Jean Claude Ades

When we think of Jean Claude DJing in Ibiza, we think of…

Your favourite record you put on in the morning to start the day with a smile?

All I need is the birds singing outside my window

The perfect breakfast?

At home with my wife’s best green juice, payeses fried eggs and homemade bread

You come from a very creative family, did that reflect at meal times?

My father was vegetarian and my mother always ate extremely healthy. But sometimes to make the kids happy she cooked Chicken Milanese, wow that was a highlight for us!

You lived in Italy and also spent time in Munich…what were your favourite dishes from those places?

I have many favorite German dishes, but the one I am crazy for is Bayerischer Spanferkel which is a traditional pork dish with a dark beer sauce. In Italy just something simple such as a pasta bolognese.

Thoughts on the world’s number one chef Ferran Adrià arriving with Cirque du Soleil into Ibiza?

I’m excited to try the place out, it’s great for the island…

The best tapas in Ibiza?

Can Terra

Your favourite dish at Lio?

It is so difficult to say as everything is so amazing there…

The dish that reminds you of your childhood?

Bruschetta with broadbeans

The finest host on the island

Francisco Ferrer Arabi / Jonathan Thorogood / Giuseppe Cipriani

Best sushi?

Couple of places stand out, the Pacha restaurant and also Nagai

We hear you are something of an incredible cook? What is your signature dish?

My best dish is Rigatoni with Butifarra sausages

The most delicious paella?

Es Boldado

An album you love driving around Ibiza listening to?

Pink Floyd – ‘The Wall’

The perfect sunset tune…

Lucio Dalla – ‘Caruso’

The perfect 24 hours in Ibiza would be…

On a Thursday I would have lunch at Es Torrent or El Chiringuito and afterwards chill on the beach until around 6pm. Then go to Destino for a warm up dance and later to Lio for Be Crazy…perfect.
