Transformative Immersive Experiences
From the early explorers to contemporary visitors; the reported effects are the same. Being at altitude, surrounded by nature, with an awe-inspiring backdrop, our minds are freer, our souls clearer and the weight on our shoulders feels lighter.
Our retreats aim to compliment and improve on one of our planets most enriching offerings, supplementing the natural environment with a carefully tailored collection of experiences to optimise your adventure into something life changing.
Seasonal, Nourishing, Gourmet
It is always our intention that the food we serve should be delicious, beautiful, nourishing, appropriately indulgent and always made from scratch using the best available ingredients. Local and seasonal produce is at the heart of every dish, for reasons of sustainability but also because it is pure joy to eat food when it is perfectly ripe and ready to eat!
We love to share the wild treasures that we gather on our walks through the woods and the fields along with produce growing in the AliKats’ kitchen garden and from our local farms and then create dishes which showcase their delicate individual flavours and also how harmoniously they can be work together. Foraged ingredients inspire many of our dishes and also go into our own home made tisanes, botanical syrups, kombucha and kefir. By eating what is growing on our doorstep we are following natures cues as to what our bodies need most in that moment.
Our retreats show how beautiful food can move with the rhythms of nature.
Eating in harmony with the seasons also ensures we put vegetables at the centre of our menus and this is one of the most important things we can do for our own health and for the health of the planet. Every meal is full of fresh fruits, herbs and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds and carefully chosen minimally processed dairy products from local farms.
We are mindful to provide you with the food that will best fuel you for the day ahead. Breakfasts, lunches and snacks are designed to be cleansing, energising and sustaining in equal measure whereas the gourmet 3 course dinners are created to celebrate and honour the days discoveries, to spark delight and trigger conversation to help enhance the connection between the group.
