PLANT-FOCUSED TRAVEL / RETREAT CHEF - San Francisco Bay Area + Beyond

Julia’s experience cooking for adventure retreats spans five summer seasons.

She has a thirst for travel, previous experience in photography production — read: planning + logistics! — and an understanding of the delicate balance in providing nourishing, yet comforting meals to fuel the daily adventure.

She customizes menus to satisfy varying dietary restrictions, and is a calm presence amongst all the moving parts.

Julia has cooked for white water kayaking, rock climbing + surf retreats in remote locations such as Lilliwaup, Skykomish + Leavenworth (WA), Tarkio and Clyde Park (MT), Kemah (TX), Truckee, Santa Barbara + San Anselmo (CA), Estes Park (CO), Hood River + Merlin (OR), the Outer Banks (NC), Jasper (AR) and Hoback (WY), as well as providing nourishment for female leaders in tech at the FTW Retreat in Mont-Tremblant, Québec.

She’s prepared daily breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and dessert for weekend getaways, as well as multiple week-long programs.
