About

PLANT-BASED COOKING TEACHER, FOODIE EVENT & EXPERIENCE ORGANISER, FOOD WRITER

This is me! Hello! I’m Yohanna and I have been in love with food for such a long time. My food adventures have found me managing a restaurant in the jungle in Costa Rica, and running a cafe in Sweden. Now living in South Devon I teach vegan cooking and organise food adventures and experiences. I write for the food and tourism industry and am currently studying for a diploma in food journalism. I’ve been vegetarian since 1991 and vegan since 2003 so certainly know a thing or two about how to enjoy gorgeous and satisfying plant-based food! While my cooking is generally based on healthy, wholefoods I’m not at all adverse to indulging in extravagant treats and can be found cradling an ice-cold Martini and a plate of naughty nibbles as often as I sip on green smoothies and tucks into a wholesome Buddha Bowl!

I have previously devoured a Diploma in Vegetarian Nutrition to learn more about how food can work for us and I have been writing recipes for over ten years, many of which have been shared with the world in print and on screen.  I have worked as a healthy eating coach and vegan/raw food teacher to  help people prepare the food their bodies need. Food, I can fairly say, plays a pretty important role in my life!

And adventures, how I love an adventure! One of the nicest ways to spend a day, I think, is on a surf board, a bicycle or on foot enjoying the fresh air, challenging the body. Breathless, frustrated, accomplished. In awe of the nature around and warm and happy from the company of good friends. Refuelling the body around a delicious meal, swapping experiences of the day. Tired and hungry…but oh so happy!

Food and Adventure! Adventures with Food.
