Stephanie’s strength is to always keep learning, exploring and creating. Her love for food brings her to the local farms, as well as far-away flavours.
Stephanie’s expertise is in plant-based and vegetarian cooking, retreat cooking, wellbeing hosting and sustainable gastronomy. She loves to create beautiful experiences through food, both in the kitchen and at the table. Working with food, is a wonderful way to nourish our bodies, our loved ones and a world that treads gently on the earth and its resources.
Beyond that, she loves to explore food culture. With a background in cultural anthropology, she has always loved storytelling and discovering wisdom in the people, traditions and practices surrounding our daily meals.
