This month's menu theme is APHRODISIACS and it is based on Spring foods which become available to us just as our bodies need light, warm, dry, and rough foods. They are the antidote to the dampness of the Spring Season and the heaviness that has accumulated throughout the Winter Season. In Ayurveda, these are called Kapha pacifying foods. Our meal will be filling but without leaving you feeling heavy. In fact, the foods and herbs included in these dishes will help kindle your internal fire, brighten your light, and perhaps draw you towards the radiance of the other guests as each dish contains at least one aphrodisiac. Find yourself first admiring your dinner, then perhaps your neighbor ...
As each dish is served, the healing properties of the relevant ingredients will be explained.
Guests will leave with a sample of Noël's aphrodisiac tea along with aphrodisiac bliss balls. We'll talk about mindful eating as well and be led in a guided meditation with Robin to set the stage for bliss and pleasure.
