In February 2015, I spent some time in Auroville, a spiritual community where many community projects take place around different types of natural farming, forestation, making local communities sustainable with traditional knowledge and handicrafts, teaching languages and many others.  I had the delight of visiting an organic permaculture farm, Solitude which is open for lunch to visitors.

The food was so beautifully served and presented that it was a delight for the heart.  Volunteers toiled hard to make every plate look beautiful, decorated with edible flowers.  They took special care to ensure there was a variety of colours on the plate.  We were first served delightful smoothies.  They had options of green smoothie and an orange coloured papaya smoothie.

Eating involves all our five senses and the Solitude kitchen really knew that.  They delighted the sense of sight with a visual display that looked like a painters colouring pallet.  The aromas were natural as we sat in a forest setting to eat, hearing the wind rustling the trees nearby.  The textures on the plate and in our mouths too were delightful ranging from the chewy rage roti to the softness of the flower which was almost too beautiful to eat.  The taste was simple, subtly flavoured and utterly scrumptious.  It really was a very memorable meal memory that I took away that day.

Thank you to all those who farmed, cooked, prepared and served our food with such love and attention so that we could simply sit and enjoy it.

    I have been to solitude farm drivend by permaculture curiosity. I was really impressed to acknoledge that all of the food was grown there according to sustainable principles. It was truly delicious as every dish was a personal and innvoative interpretation of ‘indian cooking’. Thank you all fot the special experience
