Menu/CuisineOur Food Philosophy
We believe in delicious food that makes us feel great. We believe in food that leaves as little footprint as possible. We believe in food that is cooked and prepared with love, in a harmonious environment. We believe in organic. We grow our own vegetables. We believe in local first, regional second and international after that. We believe in food that supports the community. We believe in BIG FLAVOURS. We love colours. We believe the kitchen is a blank easel where creative juices are allowed to flow with the seasons, the weather, the mood and the people creating it. We believe that food is at the heart of our retreats, that our dining room is the main place where groups all meet as one, as equals and as valued guests.
Food is a leveller. Food is for sharing. Food is community.
We believe that the atmosphere in which we eat accounts for a lot of the experience.
We believe in homemade, handmade and happy.
We believe in simple, sensual and seasonal meals.
We believe in service and we are honoured to serve you.
