Cal Reiet is more than a hotel. It’s more than a holistic retreat escape. It’s a family. And everyone involved in this beautiful project is unique. We believe in the power of people, in the power of doing good things for others and in the power of healing as a group, because empathy is what’s most important to build up. So now we have decided to introduce the Cal Reiet team members individually for you to get to know them better, to understand their background and to discover why they are working with us at Cal Reiet. Here goes the fifth ‘meet the team’ article!
Rosa Asturias is a plant-based chef & healthy food coach who was born in Barcelona and moved to Mallorca at 17 years old, falling in love with the island. After successfully opening and running two restaurants in Palma, she grew an interest in nutrition and its healing power and started her training in these areas (Masters in Vegan and Vegetarian cuisine). She recently obtained the qualification of Expert in Natural and Holistic Nutrition, in the Holistic Institute of Vital Hygiene, in Madrid.
Once understanding and realizing the importance of food and its direct connection to health, this yoga-lover couldn’t get enough of all the new and exciting knowledge and couldn’t wait to put it to good use. Her winter stays in Asia leave an important trace in most of her dishes, where it is easy to find spices, fresh herbs, seeds, seaweeds and all kinds of fruits, veggies or pulses, in an original mix of tastes and flavours.
Rosa’s cuisine is mainly plant-based, intuitive, a little bit transgressive and very creative. Paying particular attention to cooking procedures and showing deep respect for original ingredients, she firmly believes that what we eat will also nourish our soul. This is why it’s worth to cook putting all our love in it.
In 2017, she starts her professional collaboration with Cal Reiet, where she has been able to elaborate gluten free, sugar free and her own vegan recipes daily for breakfast and where she has also been sharing her knowledge with guests and readers by publishing monthly recipes on Cal Reiet’s blog.
