A Stripped Back Birthday For A Special Little Girl

Mimi’s 7th Birthday At Home

As many of you probably know, the parties we generally throw for our kids are quite elaborate and rightly so! Who doesn’t like a party with all the trimmings?

However, this year, Mimi requested a more simple party at home, with a Christmas Rainbow Unicorn theme…

The birthday girl and her friends played traditional English party games like Hide and Seek, Musical Chairs and did a treasure hunt. Then afterwards made some Christmas decorations together.

The food and consisted of delicious mini pizzas, chicken goujons, donuts and candy canes, plus a red velvet and macaroon cake all prepared with love by our dear friend Freja, a self-confessed feeder!

A perfect back-to-basics afternoon, topped off by a Christmas movie on the sofa.


Melina’s Big Birthday! 8-11.9.21


After more than 2 years of planning, we finally got to celebrate one of our client’s big birthdays, with friends and family flying in from around the world to congratulate and celebrate together.
Day 1 of the 4 Day extravaganza kicked off with an intimate dinner for 23 at Roto in Marina Botafoch for close family and friends before the rest arrived from their home countries. With welcome drinks of Miraval Rosé and Laurent Perrier Champagne, the guests enjoyed a sumptuous meal of Asian and Oriental dishes of Tiger Crawfish Tempura, Red Tuna Tataki, Chicken with ‘ras el hanout’ and vegetable couscous, cooked at low temperature and served with vegetable couscous, yoghurt sauce, mint, mojo sauce with coriander and Piparra peppers.

Day 2 was the big White Party at Atzaro Agroturismo with close friends interviewing the 50 VIP guests as they arrived “Red Carpet Style” to be greeted by fine wines of Domaine Vacheron les Romains Sancerre, Tommassi Amarone Valpolicella and, of course, her signature Champagne for welcome drinks before sitting down to a bespoke menu chosen by each guest individually. A logistical challenge to say the least but organised and executed with Atzaro’s support. The chosen music genre began with subtle Bossa Nova with the Elena Tovar Trio and then moved onto classic soul tracks with DJ Santana & the amazing soulful voice of Keisher Downie accompanied by one of Ibiza’s finest sax players, Anastasia McQueen and 3 Gogo dancers from The Shop Ibiza in “diamonds” and feathers to present the 3 cakes for the birthday girl and her friends who could not celebrate their birthdays over Covid.

Day 3, was “Boho Chic” day at Nobu Hotel, a more relaxed, informal drinks and dinner, with a bespoke section of dishes from the infamous Nobu menu and the delectable Chambao Mediterranean menu all served poolside, beach front and under a tirade of overhead icicle fairy lights and colourful countryside flowers from Ramo de Flores. The chosen bespoke drinks for this night ranged from Sancerre Pascal Jolivet from France, Barolo Serralunga Ferdinando Principiano, from Italy, Château d’Esclans Whispering Angel, Rosé from Provence, and Taittinger Champagne along side Nobu’s signature Cava Sangria & Japanese Mojitos with fun beats from DJ Tom Grimes to seal the deal!

Final day of the birthday tour brought us back to Chiringuito Blue in Santa Eulalia, one of our family favourites for a relaxed “Beach Chic” evening where the guests enjoyed Blue’s finest dishes of Black lentils taboule, quinoa, roasted beetroot with salt and yogurt, White fish Sashimi, tomato seed, lemon & olive oil, Half Free Range Chicken Chargrilled with sage and lemon, Charcoal grilled Filet of Seabass and Sliced Galician 25 day dry aged Entrecote Beef with Chimichurri sauce. All finished off with vegan chocolate ice cream sandwiches, piña colada tarts with cheesecake mousse and a great LED light performance from Alchemy Flame.
All in all, great memories were made by all and the group were one of the nicest set of people from all nationalities and an event that Cardamom was proud to organise and be apart of.
Happy Birthday Melina from the Cardamom Team xxx

Date Night by Craig

Cardamom Date Night – A Blog by Craig

So the for the first time in a long time and between extensive events, the Mrs & I managed to fit in a date night at the gorgeous La llama restaurant in the W Hotel at the invite of the lovely Joshua from the Marriott, Blue & W Group and it was super special.

We started with a pumpkin carpaccio marinated with lemon, homemade mustard, pumpkin seed and baby coriander and Toro tuna tataki with salsa verde and ponzo, followed by succulent Miso and Sake marinated black cod with home made pickled ginger and a sides of truffled potato purée and sautéed Bimi broccoli with fresh lemon and garlic. To die for! If that wasn’t enough, it would have been rude not to try a dessert and we settled on Vanilla profiteroles all washed down with a beautiful French Minuty rosé.

Could be in the running for our new favourite restaurant but in competition with Chiringuito Blue of course!

Cardamom Kitchens – Behind The Scenes

Behind The Scenes At Cardamom Kitchens

During lockdown, Navine and Craig decided it was time to go back to their roots and get back into the kitchen. As most of you will already know, Cardamom Events was born 20 years ago as a side project from The Cardamom Club, their legendary Indian restaurant and catering service in Santa Eulalia Ibiza. With the demand for delicious takeaways to eat at home during the pandemic steadily rising, it was the perfect opportunity for Craig (Cobra Award winning chef with 30 years of experience) to don his chef’s hat again and get back in to the licensed catering kitchens at Cardamom HQ. Cardamom Kitchens was born…

Joining forces in the kitchen is the wonderful Freja Ostrom. Freja used to live in the Cardamom Club 20 years ago, making her part of the original Cardamom family. She is now a chef in her own right working for several years on health retreats, yoga camps and private cheffing for high level clients from around the globe. Here is a photo from when she used to live with us from around 2007 and also in the kitchen in current times with Craig…

It’s been a labour of love, designing menus that represent traditional Indian food from different parts of India, ready to be picked up from Cardamom HQ every Friday. The team have worked hard to ensure that produce is local and sustainable, and also pioneers the modern and healthy direction that food is taking on the island. We have also been really pleased to team up with the brilliant Tess Prince of Love Food Ibiza fame. She has been styling and photographing our food, whilst providing us with some of her inspired island lemon chutney to add to orders.

This reinvention through Covid times has been a natural progression, with the very home of Cardamom coming from food and beverages for events back in the day.

The positives of this are that it has reconnected the team with Cardamom Club restaurant clientele, as well as wedding and event clients from the past. It has also allowed us to discover and develop relationships with our new Cardamom friends who are trying our food service for the first time, making tired parents happy and making lockdown dinner parties more interesting for the island folk from all nationalities.

Bringing You A Taste Of Indonesian Goodness – TEMPEH


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?

Going Back To Our Indian Cooking Roots



It was 20 years ago that Navine and Craig first stepped foot on to the magical isle of Ibiza. Fresh from London, both with fashion and design backgrounds, Craig had found a new passion for Indian cuisine and had just won Best Newcomer for Asian Culinary Arts at the Cobra Awards.

With a ton of enthusiasm and a twinkle in their eyes, Navine and Craig set up the hugely successful and now legendary Cardamom Club – an Indian restaurant in a gorgeous finca serving authentic Indian delights.

Over the years, the business expanded, with people from far and wide requesting Craig’s delicious food at their events. From this followed the inception of Cardamom Events – born from Navine’s creative flair.

Along with the food came decor and production. The team grew and eventually they were just too busy to continue with the restaurant.



Cut to 2020 and Cardamom Events were leading the pack when it comes to high-end luxury weddings and events on the island. It should have been Cardamom’s biggest year to date!

But with the advent of COVID and the island locking down, Craig and Navine needed to have a big rethink.

And so Cardamom Kitchens was born. Friends from around the globe with private villas and boats were still arriving on the island and requesting Craig’s once famous Indian food. Demand grew and now, Craig’s cooking is available to all islanders every Friday.

Freshly cooked at the Cardamom catering facilities in Santa Eulalia, dishes such as Vegetable Kofte Dhansak or Goan Prawn Curry can be ordered to pick up, with Tandoori Chicken and Punjabi Rotis and Onion Bhajis handmade with love.

If you would like try Craig’s cooking, please send your email address and telephone number to [email protected] and we will add you to our exclusive Cardamom Kitchens list.


Connor’s Birthday Celebrations Continued…

A Special 16th Birthday Celebration At Home

In our previous blog, we shared the experience of a wonderful day at CbbC Marina Santa Eulalia celebrating Connor’s 16th birthday with his Godparents.

However, the festivities didn’t stop there! We also threw him an intimate gathering at home with an alfresco lunch by the pool. Ibiza weather did not disappoint!

Due to restrictions, we kept numbers to 10 guests which was just perfect!

We dined on all of Connor’s favourite foods – Bao buns by the lovely Camalic Food Truck guys, Sushi, Connor’s godfathers made a few treats to add to the food of love, Garden fig & goats cheese tartlets! Daddy made of course his Cardamom Club specials, Andra Chicken, Samosas & Mummy´s Bhajis.

Connor put together the music with some awesome 60s, 70s and 80s playlists.

It really was the perfect day, and proof that regulations need not get in the way of a celebration!

It was so easy to organise a special treat in the comfort of our home, with all the wonderful Ibiza family that have been a big part of Connors life!
