Dedicated, professional and so attentive to every detail. This is my Catarina, who has accompanied me for a few months with great patience and affection. I don't know if the affection I have for her is for the passionate way she exercises her profession, if it is for the person herself. I couldn't have "gotten" a better nutritionist. Thank you to Mercado do Campo for giving me the advice! She is really top!
You really have to try one of ZenCook’s workshops. Everything is amazing: besides learning a lot, you get to know lots of secrets and tips. Catarina is so sweet, kind and always willing to teach so many things about the ingredients: which ones are the best, where to buy them… Everything you need to know, mainly when you are a beginner - just like me. Thank you, Catarina, you know so much and, yet you remain humble.

I was Catarina’s assistant on one of the workshops imparted by her and I simply loved the experience! She cooked incredible delicious dishes! I remember it as a great, relaxed day, and I can’t forget the fine healthy food. Really healthy! I’m going to do it again – hopefully!
Delicious food and extremely various too. Catarina takes vegan meals to the next level. If people could try it all biases about vegan be boring and not tasty will fall apart. And being Italian and not vegan I'm quite demanding :-)
This lady cooks with so much love and passion... and inspires to try different things at home. The food is delicious. Her smile melts your heart. When I wasn't feeling well I sat outside the kitchendoor and her kind words and listening to her cooking and singing comforted me. She's a true Zencook... and in my heart.
I had the privilege of being at a private event where Catarina was the chef. The genuineness, joy, dedication and sensitivity with which she received us was showed in what came next: The most pleasurable and abundant meal in which the refinement, the variety, the combination of flavors elevated me to the ecstasy of feeling nourished in a careful and healthy way. I loved it.
Catarina's cooking was one of the best things about my retreat! It really made the experience so special. I have never eaten such delicious, nourishing meals. Thank you Catarina ❤
I enjoyed getting to know Catarina and savoring her delicious and amazing meals at a recent Ibiza retreat. She put so much care and love and thought into the food, and she’s very creative! We all wanted to hire her as our personal chef! If you’re holding a retreat and you want a chef who is good-natured, dedicated, and talented, reach out to Catarina!
I went on a retreat in Ibiza last week and was lucky to enjoy the food prepared by Catarina. You can see the love she puts in preparing the food. Everyday a different meal with different kind of flavors and all were super delicious. Besides her skills to be an amazing chef she is also a very nice and friendly person which made the experience of a healthy yoga retreat complete.
Catarina is amazing! I had the pleasure of having her as the chef at our retreat and it was such a treat! Her food is tasty, nutritious, a joy for the eye and comes with a big variety! She has a big heart and love for food and people and that is reflected in the delicious meals! Thank you so much! ❤
Catarina was our superstar chef on our recent retreat in Ibiza, and we want her to work on all of our future retreats now! She was an absolute angel (a very hard-working one at that), cooking three delicious meals everyday for 19 people, while shining full of light, love, and relaxation (zen would be an accurate description). She was so easy to work with, flexible, diligent, and sweet. I recommend her highly to anyone who cares about having high-vibe food prepared in a high-vibe way. ❤
Wow... simply Wow. Not only is the food amazing, but the heart of the owner is felt in all of her yummy creations. Highly Recommend. If I could, I would out bid anyone to make her my private chef.
Wow... not only a delightful person but a wizard in the kitchen. I was recently at a retreat in Ibiza and we were so privileged to have Katerina preparing our meals. We were a group of 19 and the food was absolutely delicious, satisfying, varied and clearly made with love. Thank you so much! Xx
Catarina was nurturing not only our body but also our soul during a Yoga Retreat in Ibiza last October. She cooks like and angel and she is also a lovely person. Looking forward to have the chance to meet you again and eat some of your delicious food creations. All the best Catarina!!
Fantastic food and energy!

When i signed up for the retreat where Ana Catarina cooked for us I never could have expected that the food would play such a huge role in the success (and my enjoyment) of the retreat. What she is able to do in the kitchen is pure magic to me! What lovely flavours, vibrant colours, delicious smells. So many glutenfree, vegan, healthy dishes! And ofcourse Ana Catarina herself is just a wonderful person. So sweet, kind and smart! I wish her all the best with ZenCook and in life, and hope to see her again one day.
Yesterday I had the chance of participating in the amazing workshop given by Catarina. I simply LOVED it! I learned a lot, I got to know new foods I had never heard about, I took part in the preparation of several dishes. Everyone was sharing their own experiences, there was a very positive atmosphere. Dinner was DELICIOUS, with lots of different dishes. Dessert? It was simply divine! An experience I’d like to go through again, no doubt. I am sure Catarina has a brilliant future ahead her: she’s a very sweet young woman with loads of creativity. A great nutrition expert! THANK YOU, Catarina!
Having Catarina as chef at my retreat here in Ibiza was the perfect addition and made the experience whole for everyone who joined. Intentional nourishment for body through her food, nourishment for the soul and mind with our workshops and yoga lessons was the perfect mix. I highly recommend booking her for your retreat. ❤
Zencook was the chef at the yoga retreat I joined on Ibiza. My diet is very specific (glutenfree and vegan) but she made delicious and surprising dishes everyday! Loved her food and personality. A very friendly chef who knows what she's doing. Although the retreat wasn't totally vegan and glutenfree she knew how to make some dishes special and dietproof. Especially loved the ricedishes and her absolutely stunning desserts (apple cinnamoncake) I felt nourished and healthy after every meal . Thank you Catarina.
I had the chance to have her as our chef in a retreat in Ibiza. The other participants said she is very good, but they were wrong... She is absolutely MAGICAL (literally)! In fact, not only Caterina is a great person, friendly and surprising, but she also accomplished a miracle: in spite of the fact that I strongly hate green peas since I was 6 (last time they forced me to eat them I puked), she has been able to cook them in such a way that I found them delicious! (and I couldn't believe it!). It definitely is the result of the passion and love she put in what she does. I recommend her without any reserve. Her cooking is mesmerizing and She is more than fantastic! Absolutely great! Choose her for any event and don't look back!
Some projects seem truly natural when we get to know who’s behind them: people whose energy, commitment and dedication are as nutritious as the healthy ingredients they use in their alchemy. The work and activities performed and developed by Zencook are characterised by their high quality and importance. They inspired us to be better and to change the world the way we’d like it to be. Its mentor is like a bright candle in the dark night skies of our lives and she opens our minds to experience food as a celebration of life and joy. We become, therefore, more creative and conscious. The dishes she prepares are an explosion of colours, textures and flavours, which merge in a nutritional and perfectly artistic way to offer you healthy, delicious meals. To say ‘recommendable’ is an understatement. It should be mandatory as it has the power to transform everyone’s life.
Excelent excelent excelent! Wow, three times ‘wow’! Catarina is amazing… She knows a lot about food and nutrition and she gives awesome tips about food and how to cook it. She taught us several very good and easy to prepare options for breakfast and snacks. Not to mention how tasty it all was… so delicious! Thanks!!!!
You’ll find ZenCook has a soul, a heart and passion, and all three are present in the way food is prepared and served. It’s worth tasting it… time and time again.
I followed a vegetarian cuisine course taught by Catarina. What can I say? A lovely morning, an amazing lunch and I’ve also learned a lot of new, handy things and tips. I totally recommend her courses.
Discovering ZenCook is like having a veil lifted in front of you. Chef Catarina's recipes and expertise manifest flavor, bliss and happiness, showing that we can and should do so much more with gastronomy to become and stay healthy. Definitely worth finding out.
Amazing, cleansing, colourful, tasty and a joy to eat food from the heart. My first ever experience of eating clean and it’s so liberating to know that my body is happy, my mind is calm and I return home with a new way to nourish myself. Thank you <3

It’s never too late in life to learn new things and I’m really happy for accepting this challenge: it was deliciously unforgettable! Congratulations! And I have to thank Catarina for sharing her knowledge and creativity with a sense of professionalism, love, dedication and kindness. Everything was so very delicious! I wish her all the best and lots of success!
Ana Catherina is an amazing chef! I had the opportunity to meet her and enjoy her fabulous and healthy food during yoga retreat at Ibiza. Her food made the week complete, made me feel very good and enjoying every single bite. She combines the best fresh herbs and veggies and her love into the best meals!
Catarina's food is sooo delicious I just couldn't stop eating. Plus, everything is superhealthy and I could feel my body saying THANK YOU. Having her around was also a pleasure. She has such beautiful presence that she infuses into her cooking. You can feel everything has been cooked with love and serenity. She was a key ingredient in the retreat's success.

We just concluded a retreat in Ibiza and had the privilege of having Ana Catarina Sequeira as our chef. I am absolutely amazed by her cooking and the heart she puts in her work. It was very easy to organise everything with her. She was very adaptable and flexible, on time, focused, dedicated, relaxed, happy and shining. A perfect combination of everything needed to make all our guests very happy and satisfied. Thank you Catarina for your beautiful artwork in the kitchen and our hearts!
Catarina is a very special chef. Her food is prepared with love and she gives her own twist on all the dishes. To organize a retreat yoga with Ana Catarina Sequeira as chef is something that any other organizer want. A chef that is professional and nice, modest but still very we'll together and you can depend on her. She brings along a great atmosphere were everybody benefits of. Also with challenges she is really a professional. I loved working with here and I will continue to work with her not only for her amazing food but especially for her karakter and heart. Lot's of love and hope to see you soon Christina of Bodysattva Yoga retreats.
The food was so good. I was at a loss for words. It was great to be somewhere where I could eat everything. I don’t come across that often because I am a vegetarian and I eat gluten free. Catarina, thank you so much for this experience.
We had a beautiful retreat on Ibiza with Catarina as our chef. Catarina cooked perfect meals with great variety which tasted wonderful. All days we looked forward to here meals which she cooks with great love and absolute devotion. Besides her great cooking, Catarina is also a very beautiful person. Modest, warm and a great personality. Catarina, thank you very much that you would be our chef and for giving me the opportunity getting to know you.
I went to a retreat with Catarina in Portugal. She cooked excellent food all week. So much love in her cooking as well as nutrition. Everyday was a surprise when it came to food. I was so well presented and full of variation and colors. I can highly recommend Catarina to cook for you at you retreat or any event. Thank you Catarina for a delicious part in my mouth.
Not only was the food delicious and beautifully presented. Catarina's joyous, bright presence was a gift to the whole retreat. Catarina - Thank you with all my heart...I know it's not an easy job! Everything was amazing!
Incredible delicious healthy food prepared with love, what a present! No more words needed!!
I can tell, her food is delicious. So lucky to be spoiled with the most spectacular meals. Spectacular like little taste twists that make every dish a tasteful surprise....
I met Catarina at a retreat in Ibiza and she is a very strikingly nice person. She has a wonderful kind of charisma. And then I tried her delicious food what she made for the retreat! I highly recommend her for a retreat in each way! If you love vegan/vegetarian food - here you go! Catarina 5 * ❤
Catarina is such an amazing chef and lovely person to have around. While being the karma yogi on a retreat in Ibiza, I had the pleasure to get to know Catarina and enjoy her great food. Healthy, surprising and oh so tasty! We all wanted to take her home and hire her as a private chef. She combines knowledge with creativity and that makes her authentic.
I have just had the immense pleasure of being fed by the delicious Zen Cook for more than a week. Awesome! The food is inspired and beautifully presented. Simply Divine! You have re-inspired me with my own cooking. Thank you!
I loved the Zencook dinner menu all made by Catarina! A light and tasty vegetarian. I really liked the pesto, the hummus and the eggplant version. The idea of adding chestnuts to the salad was very good! And the avocado and cocoa cheesecake is delicious! I recommend all Catarina's recipes and Zencook's service! And I'm not a vegetarian and I loved it!
