Hi there, my name is Claudia, I'm a chef / caterer with over 30 years experience. Having always had a passion for food and cooking, I've spent several years working and travelling through Europe, Asia and Australia, constantly learning as I go.
Now based on the Sunshine Coast, my partner Jon and I, have run a very successful market and catering business for 14 years. It's called Claude's Food, and our moto is – Fresh healthy flavours from around the world. We use quality local produce, to create bold flavours, bursting with colour and goodness.
In catering, we like to work with each individual client to create the perfect menu for their event or retreat, whilst also staying within their budget. We can cover all dietary requirements including vegan, gluten free and keto. We only use free range meats and eggs, cold pressed oils and can organise completely organic produce if preferred.
Sample menus are available on request and several photos of our food can be found on Instagram - @claudesfood or Facebook - Claude's Food. Prices vary according to numbers and meal choices, but as a general guide for a minimum of 10 people main meals are between $20-$35 per person, light meals/snacks and desserts are between $10-$15. Obviously if you request some high end produce like oysters etc this would be calculated accordingly, as would the per head price for really small groups.
Also if cooking classes are something you would like to include in your retreat, we could happily facilitate that in many cuisines, and incorporate a range dietary styles and cooking methods.
We particularly love working at Amara Retreat and have had several very happy guests at the various dance and yoga retreats we've done there. The beautiful surroundings just seem to inspire happiness and well being. Please contact me and hopefully we can work together to achieve your dream catering requirements.

Leanne has had many years nourishing on Yoga and Health and Wellness retreats, with many different principles – Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine, vegan, vegetarian, raw food
She is an intuitive nourisher and healer.
Leanne has explored many principles and systems of belief and continues to come back to and journey into a more simplistic fundamental way of living. That each of us are ultimately unique and therefore our needs for whole wellness are unique to us. That we know, intrinsically what it is that we need and that the journey to self-mastery is learning to listen to the wisdom within, dismantling the layers of belief systems that limit.
Leanne is available for consultations via skype or email.

I have been catering yoga retreats with vegetarian Ayurvedic inspired food for the soul since 2013 and am taking bookings for the year ahead. If your group is looking for the nurturing of massage, I can also provide Ayurvedic Massage or can arrange other therapists to provide this service. Whatever you're needs are, get in touch and we can go from there.
