planning headaches! Keeping the planning simple is our style. Let’s be honest, everyone enjoys a BBQ for being fun yet informal. It is a great idea to turn that traditional wedding into that wonderful excuse to plan a holiday abroad with the plus of bringing all the family together for a fun day and celebration meal.
THE FIRST STEPS IN PLANNING YOUR IBIZA WEDDING – THE MENU
When we initially sat down to design our menus we wanted to keep reminding ourselves why YOU, have out of all possible destinations, chose Ibiza as your Wedding Location. We wanted to make sure that if we were designing All-inclusive Wedding Packages that these were reflective of what an Ibiza Wedding should be. Here we have listed, from a culinary point of view, what we consider, the main reasons that make destination couples choose Ibiza above other destinations and that inspired our menus:
If it´s in Spain, it has to be Spanish
When we do our groceries, we look at every single label to make sure that our main products are original from Spain. Our meats are from the Balearic Islands, Galicia and Asturias and our vegetables from Valencia, Murcia and Ibiza. Something I love to add to my salads and desserts are Ibiza fruits! These are so sweet and full of flavour. Make sure you have this somewhere in your menu.
As we are a Spanish company, we like to give our dishes that distinctive Mediterranean character also being such a multicultural team we do dare to include some unexpected hints of mixed International flavours by adding ginger, harissa, cilantro and other secret spices to our dishes. Although these aren´t ingredients you would find in a traditional Spanish house we do consider that they do represent the new Ibiza, the Ibiza that is in fashion and that you have enjoyed in other occasions here.
Catering for a BBQ involves a trip to the local market to buy the freshest vegetables, meats and fish. For example, sun ripened Mediterranean tomatoes full of flavour with fresh herbs and extra virgin vinaigrette dressing. We make our own aioli with fresh garlic and home-made mayonnaise. Olives from the Spanish mainland. Fresh asparagus, peppers for roasting and new potatoes.
By Spanish I don´t mean Italian
I love Italian cuisine, don´t get me wrong. But if you and +50 something guests are in Ibiza for a destination wedding, I can´t serve you a glass of Prosecco! Spain has the most exquisite products ranging from red and white regional wines, Cava, cheeses, hams, chorizo, and so on.
Nothing is ready made, we produce everything fresh.
Everything served at our events is freshly produced. From the canapes to the desserts everything is made in-house and served with style.
Our Waiting team is friendly
We make sure that everyone on our team has that positive attitude because if there is something we know well is that Spain is well known by its friendliness attitude towards tourists.
We at Silver Spoon want to make your Ibiza wedding special. Catering is our passion and we hope it will be evident at your event. All our catering team are there to make your day flow and be relaxing and enjoyable for your guests and all of this with a big smile on our faces.
