Food Ethos

Food Ethos

Macrobiotics is a path, a philosophy, which recognises the importance of wholesome nourishment through quality natural food & cooking, clean air & water, & flourishing trees. It is a worldwide movement helping people take a healthy authentic path. It has been at the forefront of the creation of the natural foods movement, natural agriculture, fabrics & futons & has founded schools of Shiatsu, Feng Shui, Natural Cooking & Healing, & consciously works towards a vision of a Peaceful World.

Macrobiotics recognises that our everyday food is a powerful form of nourishment. Food makes our blood & is a building block for our physical body. Food affects how we feel, think, develop and respond to all around us. How food is grown, transported, cooked & eaten is the basis of all economies and life on Earth. Macrobiotics upholds the view that the most sustainable and healthy way to grow food is through organic, locally grown, natural agriculture and land management.

Our Meals

Our Meals

We honour the nutritional needs of vegetarians and vegans. Menu choices are delicious, plentiful and can be customised according to needs and budget on request. Many dishes are naturally vegan; others are inspired and adapted from traditional favourites and international cuisines to healthier plant-based versions. There are many different vegetable proteins available as alternatives to meat, but we also offer the flexibility of fish dishes on request. As the cooking focuses on plant-based foods, we naturally cater for most special diets, from dairy and gluten-free to low-fat and diabetic. We use fruit juices and concentrates, maple and grain syrups as well as other natural, unrefined sweeteners in desserts, cakes and biscuits, all dairy-free, but never compromise on taste.



East Chiltington is a small rural parish and home to about 180 families. Many homes are scattered along single track rural lanes, but School Cottages are situated immediately behind Hollycroft, in the centre of the parish, one of 2 clusters of housing. Here there is an open space & children's playground. An annual summer fayre is held here, & in 2012, East Chiltington hosted a soap box derby & community ceilidh. School Cottages are on Chapel Lane, leading to a beautiful 13th Century church and famous Jolly Sportsman pub. Although too small for a parish hall, school or shops (the nearest are Plumpton), East Chiltington nevertheless is a cohesive & thriving community. Many families have lived & worked here for many generations. School Cottages were built in the 1930s originally to house agricultural labourers and most land remains in agricultural use.
