The French Countryside Retreat

The French Foodie Luxury Retreat

Learn how to cook restaurant quality, plant-forward meals in the beautiful city of Chartres!

Explore the region, spend an afternoon at the spa, engage in fun cooking classes & go on fun foodie excursions.

January 22-25, 2023!

This is a REALLY SPECIAL retreat where you'll be spoiled at a high end spa, taste wines in an underground wine cellar, enjoy food at the highest end restaurants of Chartres, & learn how to elevate your plant-based cooking with Katrina!

In the classes we'll focus on mostly plant-based foods, but you'll have a chance to eat poultry, seafood, or other meats during the retreat if you desire.

Hi, I'm Katrina!

I'm your American cooking instructor recently relocated to France.

My roots are in sustainability and I love to make internationally-inspired food with simple, wholesome ingredients accessible to all. I've taught cooking classes for 9 years, have been closely involved with the Slow Food movement as a US delegate to Terra Madre in Turino, Italy, and was the Seed-to-Table Cooking Instructor for Slow Food Denver, Colorado.

I've been a francophile for a while now. As a French major in college I spent a year in Grenoble, France, and speak the language fluently. I've fully embraced French culture and love the slower pace of life here, and that as a culture they know how to slow down sometimes and enjoy the finer things of life. Even if that's simply enjoying a drink on an outdoor patio in the sunshine, or a picnic in a park. 

I can't wait to show you around this beautiful region of France!

~ Katrina
