Those that participated in the recent Prague Summer Taiji Residential training were extremely fortunate to have the experience of letting our Italian Chef, Stefania, play with the balance of our taste buds!
Every morning, midway through the 3.5 hour training session, Stefania would unveil another “Snack Masterpiece”. Not only were the snacks delicious but very healthy too…from exquisite hummus to succulent cakes mmmm…I think people must have been more interested in coming for the food than the training.
The exciting news is that Stefania has created a wonderful little book, Taiji Food, detailing all 31 of the recipes she created over the Residential, and thanks to her generosity its completely Free!!!..
Are you desperate to find some really high quality tea to buy?
We may have the answer…
Two of our Instructors, Zdravko and Alex are importing some amazing tea from China and Taiwan.
Alex has just initiated the Tea Club – a place where we can better offer some beautiful teas from around the world.
“Sometimes it will be oolongs from the Wuyi mountains, and sometimes there will be green teas. And then white, and then pu-erh. There are so many regions, farmers and variety in tea to be explored. We love it. And we hope you do too.”…
