Food And Nourishment

Food is a central part of every one of our retreats. Many great conversations begin around the dinner table, where our guests enjoy the simple ritual of breaking bread together. Our meals can be 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 soil that same day. And just so you know, you are always welcome 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 buy organic and locally grown food; ingredients that taste better, are healthier for us, and support the kind of world we wish to see prosper. We are fortunate to have passionate 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 have food sensitivities and food allergies that we do our best to accommodate in the kitchen. We are used to providing gluten-free meals, and we will always have dairy free options. At the same time it is sometimes impossible to meet and address everyone’s needs when we have a large group and people with a range of different food sensitivities. We ask that you let us know in advance of your stay if you require a special diet, and be prepared, if need be, to bring some extra items for your personal use that can be safely stored in our guest refrigerator.
