Slow Food, Slow Yoga
Macalla EcoFarm on Clare Island is holding a weekend course (March 17th -20th) in Vegetarian Cooking and Yoga - sumptuous combination... and I'll likely be there cooking etc. Christophe is a sublime foody - as his French origins surely denote...and a deep and compelling Yoga Teacher. My time spent at Macalla is indeed the source and inspiration of many of these recipes on my blog. The Farm and Retreat Centre has piles of organic gardens, polytunnels and a rare snatch of ancient woodland. The Yoga Room stares East over Clew Bay, a misty mysterious bay of 365 islets to the sacred mountain Croagh Patrick, where the sun rises. Sourdough Bread baking, Ghee making, the art of Herbs and Spices, forage and good stoic veggy banqueting...not to mention the reviving seawaters of the icy cove!
