The ideal accompaniment to any meal in Ibiza is a good basket of pa pagès (country bread) with its characteristic tawny hue and firm texture, served up with allioli and olives. The olives, whole or slit, are prepared in brine and seasoned with different herbs and aromatic plants. The allioli – in its most authentic version – is made by pounding garlic in a mortar and emulsifying the mixture with oil and salt.
