Cooking over a wood fire, an Anna's Eats event

Ready for an encounter with fire?

In a highly urbanized, goal-oriented, productivity-driven world, we have lost our connection to our intuition and wilderness, but also to our community.

Taking the time to cook together over a wood fire in nature and feeling the energy of the fire helps us reconnect with our authenticity and rediscover the pleasure of creating bonds with people who share the same taste for nature and discovery.

Nature and connection

To reconnect with the simplicity of everyday life and travel to your inner lands

Welcome

I am Anna

I think I fell into a pot on a campfire when I was a kid! Since then, I've been cooking: for me, my family, my students, my friends. At the stove or at the campfire, my wish is to value the ingredients that I find around me. 

Three things can get me up in the middle of the night:

The smell of the mountain meadows in summer
Everything that tastes smoky, except fires
Reading crime novels that talk about cooking
Anna Décosterd, creator of Anna's Eats

My journey

I was born in northern Poland, spent my childhood in Morocco and my adult life in Switzerland. These different cultures have inspired my vision of the world and my cooking of course!

It is my passion for nature, the quiet simplicity of everyday life and the recipes that make you smile that you will find on my site.

I recommend this culinary experience! I not only spent a super day in nature, but I also shared a delicious feast with passionate and inspiring people! Thank youuuu
Patricia
I couldn't have spent this Sunday in better ways, the experience is so enriching and inspiring, everything is very well organized on the timing level, pace, workload, recipes (all organic and local ingredients!). I truly recommend this workshop for singles, couples, families or work teams !

I had a wonderful experience thanks to Anna. We were a small group. We lit and tended the fire and then cooked our meal from appetizer to dessert. We laughed a lot and learned a lot... Gathered around a nice table, warm in a cabin, we ate together and shared a wonderful moment. It was as if this experience around the fire had created an unexpected complicity between us...
Tania
Thank you!! I cannot wait to do it again! 
Sabine
A big thank you Anna for granting us the privilege of participating in this first culinary experience of campfire cooking ✨what else can be said but to let yourself be tempted by this extraordinary and timeless culinary experience. What joy!

That was just an amazing experience, we will remember for a long time! Open fire cooking is a delightful method of preparing your meals, which takes you out of the kitchen, is far more attractive and social, and produces tastes your stove never could!

It's almost past winter...which is a little strange, in fact. It's almost as if a long-awaited guest had run off as soon as he'd finished his meal. What do you mean, you're leaving already? We've barely had time to chat! Wouldn't you like one last stew, one last wintry silence, one last smile lit only by a roaring fire?It was a winter full of projects, questions and reflections. I didn't see it go by. I'm not sure I'm very good at nostalgia, but sometimes...I just feel like something's simmering there.It's almost not winter anymore...it's a bit strange, actually.

Between these snapshots, 40 years (give or take) have danced by. The first one, a mere few months back, captured in a friend's garden right after I submitted my application for an allotment of my own. The rest? Ah, the nostalgic scenes of my Moroccan childhood oasis. It's like an invisible thread, weaving through the tapestry of time, unbroken and enduring. Have you felt this thread of continuity in your own life? If you're curious about the story behind these gardens, hop on over to the blog—I spill all the details there.Now, I've been meaning to jot this down sooner... but life had other plans. One health hiccup after another, and here we are, at the tail end of February, and I've yet to pen a single word to you. But trust me, I've got loads to share.First things first, a bit of news that even caught me off guard: I've got a garden! And let me tell you, it's opening doors to a whole new world of possibilities. You know those cooking adventures we've shared over an open flame? Many of you have expressed a longing to recreate those recipes in your own green space. Well, guess what? Soon, we'll be cooking up a storm right in the garden! And when we gather in the forest to cook, it'll be an even deeper, more soul-stirring connection with nature.While I await my first harvest of figs, apples, and blackberries, I'm dreaming, learning, and unearthing long-forgotten memories from my childhood sanctuary. And as soon as the weather cooperates, I'll be dishing out ideas for you to whip up... with your own veggies or some fresh finds from the market. So, before we set sail into this new year, destination unknown, I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude for all that you've brought into my life. And I want to urge you to chase your dreams, whether they're garden-shaped, wanderlust-fueled, or business-minded. Dream big, get a little wild! I can't wait to share the ride with you in 2024. 🌟 #garden #gardening #childhoodmemories #entreprenur #nostalgia #outdoorcooking #firecooking #newprojects
My cabin in the snow... I've finally got the chance to show it to you in its white coat! And also to answer a question you often ask me: why this place? Aren't there places closer to Lausanne or Geneva? Yes, of course, I could choose refuges closer. But... take a look at these photos. What I'm proposing is a total immersion in nature. In the middle of the forest, in a magical place, a hut surrounded by immense, benevolent trees. It's also a sheltered place to cook outside, whatever the weather. Is it raining? Is it snowing? It doesn't matter! We're well protected to cook our meals. This comfort, which I absolutely wanted to offer you, was not easy to find! I'd also like to take you on a little journey. You often tell me that when you set off along the path to the refuge, you wonder if this is really the route to take. Yes, you're going to go deep into the forest, there won't be many passers-by, and you'll feel a bit like leaving civilisation behind. It's worth it, even if it's not necessarily the next door. Finally, behind the place, there's also a village, a community. Even though I don't live there, I've been welcomed, helped and supported. By renting this refuge, I know that I'm helping to maintain it and bring it to life, and that this is something that is close to the heart of a municipality and its inhabitants. There's nothing anonymous about it. It's precious and important. There will only be 6 dates for cooking in nature this year. Don't forget to book... and if you're a group of friends or a family and want to experience a moment of intense connection, drop me a line, so we can find a date together! #cabin #cabinlife #outdoors #outdoorcooking #cookinginthewild #forest #forestphotography #forestbathing
