your veg dreams. realised.

It may sound too good to be true, but you really can have your own personal vegetable genie to make your food wishes come true. If you are looking for vegetarian and vegan food with a difference, I am personally available as a private chef for events for residential retreats, family holidays and corporate off-sites. Accessible, inclusive food - no dogma, no politics, just yumminess.

I will take care of everything from menu design to ingredient sourcing and of course, the cooking. Just ask me!

I specialise in plant-based cooking that focuses on flavour, simplicity and the quality of ingredients. I don’t do style over substance - I just do natural, nutritious food, packed full of flavour, love and joy. I have almost a decade’s experience as a professional chef, most of which has been running my own business including food and yoga retreats in the UK and abroad. Over this time I have developed my own style an approach to cooking, focusing on flavour and ingredients and aiming for a full sensory experience rather than concentrating solely on visual impact at the expense of flavour. For me success is in doing more than just feeding my clients, it comes from nourishing their souls and inspiring their eating going forwards.

So take your wellness event, retreat or holiday to the next level with a professional private chef to create amazing fresh and nutritious dishes to wow and nourish your guests. I offer a fully vegetarian service, with a huge range of vegan, grain free, nut free and sugar free options to suit all tastes and dietary restrictions. I will take all the hassle out of feeding your guests so that you can focus on delivering an amazing experience. My bespoke service can be tailored to your needs and includes:

  • All pre-planning and menu development, primarily drawing on my huge collection of original recipes and dishes (with a focus on local, seasonal produce)

  • Sourcing and transport of ingredients where required (vegan and gluten free diets easily catered for)

  • All on-site cooking

  • Sharing platters or buffet style service (depending on venue and number of guests)

  • In addition, cooking workshops and private classes can also be arranged for your foodie guests
