You've asked great questions and the students are answering many that I will post. However, let's start with: How's the food?
Justin and I have always put a huge emphasis on food at the retreats. La Veta is extremely limited on places to eat so we have the meals catered. We are blessed to have Sally and Karen, sisters, who live in La Veta and cater our lunches and dinners. The Sisters have owned a restaurant and a cooking school and taught cooking tours in France. Here is what some the retreaters currently here have to say about the food:
"the food is fabulous!" Mary
" I've had wonderful meals all over the world. The food here ranks close to the top - if not the best ever. Do not plan on losing weight here." Frank
" fantastic - better than 5 star..." - Pat
"..I'd expect to pay $30-$50 per plate- they are so incredible." -Kathy
So - tonight we had boneless ribs, cheesy mashed potatoes, grilled zucchini, mango/red onion/cabbage slaw served with garlic bread. Yes, there is dessert - tonight it was pumpkin pie with chocolate ganache topped with fresh whipped cream.
Now - get ready - Sally and Karen have offered to share the recipe for their Mango, and Red Cabbage Slaw. Click through to the comments on this blog for their recipe.
