Of Land and Sea: A Culinary Immersion Hosted by Chef Mads Refslund

Thursday, September 17 – Sunday, September 20 
Friday, October 9 – Monday, October 12

Enjoy a long weekend this fall in celebration of the culinary arts, the healing power of plants and the abundance of the East End. Hosted by our acclaimed chef Mads Refslund, this three-night, all-inclusive retreat program will nourish the mind and body.

The Shou Sugi Ban House culinary philosophy is born from the belief that true health is grounded in nature and food is medicine. Developed with Michelin-starred chef Mads Refslund, combining his no-waste philosophy with the property’s guiding principles of wellness and sustainability- we have created a balanced menu that changes with the season. Our Culinary Immersion retreat will introduce you to the finest locally sourced, organic foods and wholesome workshops, based on seasonal collaborations with local growers and purveyors and our resident nutritionist.

The multi-day program begins with an introduction to our shared culinary philosophy and dinner, followed by a cacao ceremony before guests return to their private studios for a seasonal soak. Other highlights from the four-day itinerary include a foraging excursion, microgreens workshop, picnic lunch, culinary demonstration, fireside conversations and music, and morning beach walks or yoga.  Interact with local, wild and abundant ingredients used in meals, encouraging discovery and connection with the natural bounty that surrounds us.
