Whether you are new to Plant Based Food or in need of some inspiration this four day Rebel Recipes Food Retreat is for you!
Led by Niki Webster creator of Rebel Recipes and Andrea Dillistone of Mariola Secreta, this Retreat will showcase how fresh, wholesome, unprocessed plants can be combined into food with super delicious flavours, amazing textures and vibrant colours.
