Woman of the Orchard

My name is Frauke van den Bogaard. It’s my passion to create beautiful and delicious dishes. Have a look at my food, my creations, my art and feel free to contact me to see how I can contribute

What can I do for you?

I love to cook on retreats and to teach about creative and colourful cooking.  As a chef specialized in alternative cooking  I adapt to any plantbased or vegetarian dietary wishes. Based in the Netherlands I love to travel to both Dutch- and foreign retreat centers and venues.

What others said...

Magic that caresses senses
Lees verder
Last month Frauke cooked fantastic food at a week-long retreat I organized in Spain. The communication beforehand went smoothly and fluently, as did the creation of a delicious menu. Frauke takes initiative, is clear about what she needs and flexible. During the retreat, I received positive comments from all participants after each meal. They are not only inspired by workshops, but also by the delicious dishes lovingly made by Frauke. In the kitchen there was a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. She had an overview and creates magic from her heart that caresses your senses. I look forward to inviting Frauke again in the future as a fantastic cook during my retreats (Florine Gabriel about Immersion of Expansion, Catalunya, Spain)

The food was delicious. Both breakfast, lunch and dinner were well catered and clearly made with love. The presence of Frauke was warm, friendly and very pleasant. (Participant of The Art of Being You Blissful New Year's Retreat )
A bed for the soul

Your being, the nourishment, beauty and quality of the food were a ‘bed for the soul’. Food like this is not gone when eaten but remains a special memory that can be re-tasted again and again. (Carina Eckes, teacher at Pachamama retreatcentre, Leeuwarden)
What a pleasure

What a pleasure to have Frauke in the kitchen and see her at work. Where she creates the freshest, colorful and tastiest sensational dishes with her fresh, earthy and cheerful energy. Her passion for cooking is tangable and visible as she swayingly dances, with her hair up, transforming her vegetables into rustic dishes or subtle spreads. Looking for a flying chef? Look no further. You found her. (Vincent, Kundalini Massage Course, The place to Be, Zelhem)
