Vibrant Vegan! Cornwall – Photo scrapbook of our recent weekend of healthy plant-based cooking and yoga

Here are some of our favourite pictures from last weekends Vibrant Vegan Cornwall getaway, just beside Lands End.

We were blessed with sunny weather and clear skies and joined by a wonderful group of people.  We shared many memorable times, lots of empowering yoga with Complete Unity Yoga in the Yoga Hall, so much plant-based food, delicious and healthy, with global twists and plenty of treats.  Boswedden House was a beautiful location, comfortable with a nice big dining room and kitchen (the most important rooms right!)

Stunning Cape Cornwall! The sun shone all weekend.

The gardens of Boswedden overlook the coastline and the little old tin mines which trail along the cliffs.  They even have a labyrinth in the garden which we enjoyed.  It was the perfect location for our Saturday night fire, where we told stories, sang songs and read poetry.  We even burned a chest of drawers (old and dilapidated;) which added a real spark to the evening!

We welcomed an amazing group of people! (Not sure what I was looking at here!;)

Malene’s yoga was based around the teachings of Patanjali, taking us right back to the roots and heart of yoga.  All took part and felt the benefits.  Yoga is for all!  No matter what level we’re at.

On Sunday night Malene and Will led a transformatory experience in the yoga hall.  Yoga in the mornings is always a highlight, especially when the pool is open beforehand.  The best way to start any day!

A weekend filled with treats!!

I cooked for much of the weekend with a top kitchen crew, Will, Will and Jenna.  An amazing team of passionate cooks who contributed to making the weekends food extra special.  I’ve popped the menu below:

All meals were themed; Spanish, Japanese, Healthy Vegan Junk Food, Mexican and loads more…

Delphiris took over the lounge for the weekend for a variety of massage sessions, along with Jane’s reiki and menstrual cycle workshop, Malene was offering one-to-one yoga consultations and lifestyle coaching.  All these therapies had such a positive effect on the weekend.

It’s rare in life we can just let go, focus solely on taking care of ourselves and re-energising and aligning ourselves with healthy ways of being.  This is what the Vibrant Vegan weekends are all about, it goes way beyond just what we eat, but a wholesome, balanced plant-based diet is a excellent cornerstone for a healthier body and lifestyle.

We’re chuffed that there are at least two new vegans in the world after the weekend!  We all talked a lot about new ideas, impetus and strategies to lead a more balanced life back in the ‘real world’, a life that is based around our own well-being and peace of mind, making us better equipped to deal with the ups and downs in life, allowing us to give life our very best shot!

Rainbow Sushi for the Japanese lunch, along with roasted teriyaki sweet potatoes and wasabi mayo, pickled rhubarb and noodle salad

Did we mention the sunshine!! So many options for wonderful walks and enjoying the beautiful scenery

Energy balls and healthy truffles, ideal fuel for yoga, long walks and swimming

Everyday, there is cake!

And lots of desserts…

Our Vibrant Vegan holidays showcase what a healthy plant-based diet is all about, variety, colours, textures, fresh flavours, decadent treats, amazing nutritional bits and pieces.  It’s a no lose, no sacrifice, all good way of nourishing our body.  It doesn’t have to be challenging either, so many quick recipes when time is the master!

The weekends are all about inspiring us to cook fresh food, during the cooking demonstration we talked about simple techniques to change the way we cook at home, saving time and approaching new ingredients with confidence.  We even had a chat about vegan nutrition and how to thrive on pure plants.

Big thanks to all who made our Vibrant Vegan weekend so special!!

I know that a lot of people made it down to the beach and the surrounding coves, the ocean down in Cornwall seems really grand.  There is the feeling that you’re right at the end of the island, looking out into the big, big blue.  Refreshing!

Our big thanks and love to all attended and made Vibrant Vegan a very special weekend for us all, especially Jane, Thelma, Nigel, Sue, Will, Malene, Will, Jenna and Cat (the cat) plus everyone else behind the scenes who helps to make these holidays and getaways such a peaceful and enriching time.

It was our first time hosting an event in Cornwall and, as you can probably tell, we loved it!  Let us know if you’d be interested in a Vibrant Vegan Cornwall ’19.

PS – Extra thanks and hugs to Will and Sophia for taking these lovely pics.

Cook Vegan! London – A Weekend of Delicious Plant-based Cooking, 13th-14th October ’18

Discover creative cooking skills and have fun in Hackney this October with Lee Watson (author ‘Peace and Parsnips’ and beachhousekitchen.com). Saturday is all about Asian Street Food and on Sunday, we explore the diverse and hearty cuisine of Spain, perfect dishes for the upcoming wintertime.

These workshops are hands-on, we’ll be making vibrant, globally inspired vegan dishes like a show stopping Wild Mushroom Paella, light and fluffy Baked Pea and Mint Tortilla, creamy and spicy Malaysian Squash and Coconut Laksa, classic Teriyaki Tofu Onigirazu – Japanese Sushi Sandwiches with Cauliflower Rice, fragrant Pad Thai Salad and lots, lots more. Desserts will include a Spanish Chocolate Custard Pie (sugar and gluten-free), plus Sticky Thai Coconut and Mango Rice.

You’ll no doubt learn many new tips and techniques to make healthy, inspiring, home cooked meals an everyday reality and tune into, or unearth, your inner chef! We’ll be focusing on nourishing food with big flavours with plenty of treats; from meals in minutes to decadent desserts, one pan wonders to dishes slightly more complex, aka weekend specials and the best part is, we’ll all sit down together at the end to enjoy our tasty creations.

One of the classes from our last visit to Made in Hackney, February ’18

Each day starts with fresh teas and coffee, and you are given your bespoke recipe book for the day. We talk through the recipes and a little about the nutritional aspects of the days menu and then, we cook! Working together in small teams at well equipped stations. Numbers are kept low, so Lee and his team can offer constant assistance.

The Cook Vegan! recipes are designed to be accessible and interesting to every level of cook and the days are themed, taking in two of Lee’s favourite places in the world, Asia and Spain, places Lee has travelled, and eaten, extensively. This is food that is packed with bold flavours and bright colours, that also happen to do us good.

This is the weekend for plant-based inspiration! You’ll leave with a host of exciting recipes and bags of knowledge about plant-based food in general, with resources and support offered for anyone thinking about cooking and living a vegan lifestyle or those simply looking at incorporating more plant-based dishes into their kitchen repertoire.

This is Lee’s second visit to Made In Hackney, one of his favourite venues in the UK, and judging by last time, the weekend will sell out quickly. Book soon!

 

**Special Weekend Ticket Offer – £179**

 

Saturday – Asian Street Food Celebration
Asian cuisine, focusing mainly on South East Asia, is so vibrant, fresh and tantalising. It is a place very close to Lee’s heart, where every street seems to be a moveable feast. This street food represents one of the world’s greatest food experiences, eating delicious dishes whilst getting lost in a maze of food vendours and flavours.

Having lived in the Philippines as a child, Lee was raised on spicy, fragrant food and he can’t wait to share with you a range of recipes that summarises, in many ways, the food of such a diverse area. One thing is constant though, the food is always amazing!

We’ll be making a creamy and spicy Malaysian Squash & Coconut Laksa, Teriyaki Tofu Onigirazu – Japanese Sushi Sandwiches with Cauliflower Rice, fragrant Pad Thai Salad with Kickin’ Peanut Sauce and Sticky Thai Mango & Coconut Rice. There will be surprise dishes on the day too!

All dishes are gluten and sugar free.

Book Now – Day Ticket £95

 

Sunday – Spanish Fiesta Feast
Lee is in love with Spain, his family have a home on the coast in Murcia. He has just spent the summer there cooking and travelling this diverse country. These original recipes have been developed recently, using the very best seasonal produce, most are classic dishes veganized, with all the fresh and satisfying Mediterranean flavours.

We’ll be cooking a show stopping Wild Mushroom Paella, light and fluffy Pea & Mint Tortillas with Garlic Mayonnaise, rich and more-ish Andalusian Chickpeas, a Mandarin, Red Onion & Black Olive Salad and Almond Horchata. Dessert will be a twist on a classic Spanish Custard Tart, we’ll make Mini Chocolate Custard Pies (all recipes are gluten and sugar free, but satisfying decadent!).

Lee will share his passion for Spanish cooking, it’s variety, colours and big, bold flavours. With winter just round the corner, we’ll be making some satisfying classics, to ensure you have the healthy comfort food recipes you need to see you through winter. Food that is rich and gorgeous but also nourishing and packed with nutrients. A happy balance!  Any idea that Spanish food is not vegan-friendly will be quickly forgotten.

A Taste of Bliss – Our Vegan Cooking & Yoga Holiday, Spain

The beach and mountainous coastline, right outside the villa!

The Beach House Kitchen has been a little quiet of late, we’re in Spain and have just finished an amazing week of cooking, yoga, workshops, beach time and a lot more……

A Taste of Bliss was an idea we had with Will and Malene, we talked about it last year when we were in Goa and after a year of planning it was great to see it all happening, in our eco-villa, right on the beach in the beautiful little gem of a village, La Azhoia.  We envisaged a time in a beautiful location to re-energise and refresh, relax and recharge.  A time and space where we could come together and share contentment and freedom, a calm corner of the world where we could get away from it all and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.

The beautifully deisgned eco villa

Will, Jane and I shopped for days, scouring the local markets for the best produce and visiting Moroccan shops and an organic co-operative in the countryside. After picking everyone up at the airport, the bliss began! Days of restorative and relaxing yoga, healthy plant based meals on the terrace, BBQ’s, walks along the beach to little cafes, a lunch at a local taverna and not to forget a cruise on a vintage, wooden yacht. The cruise was a little choppy, we had strangely windy weather this May, but we managed to make it to a little cove where we swam and enjoyed our packed lunches.  There were also regular workshops to help us tune into peace and happiness offering tips and techniques to living a healthy and vibrant lifestyle.

The Beach House Kitchen excited to be on a boat!

The week went so quickly and we didn’t want it to end, we have decided that this will not be the last Taste of Bliss, watch this space or join our Vegan Cooking with Beach House Kitchen group on Facebook to hear about our future plans.

We’re spending the next month in Spain on the beach, perfecting our paella’s and working on a few projects.  After that we’ll drive, zig zag style, back to the UK via Portugal.

La Sirena – our beautiful yacht for a day

We’d like to thank all of the lovely group who attended A Taste of Bliss and our partners in bliss, Will and Malene from Complete Unity Yoga (who took many of these pictures).  We’d also like to thank my Mum and Dad for all the support and our friends in the bay who all lent a hand (plus pots and pans) and contributed to making the week extra special.

Lunch is served! Healthy, plant-based, using only local produce

Time for a dip!

All meals served outside on the terrace overlooking the beach

The chefs hard at work;)

Spectacular sunsets

On a ripe avocado hunt;)

View from the villa

Rainbow fridges:)

You will need a good appetite at A Taste of Bliss:)

Morning yoga on the terrace

Down at the local market

Some words from the group that summed up their experience – Peace, Nourishing, Educational, Relaxing, Unique, Healing, Community, Delicious, Transformational, Life-changing, with many people inspired to cook healthy plant-based food at home and continue a routine of positive yoga and meditation.

A Taste of Bliss ’18

Big thanks to our brilliant A Taste of Bliss group – out on a walk in the sun

If you like the look of these photos, we’re running another vegan cooking holiday in Cornwall this July, details here. We have a couple of spaces left.

Hope you all have a brilliant summer and we hope to see you again soon somewhere in the UK, Spain or beyond…..

Vibrant Vegan Manchester – What a weekend!!

Vibrant Vegan Manchester in full swing

 What a weekend!  We took our Vibrant Vegan workshop to the North West and loved every minute!!

 

On Saturday we got set up and then explored Manchester, a vegan paradise for sure, loads of amazing vegan restaurants.  Then Sunday, BOOM!, Vibrant Vegan kicked off in the awesome Food Sorcery in Didsbury.

Umami burgers with pressed salad and avocado – some of the amazing food produced by the vibrant vegans on the day!

The snow caused some problems for people travelling, anyone who couldn’t make it, we’ll see you in the autumn hopefully!  Everyone who did brave the elements, what an lovely group!  We shared a top day of cooking and getting to know each other.  I’m blown away at how well people work together and share cooking skills and good times.

The food all looked and tasted amazing and was ready bang on time, what an achievement, considering it was quite a complex menu and we’re all working in a new kitchen.

The kitchen buzzing with activity. Awesome to see:)

 

“…The day was an absolute eye opener for me. I found my self surrounded by really inspiring and enthusiastic vegan cooks..immersed in a world of new flavours and exciting alchemy. Lee created a relaxed, lively and great fun learning environment. Each dish was orchestrated with time for questions and ladles of encouragement. His team were Lovely; they worked really hard to ensure that everything was at hand, washed up immediately, so we could all focus purely on the glorious creations.  I enjoyed every minute of the day, and the superbly equipped venue and location was perfect.” Anita

 

We all then sat down to enjoy the gifts of our hard work, a healthy soul food feast; Umami burgers, Mexican Brownies with Dulce de Leche, Sweet Potato Mac and Cheese, BBQ Pulled Jackfruit, Mushroom Bacon with Chipotle Mayo. Yum!!

Vibrant vegans washing up;)

Thanks to all who came and contributed in such an open hearted way.  You’re amazing!!

I even do the waiting on tables;)  Lunch time

Plus, big thanks to Unicorn Groceries for being one of the coolest shops we’ve ever visited, plus Network News North Wales for delivering our recipe booklets mid Siberian blizzard, Tyddyn Teg Farm for picking our organic veggies in the snow and Mandy, Mark and Jane, the vibrant vegan crew, plus all those who stayed at the end to help wash up.  Legends!!

Also huge thanks to Food Sorcery for accommodating the BHK’s many needs;)  So much good will and kindness coming together to make a very tasty and fun event.  Thanks to all!!  See you soon back in the North West.

Nita loving the burgers and the brownies:)

“Soul Food with Lee was a raucous feast of creativity and deliciousness! We cooked for hours, and scoffed our way through our creations: mac n cheese, BBQ-pulled jackfruit, caramel sauce, n’ice cream brownies, burgers and mayo…and all vegan? Magic. His supportive facilitation and teaching allowed us to relax right into the cooking, playing with new tastes and techniques. As a non-vegan, I’ve come away feeling totally inspired about the food I put into my body (if you don’t know about how amazing black beans are yet, look them up), making some more vegan choices, and proudly cooking a few more vegan meals for my family. If you’re looking for new possibilities to unleash your kitchen creativity, get yourself down to the Beach House Kitchen.”  Rhiannon

Our workshops are a mix of demonstrations and loads of hands on cooking.  This was all about Aquafaba.

Happy cooking, L+J:)x

For all our upcoming workshops, holidays, demos and retreats, check out our event page.  We may be heading to your area!
