I'm co founder of Riboudin retreats, in beautiful Normandy, France. I have a passion for good vegetarian food, and have been cooking Retreat food for several years now. I originally trained as a midwife and then Mindfulness teacher, finding my little piece of heaven to turning it into a calm oasis. We believe in nourishing you, with good food, from the inside out. Over the years we have developed seasonal vegetarian recipes, using homegrown fruits and vegetables and foraged foods, where necessary we buy locally. We aim to delight our guests and share our recipes with you.

Lovely friendly day and lots of new recipes tried and tested. My daughter has only recently become vegetarian and we came away with lots of inspiration!

I booked the experience on behalf of my wife who wrote the following review - Theresa was a perfect host for my vegan cookery experience . I am not a vegan but very interested in vegan foods . This experience was well planned and I loved the way we all cooked meals together and then shared the food with a glass of cool rose wine at lunch time . Would highly recommend this in a very beautiful rural setting .

I did this activity with 2 friends during our weekend trip to Normandy. Theresa gave us a warm welcome in her beautiful home. We all took part in different aspects of the cooking and she was giving us tips and ideas for vegan and veggie cooking even beyond the many dishes we prepared. Then we all enjoyed the big lunch together in her garden with her family. Really really lovely way to spend a morning/early afternoon before we headed on to the cliffs of Etretat, and definitely some recipes I'll make again!

My daughter (16) and I had a wonderfull experience at Theresa's home, taking a veggie cooking class on a cloudy morning. We made delicious dishes, she shared her cooking knowledge in a most natural way. It was only the 2 of us at this class, but that made it all the more unique. Theresa is a warm person, interesting and interested in her guests. She makes a 'damn good coffee' as well 😊. Thank you, Theresa!
