I first traveled to Vermont this past November for a Yoga & Yarn retreat with my Mom. She wanted to start a yoga practice & I wanted to start a knitting practice. When I saw the name of the retreat I laughed because it couldn’t have been better suited for the two of us. The weekend retreat was beautiful, relaxing & a wonderful bonding experience for me and my mom.
One of my trepidations leading up to the retreat was what the food was going to be at Good Commons. I had never been away to a retreat like this and had no idea what to expect. I have many restrictions on what I eat and I didn’t want to be a bother to the hosts (I packed food with me just in case). The ultimate highlight of the trip ended up being just how incredible the food was! On the bus ride up to Vermont there were delicious gluten-free gingerbread cookies served with wine. Each morning was a different offering of gluten-free & regular oatmeals, each lunch and dinner more and more offerings of unique salads, soups, and always just as many yummy options for the gluten or dairy free people as there were for the carnivorous, dairy and gluten eaters in the bunch.
This is why I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the upcoming Culinary Immersion Weekend at Good Commons July 14th-17th. Adding to the delicious lineup of tasting, cooking, drinking and eating will be YOGA.
Since Good Commons opened their doors to share the bounty of the Northeast, guests have been asking for a hands-on culinary experience — well, here it is! A weekend that takes you inside the Good Commons kitchen to learn from some of our favorite chefs and culinary entrepreneurs.
