Hello Cooks!

My name is Leslie Crabtree. I’ve spent fifteen years cooking for large, multi-day events at retreat centers in Oregon and California.

One Taste is the cookbook that I created from that experience. It contains all of the menus, recipes, and prep lists for 10 days of international menus with vegetarian and gluten-free options.

Meal Plans and Prep Lists

Stay organized in-between and after meals with instructions that begin the day before, and end with you using all the leftovers.

Pro-tips for when things go wrong

You never know when you'll forget to soak the beans or thaw the meat—the 'Yikes!' chapter of One Taste will have you covered when disaster strikes.

One Taste
