Choose between an exquisite plant-based catered feast or a self-guided cooking experience
Gathering around and nourishing your body with wholesome food is a core element to a Moonshine Women holiday.
We invite you on a culinary experience with poet, writer and plant-based cook, Cade McConnell. Experience consciously prepared plant-based food along with friendly service and his incredible passion for the land and sea.
Cade is devoted to organic and seasonal produce, minimal packaging and wastage. and preparing food from scratch. Food is served in many unique forms of cookware, from rustic ceramic bowls and plates, to handmade clay pots and hand-beaten copper spoons, which all add to the unique food experience.
Your Moonshine Women holiday can also include an exclusive Om Cade self catering experience. Be guided from the comfort of your retreat space, through short videos and your own organic food kit, to learn and prepare simple, nourishing meals for your stay. Flow at your own meditative pace, or have some fun in the kitchen connecting with the women you love while creating, learning and sharing intentional meals together.
Across the in-person and guided cooking experience, Cade is aware of every ingredient and intention that goes into your food. He doesn’t use any refined sugars or nasty ingredients. Gluten is not often used in cooking, unless using sourdough bread and dairy is used in the form of ghee if needed, otherwise coconut and extra virgin olive oil is used.
