Wonderful food is a central part of every one of our retreats and to the experience of our guests. Many great conversations begin around the dinner table, where our guests enjoy the simple ritual of breaking bread together. Our meals are often described as healthy gourmet. We have a large bountiful garden and many of the vegetables in your soup or salad will have come straight from the earth that same morning. You are always welcome to get your hands in the soil if you wish to spend some time in the garden.
We serve a combination of vegetarian meals and animal-based protein, usually wild fish or free range chicken. Whenever we can, we choose to buy organic, locally grown foods that taste better, are healthier for us, and support the kind of world we wish to see prosper. We are fortunate to have chefs that prepare our meals with love, the best of ingredients, and the creative talent with food that only true passion can bring.
Some of our guests will have food sensitivities and food allergies that we will do our best to accommodate in our kitchen. We are used to providing gluten-free meals, and we will always have dairy free options available. At the same time it is sometimes impossible to meet and address everyone’s needs when we have a large group with a range of different sensitivities. We ask that you let us know in advance of your stay, and be prepared to bring some extra items that can be safely stored in the guest refrigerator for your own use.
