Kirsten Huesch

Kirsten has been cooking for as long as she can remember but decided to make this a career choice when she attended Bettina Bordi’s retreat chef academy and Wild Food Cafe’s vegan food courses in London in 2019.

She now caters for wellbeing retreats all over the UK and further afield. For her, there is nothing better than designing seasonal menus and preparing tasty food that helps people discover just how delicious plant-based food can be and share tips, tricks and recipes with guests.

Her aim is to make people feel cared for and nourished through her food and to pass on her love for what she does with every plate she serves.

Reviews from past retreats

I loved every part of my retreat at Sunset Bay! I went to their first ever Veganuary retreat and it was so relaxing, refreshing and nourishing. I feel like I spent a week there although it was only three days! I would highly recommend and will happily come back, could not have wished for a better experience for my first trip to Wales 🙂
Best vegan retreat in Wales!

At a crossroads in my life I decided I needed some ‘me’ time and to get away for a while. I couldn’t have chosen a better place to come. The team is absolutely fabulous and the 5 days were perfectly put together and delivered to the highest standard. I will definitely book again and would not hesitate to recommend Sunset Bay Well-being Retreats ♥️
Say ‘yes’ to this Retreat! It’s the best 🤩

The most amazing 5 days ever!! Fantastic Chapel, fantastic hosts, Maggie and Graham and the rest of their team! I went on my own and I’m so glad I did! It’s something everyone should experience and I’m definitely going back next year!! If I could give a 6 star review I would! Highly recommended.
