Mediterranean gastro-culture is based on bringing friends and family together around the dining table, at any given opportunity.
Mealtimes aren't to be rushed here and are often enjoyed late into the evening with loved ones, over a few glasses of vino.
More than 3 million tourists visit Ibiza each summer, many of whom stay in private villas and apartments to take advantage of the magnificent views, and surrounding nature.
You want to make the most of each day here and one 'must do' for that ultimate Ibiza-experience, is to hire a professional, private chef. One who can show you the true taste of the island during your visit, whilst you relax and unwind.
We highly recommend Alejandro Velazquez, owner of Sa Paella Club, to make your holiday one to remember, for all the right reasons.
Alejandro originates from the home of the authentic Spanish Paella, Valencia - and has lived on the island of Ibiza for 9 years.
The highly-skilled cocinero previously owned a Spanish restaurant back in Valencia, before starting his new adventure here on The White Isle.
His passion for his countries well-loved cuisine also made the journey with him over the water and encouraged him to create Sa Paella Club 4 years ago - which simply means 'The Paella Club' in English.
Sa Paella Club caters for large groups, weddings and other special events, which have proven to be very popular indeed.
Dating back to the 19th century, Paella is by far the most famous Spanish delicacy of all time, and if you haven't tried it before then you're truly missing out.
Alejandro chose to share this recipe with us here at Home Cooked Heroes as it's one of his favourites and proves popular with his clients time and time again. It's a mix between the traditional Valencian Paella which consists of just Meat and Vegetables and the Seafood Paella. A dish that's sure to please all.
"It's is perfect for lazy summer days in the garden with everyone because everything is fresh, and cooked to the standard that you would expect to receive in a good restaurant here in Spain."
'Alex' believes that good food brings people closer together, and we think that this feature will have you lusting after the island until you can return again.Due to high demand for his amazing culinary skills Alejandro has now launched a new company which offers Paella delivery for smaller groups too! His new website will be live next week, and we will add it to this feature once it's available. In the meantime you can of course contact Sa Paella Club directly for bookings on the island.
