    food is nutrition for your body and soul.


    I have always been a keen believer that what you eat is important... having a connection with your food (knowing and respecting where it comes from), being kind to your body (giving yourself the nutrition you need to be healthy), and valuing variation and quality.


    overall, I believe in living consciously, kindly, calmly

    Retreat Cheffing

    "I've just come back from a yoga retreat where Bex did all the catering. The food was amazing. its was artistic and amazing taste and filling and delicious. Im not vegan, but it made me want to explore more vegan food. it enlighten my taste buds. I would highly recommend Bex's food.

    Thank you Bex and your sister. " - Fleur


    "I guess nothing I will write here will be enough to express my complete gratitude to Bex for the wonderful menus she created for us in my last yoga retreat with 22 guests. Bex is definitely not only an excellent chef but also an incredible experience creator. She is the best of the catering providers I have worked with so far as a yoga holiday facilitator. My retreats are mostly focusing on positive inspiration on & off the mat, and I was looking for a team member in the kitchen who could make my intentions possible around the dining table too. Bex certainly is the one whom I am lucky and happy to align my energy with. Bex creates food with passion, cooks with great caring attitude and serves with love! She gave us a nutritious and delicious plant based feast to enjoy the food mindfully through our all senses - even by my non-vegetarian guests. Once you try Bex's food, you will definitely crave for more!! Million thanks to Bex and her assistant for making my wish real with her delicious and scrumptious vegan art works on the table." - Aslihan

    Shoot and Crew Catering

    "Hands down the best shoot food we've ever had... so filling and great flavours. Would totally recommend and we will be using Bex again for sure. Thanks!" - Jo


    "A couple of the crew were a bit sceptical when we heard the food was going to be vegan, but I can honestly say no one missed the meat! We were stuffed, but in a light, healthy way that just made you feel good and kept you going for hours!! Especially liked the chilli - so good!" - Mike


    "I was really excited to see healthy breakfast options! Usually at shoots its lots of carbs and bread, there was still that for people who wanted it, but healthier options too. I especially loved the little chia pudding jars layered with fresh berries and nuts, so yummy. It was all really beautifully presented too. Such a treat at work!" - Rachel

    Private Cheffing

    “Bex of calm and kind prepared a three course formal supper for us the night before my sister’s wedding. As a family of eight hungry vegans, we couldn’t have made a better choice. The food was absolutely delicious and presented like works of art. In particular, we all appreciated Bex’s commitment to minimising sugar, salt and oil - something she knew we wanted and meant we all started a very special weekend feeling nourished and happy. Bex also made the wedding favours for all sixty guests - beautiful bliss balls presented in compostable biodegradable little bags with rustic twine. Perfect.” - Jenna


    "Just wanted to say thanks again for the delicious meal you cooked for us. You did a great job in accommodating the vegan, gluten free and a separate menu for the children. The flowers on the table were a lovely touch, all this and no pots or pans for us to wash up made for a perfect evening. It was a pleasure to meet you and good luck with the move to London." - Paul

    Raw Cake Workshop

    "Today I ventured out of the house and took myself off to a 'Raw Food' workshop. I have lots of mobility problems and am often housebound, so for me this was something of an adventure.

    Honestly, I could not have been made more welcome by a fantastic tutor and a really kind group. Together we shared the pleasure of making something new to us and absolutely healthy and delicious.

    I thoroughly recommend this, as it is suitable for all ages and abilities and a very useful skill for the coming schools holidays.

    I am hoping that there will be more workshops of this kind. We were given a wealth of information on where to source ingredients cheaply, how to store things and calculate calorific contents, packaging and pricing for those considering this as a business option.

    Tea and companionship thrown in, it was a really splendid day out." - Christine

    Bespoke Food Delivery

    "I just wanted to say that once again the food was so incredibly delicious! Thank you so much for everything. The vegetable tart was so fresh and light, the falafels crispy and full of flavour... everything was so yummy! Also this is not an exaggeration but the speculoos cake is the best dessert I’ve ever had." - Floriane


    "I ordered a bespoke food delivery for a friends birthday. We asked for a surprise assortment, and could not have been more impressed. Every dish was perfect, the presentation was great and it was a delicious lockdown treat (coming from a non vegan). Looking forward to trying the lime mayo and some of the other dishes on the menu. Thank you BEX" - Lou

    Bespoke Cake

    "Hi, I just wanted to say an enormous thank you for the delicious and BEAUTIFUL cake that you made and delivered to me earlier!! It has been enjoyed and admired by many. Thank you! - Buffy


    "I am absolutely delighted with the cake I ordered from Bex - behold the utter beauty that she created!
    It’s just gorgeous and I couldn’t be happier." -


    "I recently enjoyed Bex's raw chocolate tart and it was absolutely DELICIOUS!! The sweet treats look fantastic and taste amazing, all raw and healthy ingredients, I am super pleased to have found these fabulous products! Yummy!!" - Charley

    Food Delivery Service

    "I’ve ordered from Bex several times now, and each meal has been delicious and beautifully presented... a great discovery and a highlight of my lockdown week! I’ve only recently gone veggie and it’s great to find such imaginative and tasty dishes. Particular favourites so far include the mushroom soup, raw mint chocolate slice, and all of this week’s Mexican inspired dishes... look forward to seeing what’s next!" - Catherine


    "Would absolutely recommend! Great food. You need to try the peanut butter & raspberry brownies - so heavenly. Best brownies I’ve had hands down!" - Rhianna


    "Incredibly delicious food! I ordered the family size vegan shepherds pie with sides for a group of friends and everyone was raving about it. People couldn’t believe how good it was! I’ve previously also ordered the meat free meatballs (separately with marinara and Moroccan-style) and they are to-die-for. Excellent plant-based sustainable food with strong flavours, and also presented really wonderfully. I’ll definitely be ordering again!" - Meghana

    one-on-one, personal, tailored guidance for a healthier lifestyle

    who can benefit

    those who feel they would like a healthier diet or lifestyle, but don't know how to achieve it alone.

    those who think they don't have the time to lead a healthier lifestyle.

    those who would like to try plant-based cooking, but think it is expensive or time-consuming.

    those who want to regain (or develop) their love and passion for food, body and life! relish in simplicity, vibrancy, diversity, and connection.


    what to expect


    in our initial consultation, we will assess your health history, your current habits, diet and lifestyle, and your unique relationship to food. we will then establish what it is that you would like to achieve and grow towards.

    together we will work through nutritional theory, cooking techniques, recipes, and practical low-cost, low-waste, time-efficient meal-planning. every step is tailored to your individual needs, aims and desires.


    this is not about counting calories and weigh-ins - the emphasis will be on nutritious, varied and vibrant wholefoods, and building a strong, positive relationship with the food that you eat.

    how it works

    we will have regular consultations via skype, phone or in person, to check in, formulate plans and make adjustments. all material will be emailed to you.

    we will share cooking sessions and yoga tuition, either online or in person where possible.

    I am always available via email to answer any questions, or offer specific support and advice.


    we will work collaboratively, to create sustainable dietary and lifestyle changes that last


    this is a holistic process - we will explore what, when, how and why we eat, and the physical, biological and emotional effects. however, overall well-being is not solely influenced by food. we will also explore healthy lifestyle habits and stress-management, predominantly through guided yoga, meditation and pranayama.


    all sessions will be relaxed, open, supportive and non-judgemental. the aim of this process is to encourage and inspire you to find enjoyment and pleasure in how you eat, and to empower you to make healthier choices now and in the future.


    each 1 hour session is £30

    most clients choose either weekly or fortnightly sessions - this can be flexible to fit your schedule

    this cost includes unlimited email correspondence between sessions, all information sheets, yoga or exercise guidance, recipes and meal-planning that we develop together.


    you can either pay per session, or bulk-buy

    3 x 1 hour sessions £85

    6 x 1 hour sessions £170

    10 x 1 hour sessions £280


    yoga or cooking sessions

    one-on-one (via skype or in person)

    each 1 hour session is £25
