The Shou Sugi Ban House culinary philosophy is born from our belief that true health is grounded in nature. We believe in the healing power of plants and a balanced diet rich in leafy greens and farm raised proteins.
We have chosen to embrace sustainability as a crucial aspect of the Shou Sugi Ban House experience. Our culinary team selects the finest locally sourced, organic foods based on hyper-seasonal collaborations with local growers and purveyors. Additionally, our biodynamic gardens are intentionally harvested to produce an array of leafy greens and superfoods that will be roasted, juiced and fermented.
Shou Sugi Ban House’s plant-rich culinary program was designed in collaboration with Michelin-starred chef Mads Refslund. Combining his no-waste philosophy with the property’s guiding principles of wellness and sustainability has created a balanced menu that changes with the season.
Dining at Shou Sugi Ban House
Our culinary program has been thoughtfully chosen to encourage a reflective and nourishing environment.
Our open-concept, demonstration kitchen evokes transparency between guests and their food as our communal table invites the sharing of tastes, ideas and laughs among guests and staff. Every meal is planned with careful attention to your needs and the timing and communal setting are an integral part of the Shou Sugi Ban House experience.
We invite you to add on a seasonal meal at our communal table during any visit. We do our best to accommodate dietary restrictions, including vegan and gluten-free options. Please inform guest services of any dietary restrictions and allergies upon booking.
Lunch and dinner are offered as set times and shared amongst all guests on property.
