Elvey Farm, a family country boutique hotel in beautiful Kent, enjoy a vegan Italian dinner at their Stramacchio Italian restaurant the evening of your arrival including a complimentary glass of prosecco.

Again in 2017 Claudia offers her popular vegan cooking retreats. The owners of Elvey Farm in Pluckley, Mariantonietta and Enrico, enjoyed Claudia's dining during their stay at her vegan B&B in Provence so much. They invited her to take her yoga and vegan cooking retreats to Elvey Farm! She will show you how to create delicious, tasty and wholesome raw vegan treats using local ingredients like the famous Kentish cob nuts and how to present with some simple tools and some Stramacchio.

A holistic time where you take care of yourself from the inside, be it through mindful yoga practice, delicious organic food: seasonal, fresh, local with an international touch, meditation practice with time to explore and relax, time to enjoy an in-depth practice, yoga philosophy and spirituality.

During the retreat, you will be served with 3-course dinner, breakfast, snacks & tea, lunch on Sunday.

Cooking with devotion: cultivating a selfless intention, committing to recognizing the Divine in those you are feeding, and cooking joyfully without expectation of recognition will improve your awareness as well as your food. For the yogic cook integrating mindfulness and love only deepens a cooking experience and, according to some, enhances the quality and flavor of the food itself.

Good food requires not only top-notch ingredients and creative recipes - it's the compassion, intention, and energy of those in the kitchen that make a meal fulfilling.
