Plant Based Cooking and Yoga Retreat with Jeevi, the Laughing Chef

Join internationally trained, locally loved vegan chef, Jeevi, for a weekend of amazing food, ultimate relaxation and loads of laughter.

A Nepalese-born third generation vegetarian, Jeevi, is famously known as ‘the laughing chef,’ combing his passion for vegan cooking with his gift for laughing yoga. Jeevi has featured on Channel 9, Living Light Culinary Institute & Destination Happiness.

On this exclusive two-day retreat, you have Jeevi all to yourself, sharing his incredible knowledge of plant based foods, plant based cooking, and of course, his infectious laughter.

Each day you’ll be a part of the plant based cooking experience, learning from Jeevi as he – and you – make your delicious vegan meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

You’ll learn Jeevi’s insider tricks, delicious recipes and be privy to some of his oldest recipes, handed down from Jeevi’s own grandmother! Even better, for everything you create, you’ll get a lovely take-home folder, filled with all the mouth watering recipes you made, so you can keep wowing your friends – and yourself – with amazing plant based meals long after the retreat.
