  Cooking and Gardening Retreat 

 Meditation Retreat Lean to cook some vegetarian dishes you can serve up this festive season

 Wendy Poulton


This is a great opportunity to give back to Emoyeni while learning how to cook some vegetarian dishes you can serve up this Festive Season.  Emoyeni is hosting its first combination gardening and cooking retreat where you will help revamp the herb garden at Emoyeni as a legacy project and take part in a hands-on cooking demonstration.  The retreat will consist of the following:

  • Lectures on tips for maximising flavour and nutrition in vegetarian and vegan cooking
  • How to plant and maintain herbs – bring along your favourite herb plant as a contribution and share how you use it in your cooking
  • A cooking demonstration where you will work in pairs to prepare a vegetarian buffet for everyone to share (Covid-19 protocols observed)
  • Access to the recipes and the recorded cooking lesson
  • Membership of a new Emoyeni vegetarian recipe group

Morning and evening meditations will also be on the programme so you return feeling fully rejuvenated and refreshed.  The cooking classes will be led by Wendy Poulton who is a regular cook at Emoyeni and who has a passion for tasty and nutritional food.
