The French Countryside Retreat

The French Countryside Retreat

Learn how to cook restaurant quality, plant-forward meals in a historic chateau!

September 13-17, 2022

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
