Bettina Campolucci Bordi was born in Denmark but brought up in Tanzania to a Norwegian father and Danish-Bulgarian mother. After working in the food industry for 10 years, Bettina found her love in mindful retreats and the healing power of food. Bettina always utilities local and seasonal produce regardless if she is cooking in London for her friends and family or abroad at one of her retreats. Bettina lives by the motto that: we should all eat seasonally, locally and from farm to table as much as we can; we should support small businesses within our communities and those around us; we should use roots, shoots and all. Cooking waste-free is particularly important to her, and she lets the vegetables do the talking – the best plant food is fuss-free, simple, easy, inexpensive and speaks for itself. Her love for this led to her founding her wildly successful blog, Bettina’s Kitchen, and writing her first and second books, Happy Food and The 7 Day Vegan Challenge.
