Generous is a word I would use when describing Heather’s approach to the culinary arts. Having attended three retreats where Heather was responsible for the food, I have had an opportunity to see her response to our group dynamic. Our first retreat in 2015 saw Heather providing the meals on her own. She explained her process and the concept of farm to table eating. While great, most of us wanted a more hands on experience. Heather rose to the occasion and our next retreat saw us involved with the preparation of our meals. This is where generosity comes in, the learning experience was wonderful. We all came away with knowledge and confidence. I have prepared many of the dishes that were presented at our retreats using ingredients that were introduced previously unknown or underused.

The meals presented at our retreats were a feast for the senses. We were mindfully aware of all of the elements involved in the making of our meals. The colors, textures, smells and tastes made each meal memorable.

Thanks Heather! My words can in no way express my feelings of the experience of working with you in the kitchen.

I went to a meditation retreat expecting to learn some lessons about mindfulness and came away with a whole new
motivation for cooking even healthier meals for myself and my family. Heather’s menus incorporated so many vegetables
and grains in new combinations that tasted so great and left me feeling satiated and happy. The recipes weren’t hard to follow and the “reward” for taking the extra time to chop fresh ingredients made all the difference. In fact the night I went home, I made the Coconut Carrot Soup for my family and they all loved it. It was also great to be reminded – and in some cases learn – of healthier swap outs to add flavor without unnecessary calories. I consider myself a seasoned cook but I definitely learned new lessons and was inspired by the new ideas that Heather brought to the table:-).
