A Mindful Feast (with Anna Jones)
Ever been guilty of inhaling your lunch at your desk? How often do you actually taste your food, savouring every mouthful, experiencing the flavours, textures, smells and using all of your senses in the process? Dr. Tamara Russell and chef and author Anna Jones will take you through their take on eating and mindfulness in the kitchen. Each guest will make dishes from Anna’s plant based recipes while discussing the importance of how we eat as well what we eat. Guests will work in pairs to create amazing summer dishes and treats to feast on, exploring which memories and associations it evokes in us, where the food comes from and its journey to the plate.
