Daphne's Buckwheat Breakfast Bowl

Daphne Lambert is an award-winning chef, author and founding member and director of Greencuisine Trust, an educational charity, set up to rethink our relationship to food. She is an expert in the field of health and nutrition and has many years of experience in helping people achieve optimum health. Daphne also leads seasonal nutritional weekend retreats at Trill called Living Nutrition, exploring the relationship between land, food, health and vitality.

Living Nutrition is a series of relaxing, practical and educational cooking courses held four times per year. Each weekend focuses on a different aspect of health - digestion, circulatory system, immunity and the importance of water; and on foraging for and cooking the current seasonal foods in the garden, hedgerows, woods and meadows.

The weekends build up a complete picture on how best to harmonise with the changing seasons and a deeper understanding of how the foods we choose to eat make a difference to the health of the environment and the individual.

Here's one of Daphne's delicious breakfast recipe recommendations from the upcoming Spring retreat: 

Sprouted Buckwheat Breakfast with Rhubarb

- Serves 1


  • handful of sprouted buckwheat
  • 1 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1 dessertspoon pumpkin seeds
  • 1 dessertspoon sunflower seeds
  • 110g almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons poached rhubarb
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax


Soak the buckwheat and seeds with the honey in the almond milk or overnight. The next morning add the rhubarb. Serve topped with ground flax.

Opportunities at Trill

4 Jan 2017 | 0 comments



We’re looking for someone to take over our soap making and run it as their own business. It’s a great example of how a small business can work: producing a necessary product, simply and ethically. It involves a little bit of magic and a lot of plants, some of which we grow at Trill in the Herb Garden. We use the products in our Guest rooms. Up to now, its been Trill Farm running the soap room but we now want to hand it over to an enthusiastic and creative individual.
If you are this person, let us know!


If you’d like to harvest the hedgerows, dry and distill the cultivated herbs and create a medicinal herbal hub at Trill Farm then this one is for you. This potential business at the heart of Trill Farm is waiting for the right passion and energy to make it a success. Give us a call if you’re interested.


We have a few spaces to rent.
The Trill concept is to create successful enterprises that work independently yet also benefit from the support and resources of each other. It’s the rural equivalent of an urban working hub. The businesses at Trill are linked by a committment to being ethical and sustainable. Contact us if you’d like to be part of our community.
