FARM TO FORK WORKSHOP
The production of our food has the biggest potential to heal both ourselves and the planet. Our daily act of eating is a powerful medium of change. We can literally vote with our forks and connect all the dots in the critical, delicious and vital moment of putting food into our bodies.
Food can be the saddle point of a new equilibrium between the human project and the rest of life on this planet. Our daily food, the ways in which we make it, move it and consume it is at the heart of the problem and the solution.
Our workshop Farm to Fork provides a comprehensive appreciation of food production, brings together our guests to learn about permaculture and biodynamic agriculture techniques, to cook, taste, eat, think and dialogue about food production and consumption.
Experience the Andalucian life and landscapes and be an actor in the local food system.
Our Chef –
Fredrik Andersson is a world-class chef who won a Michelin star 9 months after opening his restaurant, the Mistral in Stockholm. His cooking, which fully embraced the farm to fork philosophy, with an emphasis on biodynamic & organic food, has continued to win multiple national and international awards including best eco restaurant in Sweden and best gastronomic restaurant in Europe.
You don´t need to be a professional. Our workshop is open to all levels and anyone who wants to reconnect to the simple act of eating.
