What a treat! This is what life is all about! Doing what you love. In a place that you love. With people that you love! Well that is what SoulCircle is all about.
Last week we had the great opportunity to share 4 days with yogis from all over the world in the beautiful French Alps, at the cozy Dojo. It is our second time to create a retreat there and this time we partnered up with Pure Experience, who creates retreats all over France.
Leslie & I had a group of 24 inspiring people to cook for every day - We had a blast! Even when we were not cooking we were constantly passionately talking about food, sharing new recipes and ideas....we just love what we do, what can I say?!
We always try to create new menus and variations which makes it fun every time we cook together!
So as promised to some of you retreaters, we are sharing recipes of two of your favourite items on the menu below - To hopefully inspire you to create some of your own Soulfood at home!
Next retreat we will do is 1-2 October at Dojo De La Piaz ( Samoëns, French Alps) so let us know if you would be interested!
