"I would like to praise your chefs, their food is some of the best food i eat all year... i would visit for their food alone." Mike Shreeve

"I have been visiting EarthSpirit for over 20 years as both participant and as course co-ordinator. Throughout the years Earth Sprit chefs have provided reliably delicious and plentiful nutritious vegetarian and vegan food and the food is always beautifully presented. The chefs work is at the core of the experience of Earth Spirit as a venue, as through their food they support the depth of work that people come to EarthSpirit to undertake."
