The love for food and sustainability brought MeNu and Humus Botanical Gastronomy together.
A food expert and a qualified mindful chef provide a warm beacon in the city.
Locally grown vegetables and respect for tradition create a unique sensory experience where eyes, ears, hands and taste buds are addressed.
At their long table they like to share food and great stories about the farmers, natural wine makers and delicious cheeses.

Becoming a wine sommelier takes years of study, but the most important skill for savoring with all five senses is the ability to be completely in the moment. We can only identify the character and nuances of a wine, its grape varieties and terroir, when no conflicting thoughts disturb the tasting session. Mindfulness can thus be the facilitator to get detached of past events and future to-do's, and cultivating an open, curious mind (mushin) for new experiences.

During the Mindful Tasting Session participants learn skills to be fully present, taking in the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and sensations happening in the here and now. 


The session includes:

4 wines (bubbles, white, red, sweet wines)

4 food pairings
