I see retreats as a place to connect, expand, and nourish, whether their intention is yoga, personal development, meditation, dance, or entrepreneurial. The food is vital to this, and I am committed to matching the retreat’s energy with intentional food preparation.
Retreats have been my primary culinary focus since 2014, and I’ve pioneered the yoga retreat catering industry and mentored many connected and aspiring chefs through my online platform More Pleaze.
I am trained in holistic nutrition, classic culinary arts, Ayurvedic cooking, raw food cuisine, Hawaiian medicinal food, and more. I also am a part-time yoga teacher myself.
I bring not only food to retreats but also aligned assistants (most of them are also yoga teachers!), intentional beverages (my Kangen machine comes with me!), and overall energetic ambiance (I bring altars, oracle cards, sage, and more).
This menu guide reflects the most popular styles of retreat-style catering, but customization is always available. It’s very important to me to be an asset to the retreat, and for the food to help empower both the hardworking leaders as well as the participants in their journey.
I am a full-time Maui resident, and am very familiar with the island’s local produce, vendors, products, and retreat centers, and am proud to be a recommended chef at many venues. I also travel for select work and am frequently in California, where I grew up and lived in San Francisco for my 20s, up and down the coast to prepare my food.
Retreat catering is a fully immersive experience, and although the work is labor-intensive physically and mentally, it is a true honor to support sacred space. Thank you for your consideration In bringing me into your intentional event.
