salad dressing

The retreat kitchen is where my heart truly lies.


I love to create wholesome, healthy dishes to excite the palate and nourish the body.

Everything is made fresh each day; sourdough bread, salad spreads or decadent plated meals; all celebrating fresh seasonal produce, with vibrant colour and fermented flare.

I use only organically grown ingredients, sometimes from my own garden, aiming to produce the absolute minimum of waste, even home composting the peelings and trimmings.

“Joe’s mastery with flavour and vegan cuisine is second to none.”

Putting the treat in retreat.

Sharing a meal is an integral part of any retreat experience. A time for reflection, connection & nourishment.
High vitality food that won’t cost the earth is the perfect pairing.

Each retreat is different, the menu is tailored to suit. Whether you need sugar-free, gluten free or high protein dishes, I love creating menus that honour both the ingredients and the body.
Inclusive dining means catering for any dietary need.

I can also hold workshops in fermenting- vegetables, nuts or kombucha, or simply creating a balanced meal together exploring the seasons produce to give a variety of texture, colour and flavour.

Have a look at our sample menu.

I was lucky enough to bring a group of hungry yogis to Holwell Holistic Retreat which was catered beautifully by Satori food. I really can’t fault Joe’s cooking which was hearty, healthy and delicious. The food was thoughtfully planned and presented with generous portions and with great attention to detail and I found Joe charming and very easy to collaborate with.

John Collins – Retreat Host

Joe catered for 34 guests for a lunch party to celebrate our daughters 30th birthday.  She is on a plant based diet and to add to the challenge she is also on a gluten free diet.  Her wish was to be able to eat everything,  Our 34 guests, most of whom were carnivores, were truly amazed by the wonders of a plant based menu.  A delicious 3 course feast using seasonal and locally sourced ingredients  with tremendous variety in taste, flavour, colour and texture.  We were all so impressed.  A large part of the cooking and prep was done in our home kitchen, Joe was highly organised, efficient and left the kitchen spotlessly clean.  He had even baked fresh bread on the day!  We would not hesitate to recommend him.

Ann Simon – Popup Restaurant Customer

I’ve been running retreats in the UK and abroad for almost 11 years and probably hosted at least 150 day and weekend yoga retreats in that time. I would gladly say Joe’s catering was up there with some of the best. I loved his vibe, a super cool, chilled, happy soul who clearly loves food and nourishing people very much.

Saira Francis – Mellulah Yoga

As a retreat teacher sharing weekends at different Uk venues, I can honestly say Joe is my favourite retreat chef! His meals are not only delicious and beautiful on the plate, but they feel good for the soul too. His passion for sourcing local, organic produce to create and share plant-based seasonal dishes is such a pleasure to enjoy. No request is ever too much trouble too, always accommodating to guests specific needs with ease and a smile! Thanks Joe. Can’t wait to enjoy your food again soon.

Joe’s mastery with flavour and vegan cuisine is second to none. Take ordinary vegetables, pass them to Joe, and BAM you’re faced with seriously delicious plates of good-looking food.
