The Mindful Cook Retreat
The Mindful Cook retreats are based in the kitchen, but are not a traditional cookery course. You will definitely learn, through demonstrations and taking part in simple food preparation, how to create healthy dishes that you can recreate at home. You will leave with a folder stuffed full of recipes and inspiration. But that’s not all! You will get some practical advice and guidance on how to apply Mindfulness to your eating habits and an opportunity to re-think your relationship with food. The weekend will feature some creative foodie activities, the chance to taste some new flavours and to share wholesome meals in great company. These retreats are run every 3 months, please check The Mindful Cook website or our events page for dates and details and book through The Mindful Cook.
