- a Medicinal Cooking Retreat at Rodga Manor House in Sweden 12-14 August 2016
The Living Kitchen
I am very excited and honored to welcome you to a Medicinal Cooking Retreat in a 1800th Century setting at the beautiful Rodga Manor house between the 14th and 16th of August 2016. Rodga Manor is situated in the peaceful Swedish countryside amongst beautiful lakes and deep forests. As part of this retreat I will be giving lectures combined with practical cooking workshops. One of the aims with this course is to show how we can increase the consumption of vegetables in our daily life through different recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.
The food we cook and eat will be highly nourishing and full of nutrients since we will pick it fresh each day from Rodga's organic vegetable farm. It is a very special time of year when we can enjoy the wealth of the Summer produce while at the same time take pleasure from Autumnal farm treats. Amongst plenty of wonderful vegetables, eatable flowers and herbs Rodga Manor grows the most amazing varieties of cabbages, which we will make the most of in our cooking!
All participants will be given a collection of recipes and dietary recommendations given during the course. This is a unique opportunity to experience and learn about Medicinal Cooking in a serene setting while enjoying produce farmed in breath taking 1800th Century style surroundings. This retreat is limited to 10 people only. The food we cook is gluten, dairy and refined sugar free.

One of my favourite spots in Rodga's vegetable garden is the cabbage patch. Such inspiration! Rodga grows a wide variety of brassicas rich in healing nutrients.
