After a meditation or a group session, a meal with friends in the “Zorba” restaurant in Miasto is certainly one of the most nutritious and interesting things of the day. Our kitchen prepares strictly vegetarian meals with vegetables, legumes and mostly organic cereals seasoned also with the awareness and care that permeates the actions and work of our staff.
In the dining room, you can find a hot buffet consisting of a first course, a second course and a side dish mainly inspired by Italian regional cuisine, always accompanied by brown rice, legumes and boiled or steamed vegetables without any seasoning. Particular attention also dedicated to those who have food needs related to dairy products, wheat or products derived from animals.
Among the variety of products used, a particular mention deserve the Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil of the nearby hills, the Brown Sea Salt IGP of Trapani, the Organic Tuscan Honey or the famous Pecorini (sheep cheese) of Pienza. In the evening, Red Wine and Vernaccia of San Gimignano make their appearance on the tables.
“My disciples are vegetarian not as a cult, not as a creed. They are vegetarians because their meditations make them more human, more of the heart, and they can see the whole stupidity of people killing living beings for their food. It is their sensitivity, their aesthetic awareness that makes them vegetarians.
I don’t teach vegetarianism; it is a by-product of meditation”.
