Gourmet Dining Al Fresco at Xinalani

Xinalani is known by those of us who have spent anytime there as “magic universe.” This extends to the foodie delights that are plated and served every day with such great care. This is elegant dining al fresco at it’s best. And all to the soundtrack of the ocean, with every seat ocean view.

The only more magical experience is on the last evening when the staff at Xinalani create a gourmet feast on the beach where our tastes delight in gorgeous flavors, with the fire of torches lighting our food and our feet in the sand.

Tuscany Foodie Delights Yoga Retreat

In choosing an Italy Yoga Retreat make sure to ask about the pedigree of the Chef. If you make the trip to Italy and stay at a retreat center with a non Italian chef you are doing yourself a disservice. The artistic and centuries old learnings of Italian chefs is a must experience while in Tuscany.

FOOD IS ART
