HAPPY THOUGHTS FROM OUR GUESTS


I had been toying with the idea of ​​going vegan for a while and just didn't know how. The experience during the retreat of how tasteful and fulfilling this is motivated me to get started with this.

Laura's explanation is really great. The love she puts into preparing food is amazing. I am convinced and am happy that I have taken these steps. Thank you!

The food at Retreat Portugal is such a true taste experience that I have always wanted to experience what it is like to prepare it at home.

Of course you always receive great recipes, but doing it yourself is different. With Laura's help it is super fun and it becomes a lot easier to apply this in my life.

What a wonderful experience. I am very surprised how good I feel. The workshops were intensive to also look at myself, but that means that I now have more insight into myself. The combination of working on my health and also eating delicious food is so nice.

These days were a true gift to myself, I enjoyed them so much

WHO IS LAURA

As a little girl, Laura always cooked a lot with her mother and aunt, who taught her the basics of pastry and cooking. Her interest and passion for cooking was born and grew more every time she gathered friends and family around the table. The moments of sharing experiences and flavors made her want to become a chef.
When she obtained her degree in fine arts, she decided to take a culinary arts course at Escola de Hotelaria e Turismo, in Lisbon, to improve her skills and knowledge about food.
After working in a number of restaurants, she understood that the type of cooking she wanted to do and develop is a home cooking style, just like she does with her family. She does not identify with the restaurant method, with mass production and sometimes not very consciously.
The last restaurant she worked in for years was in Montpellier, in the south of France, a small project with a zero-waste kitchen, where she had the opportunity to manage it on her own. A space where she had the opportunity to learn a lot about Mediterranean food and to cook healthy and consciously, with local and seasonal products.
She came back to Portugal with her family to pass on her Portuguese roots to their son.
She currently works as a private Chef where she cooks delicious vegan and healthy meals, using seasonal products from local farmers. Here she has the opportunity to be in a quiet environment

"Let food be your medicine and your medicine be your food"
