http://thenovello.com/alfondie/elkos/2519 We fervently believe that the daily experience of eating should confer rewards, not only in terms of the impact on physical health, but equally through the pleasure and enjoyment of creating and savoring beautiful, natural food. So as Derwenthorpe blooms (despite fluctuating temperatures), and there is evidence of a new season in the fruit and veg appearing on shelves in our shops, and in some cases in our gardens, we’re turning our attention to the magnificence and creativity of raw living food.
With this in mind, we’re making summer the ‘ see Art of Calm Lunch‘ season, and inviting anyone who wants to experience raw food and learn more about it to a 3 course lunch here at Derwenthorpe (to the east of York). We aim to share a variety of dishes with our guests as well as recipes and other relevant information. The price of these lunches is £25 per person and can be arranged to suit, on a Saturday, Sunday or Tuesday throughout the summer months. As we believe food should be enjoyed without rushing, we will allow 2 hours for lunch from arrival to finish commencing at 12.30. There is more here about the food we prioritise, but also see below for our latest soup recipe (raw soup doesn’t have to be served cold!)
