Spirit House CD – ONE

Many years ago customers swooned over our groovy Spirit House CD – a collection of down-tempo, ethnic tracks from around the world. Sadly, the record company we used to license and distribute the CD closed and the Spirit House CD became a collector’s item.

We still get calls for the CD and thanks to the magic of the interwebs we have created a spotify playlist of the tracks – except for two tracks that aren’t available on spotify so we swapped them with similar tracks from the same artist.

Time for some ear candy:

How much do you share on social networks

Jack Vale appears to be an incredible mentalist as he freaks people out at local eateries with intimate details about their lives. It’s how he finds this information that is both incredible and scary and something you should show anyone who is constantly tweeting, instagramming or facebooking on their phones. Check out the video below:

Swedish Chef Vs Gordon Ramsay

This is seriously awesome – the Swedish chef in a food van war with Gordon Ramsay and Gordon does all his own ‘bleeping’ – it’s a family show after all. Check it out:

Follow us on Instagram

Well, it’s taken a while but my 13 year old niece has been rattling my cage about getting Spirit House on Instagram so you can share photos and that sort of thing.

So voila:


We’re instagramming – you can follow us and be sure to use #spirithouserestaurant if you’re tagging pics taken at the Spirit House and we’ll start rewarding the most photos we like the most etc.

Very cool wedding photos

Sometimes a photographer comes along and manages to capture essence of a Spirit House wedding perfectly. That’s why we love Ruth Ryan’s photos of Jo and Cam’s wedding.

As any professional photographer will tell you, capturing photos at Spirit House is tricky. With all the greenery and mottled light, you really need to know what you’re doing.


So, if you’re looking for a great photographer – why not get in touch with Ruth Ryan.

Learn the science behind cooking

Here’s a very unique opportunity to study with leading chefs such as Ferran AdriĆ  from elBulli as well as leading mathematicians and physicists from Harvard as they unlock the science behind cooking.

Part of Harvard’s FREE edX program you complete the course online and either do it for your own enjoyment or gain a Certificate of Mastery should you wish to complete the exams and coursework.

If you don’t know anything about edX you should check out their other cool courses – this is the future of education.
