COOK YOUR OWN NURTURE STORY

This is the ideal gift for when you or someone you care about has a special milestone coming up and you wish to honour that through the ritual and magic of intentional food and togetherness. Here, I design you a custom menu telling that story for you to prepare at home. You do the cooking, but I’ll be by your side to support you virtually throughout. Menus are designed to meet you at the level of cooking you feel comfortable with.

THIS PACKAGE INCLUDES:

TIMELINE: 4-6 weeks in advance of your event

PRICING: $250 +HST

Your grocery & alcohol costs are extra and calculated according to a budget we come up with together.

WEEKEND RETREAT STORYTELLING

Let me take care of feeding your people while you focus on what you do best. The bonus? All of the food will be telling the story of you and your brand, while intentionally nourishing the work you and your guests are diving into.

THIS PACKAGE INCLUDES:

TIMELINE:  8-10 weeks in advance of retreat

PRICING:
8-16 guests: 
$110 +HST per person, per day (add animal protein $10 per person, per day)
2-7 guests: flat rate package $1500 +HST (add animal protein $10 per person, per day)

Optional: add alcohol (at cost) Travel costs extra. 

LONGER RETREATS FOOD STORYTELLING

For longer retreats (4-7 days), I use the same approach as the Weekend Retreat package and add a deeper layer. Food storytelling-wise, I approach this longer time we have together like a novel, with different food ‘chapters’ supporting the story of the more intensive work you are exploring with your guests, both nutritionally and energetically.

THIS PACKAGE INCLUDES:

TIMELINE: 8 – 10 weeks in advance of retreat

PRICING: Custom quotes available based on number of guests and meals required (add animal protein $5 per person, per day).

Travel costs extra.

"Sonja created a menu that was so spot on with our retreat content it added more than just flavour."

After each session we were met with a meal that refueled us, made us feel supported, warm, loved and seen. It’s hard to understand how much food can change your event until you’ve worked with Sonja.

Sonja’s food cooked ‘Nurture Style’ nurtured our souls and bellies in every way. The only thing I would have changed is making the retreat longer so we could eat more of this food. No joke. Do yourself a favor and book Sonja right now, the investment I made in her was the smartest add on to our retreat this year, we will never do it without her.

"Sonja is a magician in the kitchen!"

The menu she designed for my event was a feast for the senses – the look and feel of every bite were lovingly curated with  her exquisite taste and attention to detail. She is an absolute joy to work with and is clearly passionate about meaningful, beautiful food. I recommend Sonja and Nurture without reservation!

"Ohhhhhh, girl. you slayed. The love and joy in the food was tasted in every bite."

You truly have a gift. I loved every single aspect of the food, thank you, from the bottom of my heart. And I still can’t believe you did gluten free and dairy free for me, and presented it in such a loving way, sharing that it brought you delight to do this. You really are special, gosh!

"This is a gift like no other!"

I have experienced firsthand the talents and magic of Sonja’s food creations for many years. I wanted to treat my husband with something special for his birthday. The whole process was really meaningful. The reflective questions at the beginning actually brought me to tears, steeping even deeper in the love and celebration for the man that I married. She took this and created a bespoke menu that was so incredibly on point, thoughtfully weaving together the poignant pieces of our story with the tastes and flavours that my husband loves in such a unique and inventive way. Sonja did an amazing job of breaking down the step-by-step of preparing for the meal that allowed me to actually enjoy the process and include the eager helping hands of my 2 year old. The meal truly was a family affair, with each person attending creating a part of the menu. It was no small feat but came together beautifully and was a labour of love + night that we will remember for years to come. Not to mention beyond delicious (seriously wow)!!
