What is a retreat at retreat center The Land of Now in the Netherlands

The Land of Taste

Ethical Food & Drinks

Our food concept the Land of Taste brings an inspiring vision
on food, taste and ethics together.

With great passion we provide the food & drinks during your stay, we design new products or we inspire you during workshops and lectures.

With the recipes and menus designed by chef Juliette Reniers , we amaze you with taste and we not only provide suitable meals, but also ‘food for the soul’.

Whether it concerns a lunch or a multi-course dinner, we will amaze you with taste.

We work with fresh and mostly organic quality products. Sustainability and vegetables play the leading role in a refined palette of flavors, where we inspire you with surprising dishes.

Surprising to you. Great for the world.

The 6 flavors

Feast for the senses

In Ayurveda, 6 flavors are distinguished. The 6 flavors provide the building blocks for a meal that is not only a feast for the senses, but also nourishing for body and mind.

Digestibility and the seasons are taken into account, and it is in line with current developments.
