Pete on Food
Yogis are often very food conscious – it goes with the territory. Meeting the challenge has been a very educating and rewarding process. It’s a duty and a real pleasure to provide the most thoughtful, colourful, tasty, healthy and nutritious food possible, wherever we are in the world. It certainly keeps me out of trouble, for a while.
‘There is only one recipe – to care a great deal for the cookery.‘
On retreat, guests want wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian and vegan food that inspires, delights and tastes better than anything you’ve had all year. Plant-based with selected eggy and cheesy treats for those who don’t want to go full vegan. All delicious. All wholesome. All prepared with love.
You head down to the shala and I’ll get busy in the kitchen. We’ll come together afterwards to eat. A family table. A feast of joy. You may have to endure my bad jokes but you’ll let me off when you try my just-baked cinnamon-ginger granola, my Himalayan bean stew with idli and coconut-coriander chutney, or my raw raspberry and hazelnut tarts.
Prior to retreats we are always very conscious of any special dietary requirements. We’ll send you a form so that we have a heads up on any allergies, intolerances and food preferences. Our menus are balanced to reflect the ebb and flow of the practices and we source abundant, fresh, local produce and flavours.
Here’s a sample of the menu from our last Tres Posh Ibizan Yoga Retreat. Have a nosey.
