Golfo Dulce / Osa Region, Costa Rica (PRWEB) December 05, 2014
Playa Nicuesa Rainforest Lodge (http://www.NicuesaLodge.com), an environmentally sensitive eco lodge set on a 165-acre private preserve in the undeveloped Pacific Coast of Southern Costa Rica, has just released an unabridged collection of 30+ exotic recipes inspired by the tropical rainforest jungle of Costa Rica; titled the "Edible Landscaping Garden Cookbook".
The free Edible Landscape Cookbook (visit Cookbook.NicuesaLodge.com) is part of Lodge's overall philosophy to provide guests with an authentic, fresh, natural, fun and sustainable travel experience. Co-owner Donna Butler explains: "Edible Landscaping is a concept of the Nicuesa food experience. It refers to the Lodge's self-sustainability of composting, gardening, farming, fishing and buying fresh produce grown locally. The fresh and locally sourced food was so delicious that it became a central element to the Lodge experience and memories that guest would take home with them."
The release of the new cookbook marks Nicuesa Lodge's 12th year of operation, offering a highly authentic experience of nature in the midst of a 165-acre private natural preserve which nestles the eco lodge and its exotic wildlife, along with the remote beaches of Golfo Dulce and the lush rainforest of the Piedras Blancas National Park. Trip Advisor has awarded Nicuesa's mix of adventure and sustainable learning experiences with the Certificate of Excellence for the last 3 years in a row.
The inclusion of epicurean activities into travel offerings is part of a larger current global travel-trend which Resonance Consultancy (a travel market research firm) defines as "Creative Tourism": travel directed toward an engaged and authentic experience. A vacation experience that provides a connection with those who reside in the destination. Nicuesa Lodge offers visitors an Edible Landscape tour, which permits them to engage with local farming activities, the harvested goods, and the resulting process of cooking an exotic dish. The new cookbook includes the most popular recipes based on guest’s comments.
Nicuesa Lodge's Edible Landscape Garden Cookbook can be downloaded for free on their website: http://Cookbook.NicuesaLodge.com and Facebook page: https://Facebook.com/NicuesaLodge; and interested parties may also upload a picture of their experience cooking the recipes before December 15th, 2014 to participate in the raffle of a trip for two during 2015 at Nicuesa Lodge.
