Winter Wellness Retreat
REFRESH, RESTORE and NOURISH with Stefano Manfredi and special guest chef Holly Davis.
Sunday July 21 to Wednesday July 24, 2013.
Acclaimed wholefood chef and educator, author and founder of Iku Wholefoods Holly Davis has teamed up with Stefano Manfredi and the Manfredi at Bells team to offer a 4 day wellness program.
Holly and Stefano will share their skills and knowledge, inspiring ideas, recipes and tips as they teach their techniques with a program of demonstration and hands-on cooking classes.
Each day will begin with a yoga class or bush walk before preparing delicious meals that restore and revitalise.
The course covers the fundamental principles of choosing, preparing and cooking nutrient dense meals to optimise nutrition and digestibility.
On days 1 to 3 Holly will teach a range of recipes to support you in making eating well an everyday option. A sample of what you will learn about: making the best stocks, lacto fermented food and drinks, making sourdough breads and dishes using whole grains, beans and sea vegetables. This class suits omnivores, vegetarians, vegans and the gluten intolerant. Dishes using sustainable fish and organic meats will be included.
On day 4, enjoy a Masterclass with Stefano Manfredi, who will lead a guided tour of the Bells gardens, orchards, bee hives, chickens and more. He will share his passion and knowledge of the 'Slow Food Movement' and the sustainable practices in place at Bells at Killcare.
The retreat will culminate with a celebratory lunch with a menu prepared by Stefano, Holly and the Manfredi at Bells team. The menu, inspired by the produce grown in the estates vegetable garden will showcase their shared values of seasonality, sustainability and freshness. Lunch will be inclusive of a selection of organic and natural wines matched to each course.
Prices are fully inclusive of three nights in a sumptuous Bells cottage or suite , 4 days of cooking classes and nutritional coaching, all meals, three yoga sessions, two meditation classes, daily bush walks and a little pampering in Bells Day Spa (30 minute massage).

Testimonial from last years course:
Jo Cassidy said this after attending Refresh Restore and Nourish in winter 2012...
"I have not however been backwards in coming forwards and telling everyone what a fabulous 4 days I had. Thank you so much. You are a warm, generous soul who was exceptionally patient, passionate and professional. I am the lady with a celiac husband and dairy intolerant preschooler who was desperate for inspiration and ideas on how to cook easy meals that cater for everyone's needs. I sought information and inspiration and came away with bucket (or shall I say, jar) loads! I felt so relaxed and happy and really nourished myself. I think I ate better in 4 days with you than I have in months! Your food was delicious and made me see how I can make some tasty gluten free and dairy free meals."
