Providing nutritious and nurturing food for retreat guests since 2019
About the retreats
I’ve been providing retreat catering since 2019 and have cooked for many hundreds of guests at venues and award-winning retreats across the country. I pride myself on
creating exciting and nutritious menus to a realistic budget and am very adept at coming up
with tasty food options for guests with even the most complex dietary requirements.
Food on a retreat is a massive part of the experience and I’m always humbled when a guest
provides feedback saying that my food was the highlight of their weekend. When I’m not
prepping for the next meal, I love to take the opportunity to chat with guests and share
recipes and ideas. Being told I’ve inspired someone to focus more on their food choices is
always the ultimate compliment.
I was at your retreat this weekend and the food was divine. I love desserts and yours were so unique, pretty and tasty – your day 2 dessert was the best I’ve ever tasted!

Catherine’s food has always been wonderful. For the five years that I’ve worked with her, she has been constantly exploring and trying out new recipes, tastes and ideas. Our guests are always amazed at how fantastic her vegan meals are and the positive feedback is endless. She has transformed our retreat menu to an inspired array of dishes that delight the taste buds, while somehow remaining simple, nourishing and heart warming.
Wonderfully varied and tasty meals which never fail to disappoint. Curry night is one of our favourites!
We first tried Catherine's cakes a couple of years back and have been obsessed with them ever since.. every one we've tried has been mouthwateringly delicious. We've even decided to have Catherine make our favourite Millionaires Shortbread for our wedding cakes!
Deliciously tasty food, full of flavour and goodness. Loved every mouthful - thank you
Your vegan food is phenomenal - I wish you were closer so that we could eat your food more regularly!
I was at the Zest Life retreat this weekend. The food was delicious and so nourishing.. definitely one of the highlights of the retreat
We attended a Greek inspired vegan night at Catherine’s home. The food was varied and
tasted outstanding. I would highly recommend attending one of her events.
During lockdown Wildings Vegan Kitchen offered ready meals, either fresh or frozen, for
collection. While I have been a vegetarian all my life, having taken advantage of their
delicious takeaways I am now virtually vegan. So tasty, nutritious and pleasing on the eye.
Thank you Catherine.
