Let Us Nourish Your Guests
We take all the stress out of this very important element of any retreat, so you can focus entirely on your guests and your own magic, knowing they will be nourished with beautiful meals. After an initial consultation we work to design a delicious, healthy, balanced menu that works in with your planned activities and dietary requirements.
We love to take you on a journey around the world, creating interesting, balanced and varied menus to wow and nourish, often introducing people to new flavours and ingredients.
This is a full service, taking care of every aspect from menu planning, shopping, cooking, serving and clearing up. All cooking is done on site at the location of your retreat and as we are based on the Sunshine Coast we generally don’t need accommodation unless your event is over an hour away (for distances over 40 mins away we do charge a small travel fee).
We can cover all dietary requirements including vegan, gluten free and keto. We only use free range meats and eggs, cold pressed oils and focus on locally grown seasonal produce where possible.

Two Qualified Chefs with Passion
The best experience with retreat catering in the world. Not only do they make the MOST INCREDIBLE dishes the love that gets poured into each and every meal makes our experiences stand out from the crowd. I literally have people booking back in for my retreat because of how much they enjoy it! You are treated as family and real care is taken with the prep and presentation. They are truly sensational and I am beyond blessed to work with this incredible family. Not your average retreat chefs, I have tried many in the past and we will never look back. They are an integral part of our experiences. Yummmmmmm!!!
What Our Clients Say
“I am over the moon that we chose Claude’s for our retreat catering! We have worked together for the last 3 years now, and they are a complete joy to work with! From a facilitator perspective they offer amazing service. They are organised and efficient, as well as intuitive with our needs during
retreat. But best of all, their food is fantastic and our participants absolutely love them! Healthy, nutritious and delicious meals, great desserts and a few laughs! We always receive great feedback from our ladies about the amazing food on our retreats! It makes a huge difference as a facilitator to trust that this side of our retreat offering is always looked after so beautifully. Thank you Claude and Jon!”

“Well, when it comes to catering you guys did an outstanding job – absolutely OUTSTANDING. So many great, uplifting, healthy, tasty, nutritional meals! I honestly don’t think I can thank you both enough for your amazing talents and efforts. You blew the minds of these ladies each time! Many had never tried a green smoothie, tofu, tempeh, jackfruit etc etc etc. AND they LOVED it! Gobbled it up! In providing such wonderful food you supported my efforts to have them recalibrate their bodies and minds and go home with a physical experience of what HEALTH looks and feels like and how LITTLE time it takes to change things!
Personally, I loved your professionalism, your dependability, your adaptability, your willingness to work with me and supply what I/we needed, your creativity which knows no bounds, and all the small touches.
And something else: that you may not realize (or perhaps you do?) is that you did 2 jobs. The way you two work together, in such a happy, connected, fluid and intuitive fashion; you provided the women with an experience of seeing a woman in her full-flow of creativity (which is the role of the feminine) and the man in his role of supporting her to do just that (which is the role of the masculine: support, structure and protection). This was what they all commented on in between meals, as you both worked away. You gave them an experience of seeing what a healthy male-female team looks and sounds like. This changed their outlook on relationships and maybe their futures! Well done!

“I cannot recommend Claude and Jon highly enough. The food they create is simply outstanding – every meal is a work of art that not only looks beautiful but tastes absolutely incredible. From the very first bite, you can tell that everything is super fresh, nutritious, and nourishing, and it’s clear that they put a lot of thought and care into selecting the highest quality ingredients. Not only is the food delicious, but Claude and John themselves are an absolute delight. I literally don’t ever want to run a retreat without them there. They bring such positive energy and warmth to the retreat, my guests always love their company. It’s clear that they genuinely care about the well-being of each and every guest. Their passion for what they do is infectious, and it’s hard not to feel inspired by their love for food and cooking. All in all, I cannot imagine a more perfect catering experience than what Claude and John provide. If you’re looking for fresh, nutritious, and visually stunning food with a big ‘wow’ factor, and served up by two of the most genuinely lovely people you’ll ever meet – I very highly recommend Claude’s food.”

“I have had the honour of Claude’s Food catering 6 of my retreats since 2021 and they are a part of my retreat family. This is truly such a supporting, flowing, loving experience each and every retreat. It begins
prior to retreat, I send over the details of my program and Claudia is able to create such an exquisite menu, catering for all the requirements for my women, she always marries it so well with each workshop we are doing.
At the retreat Claudia and Jon are so friendly and helpful towards me and all the women, as the amazing aroma’s come from the kitchen we tend to want to ask questions about the food and chat with them, they are always so happy to do so.
Claudia is a master at delivering all the meals in any retreat space, even if she hasn’t been to that location before. This allows me to flow with my retreat and do the workshops as I always know that we are well looked after at meals times. All the meals not only taste divine but are presented to us in such a loving manner by Jon.
The most common quote from the women is ‘this meal tastes like it is made from love’, and it always is, it’s all the small touches that make it really special. This is something you need to experience if you haven’t yet. Claudia and Jon thank you both and we love you. xx”
