Bringing You A Taste Of Indonesian Goodness – TEMPEH

TEMPERANZA LAB AT CARDAMOM KITCHENS

Today we wanted to share a little bit of information on our new homemade Tempeh from the lovely girls at the Temperanza Lab in Cardamom Kitchens.

Tempeh is a nutrient-dense soy product with a high amount of protein, as well as various vitamins and minerals. It may decrease cholesterol levels, oxidative stress and appetite, whilst improving bone health. Tempeh also contains prebiotics, which may improve digestive health and reduce inflammation.
It is a traditional Indonesian food made from soybeans that have been fermented, or broken down by microorganisms.
Tempeh has a dry and firm but chewy texture and a slightly nutty taste. It can be steamed, sautéed or baked and is often marinated to add more flavour. Much like other meatless sources of protein, such as tofu and seitan, tempeh is a popular choice among vegans and vegetarians because it’s packed with protein, vitamins and minerals and low in sodium and carbs and it goes deliciously with Cardamom’s Indian sauces!
We think it goes well with Saag, Makan Palak and Dhaliwala due to its nutty flavour.
Why not try it next time with your Cardamom Kitchens Friday order?

A Dazzling Summer Al Fresco Ibiza Wedding

 

 

 

 

A Dazzling Summer Al Fresco Ibiza Wedding

Last summer, under the Ibizan sun and blue sky, Kate and Rob tied the knot at the simply gorgeous Ca Na Xica Hotel and Spa. This charming finca is situated in the north of the island amongst orchards of fruit and olive trees and following a traditional ceremony at the local church, the couple arrived back at the venue in a sublimely cool vintage VW Camper van from Moonshine Ibiza.

Refreshing cocktails and champagne were served poolside along with a mouthwatering array of canapes, before the couple and their guests adjourned to the outdoor dining area for a sunset feast.

After the speeches and exquisite culinary indulgence, the happy group danced the night away beneath the Ibiza stars.

A most perfect mid-summer celebration!

Thanks to:

– Nick and Nickie for the Moonshine Ibiza VW Camper images
– Jordi Prat from Ibiza Pro DJ
El Ramo de Flores for the flowers

Huawei 3 Day Phone Launch 2018

Charming The Influencers – Ibiza Style!

Earlier this year, Cardamom Events Ibiza were tasked with creating and delivering a unique and glamorous corporate event for communications giants Huawei.

64 influencers from across Europe had been invited to an incentive group to check out a brand new product. Of course, we jumped at this opportunity to show them the best our island has to offer…

We accommodated all the guests at the stunning new 7 Pines Resort where we also set up a photo and embellishment workshop.

The group was then transported for a breathtaking dinner at one of Ibiza’s finest sunset spots Hostal la Torre.

The next day, an elegant sail boat took them on a trip to neighbouring Fomentera before they dined and danced beneath the stars at Destino.

It certainly was a corporate event unlike any other, and one that Huawei’s clients will NEVER forget!

Thanks to:

Cardamom Events Feature – Cake Project Ibiza & Barcelona – Lauren de Vries

 

Cardamom Events Feature

Cake Project Ibiza & Barcelona- Lauren De Vries

Cardamom Events would like to introduce Lauren, a 25 year old pastry chef from Amsterdam.

After graduating from her bachelor in Marketing and Communication, she moved to London to do a patisserie course at Le Cordon Bleu.

Back in Amsterdam she started her first company: Life of Pie Amsterdam.

In a small conservatory on the canals the company and her love for baking grew. Developing her baking, assembling and decorating skills, more orders started to roll in.

Up to a point that Lauren could no longer handle it on her own. Together with a great team they worked around the clock to turn each and every cake into a masterpiece.

Now, three years later Lauren has started a new adventure. Flying back and forth between Barcelona (where she currently lives) and Ibiza (her favourite place on earth), she bake cakes for several events.

Not only does she do birthdays, she can make you a wicked wedding cake, babyshower cake or any other event you might possibly need a cake for (or any other sweet for that matter)!

Pick your flavour, pick your style and Lauren will do her absolute best to turn your wishes into a piece of edible art.

Let us know if you would like Lauren to style your special cake…

Mimi’s 3rd Birthday Party by Cardamom Events

 

Mimi’s 3rd Birthday Party by Cardamom Events

 

Mimi’s 3rd birthday has become quite the way to begin the year for the Cardamom Events family. This year was no different with the design brief being that it should be non-stressful for adults and maximum fun for kids! Believe it or not, kids’ parties in Ibiza can be quite challenging as they are usually big family affairs…

The event took place at Can Xarc, a Spanish family restaurant on the beach. The menu was vegetarian, fun and healthy.

The highlights for the kids were the bouncy castle, a game of pass the parcel, some eco-friendly party bags and, of course, the cutting of the Frozen cake!

The parents were able to relax too with tapas and wine, knowing that the children were in a safe and comfortable place.

 

All in all a successful afternoon!

Friends of Cardamom Feature – INMEDIA Design

 

Friends of Cardamom Feature – INMEDIA Design

Here at Cardamom Events Ibiza, we are lucky enough to work with the cream of the island’s professionals. Having spent much time with Alex and Dino from INMEDIA Design over the years, their support of our business and the service they provide to our clients in terms of design and print definitely warrants a blog piece! We had a little chat with Alex, CEO and Production Director of the company.

Cardamom – What brought you to Ibiza?

Alex – Of course the love of the island and the beautiful weather! We didn’t want to work inside the tie-suit advertising business anymore. It was a typical emigration dream for the better life in Spain!

In 2006 we came to Ibiza. After a few years freelancing we realised that the professional and creative service we were offering justified setting up our own company. So, in 2009 INMEDIA design was born and has enjoyed more and more success each year since. We’ve hired professionals for each sector of the business. From coding experts to copy writer, social media and marketing specialists. Our main aim is to solve all problems in-house.

C – What is your relationship with Cardamom?

A – We are friends. We’ve supported each other wherever possible and we still do. As we have the same immigrant background, just from different countries, we share a lot of problems and dreams. We are 2 families with different histories but we would give them housing whenever needed, and I’m sure they would do too! We both started from a little business and grew it up with a hell of a lot of work, lots of sweat and hard times!

C – What do you love most about Ibiza?

A – The weather and the multi-cultural feeling. I love to hear many languages when you are in a restaurant, and the different cultures and influences from all over the world.

C – Any advice for anyone wanting to start a business here?

A – Don’t think that the island was waiting for you and your business. Better set up a business with the entire world as target-marked instead of this tiny little island.

You can contact INMEDIA for all your design needs right here info@inmedia-design.com

ROCKID Cliff Jumping – Discover a wilder side to Ibiza!

image

Cardamom Events are looking forward to working more closely with ROCKID Ibiza in 2018.

Discover the wild side of Ibiza with one of the most exciting and fun excursions. Driving through the old ‘caminos’ (roads) of Ibiza, exploring areas of great natural beauty and sea views, to walk down the cliffs and mountains to reach sea level.

image

There, in a challenging but safe environment, ROCKID urge each of you to ‘face your fears’, as they offer the increasingly popular activity in Ibiza, cliff jumping. You will enjoy the fun and exhilaration of jumping into the water from the rocks, with experienced instructors to ensure your safety.

Cliff jumping can be also combined or replaced by snorkeling in the crystal clear waters of the secluded places you can visit. Afterwards, far away from the crowded beaches, you can share a delicious organic picnic on the rocks with some refreshing ice cold drinks.

We can offer all of the services of ROCKID to our more adventurous clients! Not only cliff jumping, but treasure hunts, kayaking, quads and so much more! Perfect for corporate events and group activities!

Los Fermentistas – committed to making live cultured fermented food and drinks!

Los Fermentistas – committed to making live cultured fermented food and drinks!

Los Fermentistas are Cardamom’s new neighbours! Recently homed in our office’s kitchens, Los Fermentistas are a husband and wife partnership who were looking to regain control of their health and happiness.

Jakob and Rebeca Hronek began their fermentation journey in 2012 after noticing their physical reaction to ‘live’ sauerkraut. They have since been committed to the revival of this old technique, how it can be utilised in the modern world, ways to make it more accessible, if not trendy in an age where there has been a huge reliance on antibiotics, and where bacteria are demonised rather than understood and honored for their roles.

Bex – The first time I tried a live fermented product was Sauerkraut, on a camping trip with friends in Germany, I felt an instant bodily reaction, like this was something my body had been waiting for, it was amazing!

Curiosity piqued, I dove in and got my first ever scoby for Kombucha and began to make a very basic version of Kimchi.

I hadn’t realised just how much impact ferments would have on my health, my digestive system began to function properly and the acne I had become accustomed to cleared up.

Jakob being an avid chef and a scientist by nature took things to the next level and the experiments diversified, we began to make more varieties of kimchi, and sauerkraut and Jun were added to the repertoire.

Through much trial and error, orange walls and purple splashed ceilings we began to perfect our recipes. Jars of pickles filled the shelves, pots of Sauerkraut and Kimchi bubbled, and bottles of Kombucha and Jun fizzed.

What is it we do exactly?

We are micro microbe farmers and avid fermentation revivalists.

We make a range of products, in the Cardamom kitchens, which we sell every Saturday at Ibiza’s only local farmers markets, offering free degustations and information about the benefits of fermented products, the chance to try before you buy!

On our standard menu you’ll find:

– Classic Sauerkraut, our very own Superkraut ( made with Hijiki and Wakame seaweed, turmeric and kale, pretty super huh?!)

– A range of Kimchi’s; Classic, Butternut squash, daikon and vegan.

– Our drinks are Kombucha (black tea with rose) and Jun (gunpowder jasmine green tea fermented with honey).

The foods are probiotic and the drinks prebiotic, all teeming with beneficial bacterias to help balance your gut. This is our standard, but we often have visiting jars from our experimental kitchen.

We love doing pop up dinners ‘Love Your Guts’ often in collaboration with chefs whose food we love, where ferments and their culinary uses are shown in all their glory,

We offer a ’Fermentale’ bar, where ferments and live vinegar shrubs are combined to make delicious virgin and non-virgin cocktails.

Where can you find us?

Our products can currently be found in Savia in Ibiza Town and Polen in Santa Eularia, and other shops throughout the island.

Every Saturday with good weather you’ll find us just opposite Can Tixedo Art cafe at the Mercat de Forada, it’s the best place to get your seasonal, affordable organic veggies!

We work frequently in collaboration with other chefs like James Canvin Knight (gastro pub chef) and Boris Buono, and are happy to receive frequent invites to educate about fermentation and present our products.

We have a few other interesting projects and events in the pipeline, for those you’ll need to tune into our Facebook page for updates.

Who Says Corporate Can’t Be Luxe?

Who Says Corporate Can’t Be Luxe?

Earlier on in the 2017 season, Cardamom Events were asked to organise a corporate incentive trip for a group of 90 investment bankers. Of course, we grabbed this opportunity gladly, as there is nothing we enjoy more than showing off what the magical White Isle has to offer.

There is so much to see and do, so it would be easy to attempt to cram as much as possible into our guests’ event, giving them a plethora of activities and options.

However, as experience has often shown, less is more, and in our usual serenely unique style, we gave them a full day on the Mediterranean Sea on a luxury boat party with water sports and on-board catering, followed by a fabulous 3-course dinner of sharing plates  accompanied by champagne and cocktails, and a disco at the stunning Lamuella in their open air dining and dancing area.

All planning, organisation, transportation, logistics and entertainment were taken care of by Cardamom Events.

A Day In The Life…

So what really goes on when the island’s most elite event planners throw an event in their own home? Step inside and take a peek…

Wedding and corporate event planning comes naturally to Navine and Craig, directors of Cardamom Events. So one spring afternoon, they invited a group of personal friends to enjoy and alfresco lunch by the pool of their exquisite Ibiza villa and made it look both relaxed and luxurious in an effortless manner.

One of the Cardamom team’s in-house chefs Ally Beatty prepared a delectable menu of fresh seasonal plates. Highlights included his whole cauliflower shwarma with pomegranate, coriander and pine nuts, his heavenly slow-roasted vegetable antipasti and his bite-sized edamame sliders. The wine flowed and the sun shone. A perfect primavera day…
