Breakaway Cook

Yoga + Breakaway Meals = Nourishment

I’m happy to announce that I’ll be cooking lots of breakaway dishes for an upcoming yoga retreat, led by the inimitable Geoffrey Roniger.  We’re gathering on Friday April 19, and it ends after brunch on Sunday the 21st. We’ve rented a sleeps-20 house in West Marin, high in the hills of Woodacre, for a long weekend of yoga practice and exploration, with bursts of epicurean enjoyment in between.

You can expect nourishment from three discrete directions:

  • from the yoga
  • from the food
  • from the landscape

Geoffrey is one of those rare and gifted teachers that come along just a handful of times in one’s life.  He’s back in his hometown of New Orleans, but makes periodic returns to practice with his very appreciative SF base, and this is one of them. If you love yoga and the phrase “delicious sequences” sounds appealing you, you should come.

I’ll be making every meal we eat. I have no idea yet what the menu will be but it is likely to be mostly vegetable-centric (though I can’t resist cooking SOME meat), locally sourced breakaway food using staples from Japan, Southeast Asia, India, and the Middle East.  Matcha will be available as well.

It’s a shockingly beautiful and intriguing landscape with plenty of deckspace and trails to enjoy it. Loads of “time off” to read, relax, hike, soak in tubs, etc.

It will be a unique and deeply relaxing long weekend.  You can write or call Geoffrey (contact info below) or myself to make a reservation — there are currently just four slots left.

Hope to see you there.
