"These two heart-centered heroes are sure to nourish. Get some if you can."

                                                                               - Damian Chaparro, co-founder Aro-Hā

Former Chef and Retreat Leader at the multi award-winning Wellness Retreat Aro-Hā in New Zealand, Marleen Kemper and Ben Dessard have returned to Europe as The Love Cuisine.

Together, they express their deep passion to create a simple and nurturing space for everyone to come together, as they are, and feel the loving connection that embraces us all.

The couple provides cooking and nutrition services for retreats and teacher trainings, with the intention to support a nourishing and healing environment for these experiences to unfold.

The food Marleen and Ben are preparing with mindful hands combines nature’s freshest and most generous ingredients with a creative and health-focused approach.



Let's co-create!


Our vision is one of a loving and creative network that seeks to spread health, joy and wisdom on our planet.

In new partnerships, we are looking to nourish meaningful relationships, support each other's efforts, and make a positive impact on the lives we encounter.

Whether you run retreats or lead teacher trainings, we'd love to hear about your project and discuss a potential collaboration.

Blessings & Love,

- Marleen & Ben -
