hosting a yoga or wellness retreat?

I am available as a chef for hire!


industry rate is $45 AUD/hour. please e-mail me to request a quote! let me know number of people, location, date, and meal/dietary requirements.

You set a grocery budget, and I'll design a menu that works within that that also caters to any dietary needs of you, your staff and guests. I'll do all the grocery shopping necessary during the retreat at local shops, so you can focus 100% on your guests. I'll cook everything fresh, using only the best ingredients the area has to offer. The menu will be entirely plant-based (vegan or vegetarian, no meat or fish). 

please e-mail to book, preferably at least 3-5 months prior to your retreat dates.
