Roxanne and her team were a dream to work with it. I host lots of road cycling retreats all over the world and I can say with assuredness she is one of the best I've ever encountered. Her prices were slightly higher than some of the others but I knew after our first call and the menu she gave me that she was 100% worth it. She was able to adjust for an array of dietary restrictions. We have a unique situation where our food needs to be gluten free and dairy free but also fuel for a week of grueling training. She was able to marry the worlds of healthy and tasty beautifully. Her food tastiest fresh and was of top quality. Everyone was raving about the food all week! If you are considering using her don't hesitate!
Pacific Zen Institute
We are Pacific Zen organization and lead large group, 5o plus people, retreats 3 times a year. We hired Roxanne as our head chef a few years ago. She can cook anything for vegetarians and vegans. Each retreat she creates the menu, 3 meals a day for the week. She does the shopping, manages the budget in an organized fashion while coordinating with our staff.
The meals have great variety, savory and are delicious. She is an excellent collaborator, willing to please and works long days. I look forward to seeing her in October for our Golden Wind retreat at Angela Center. Jan B .PZI Sesshin Coordinator
