Karen is the creator behind Plant Based Pirate, with over ten years experience in the catering industry. Her passion for plant based food has manifested in a variety of different cookery disciplines, from cafes and restaurants, catering for events and retreats, making and selling wholesale products, making raw chocolates, cakes and patisserie, performing live cookery demos at trade shows and food fairs and leading workshops and classes for a diverse range of participants.
The journey took her to a position as the opening Head Chef of the flagship Marylebone branch of The Gate, one of London’s oldest and most distinguished vegetarian restaurants. During her time at The Gate she was able to show how diverse and delicious plant based food can be, instigating changes to the menu which moved from having only 50% plant based dishes to being 100% free from dairy and eggs by the end of the year, and converting the owner and executive chef in the process!
Karen will provide us with delicious and nutritious, lovingly and creatively prepared meals based on Ayurvedic principals throughout our retreat.
