Magda is a plant-based food lover who can turn a humble cabbage into magic on your plate. Her passion is cooking from seasonal, local and most sustainable ingredients possible and showcasing the power of vegetables. She loves cooking for sceptical meat lovers apprehensive about plant diets and watching how they slowly turn the corner. One of the biggest misconceptions about veganism is hunger and the need for more protein. Magda shows you how it’s done- you will feel nourished and full, minus the food coma. She loves preparing big feasts full of textures, flavours and colours, as food’s visual and aesthetic aspect is as important. Her heritage and travels inspire her cooking, and she loves incorporating both elements in the kitchen. Magda lived in Hong Kong, where she could experience worldwide cuisines; she travelled through Southeast Asia, took many cooking lessons from the most authentic street food stalls, and grew up in Poland, where she learnt massive respect for seasonal and local produce, pickling, preserving and fermenting. Magda loves using native ingredients and introducing people to new flavour combinations and things they never thought they’d try.
Magda cooked at many retreats and weddings; food and cooking are my love languages, and she takes pride in sharing them with people. Food is more than just putting something on the plate; it influences our feelings. It carries emotions, stories, and memories. Food deserves a special place in our lives.
Magda’s enthusiasm and passion, combined with a chatty nature, is always welcome at the retreats, as guests are welcome to hang out with her in the kitchen, watch her cook and ask any questions.
