Simone Van Der Heide

Since I was a little girl a loved being in the kitchen. I even had my own toy kitchen where I made pasta. I started cooking for my family when I was only 14 and never stopped. I worked in hospitality for a long time. Several years as a kitchen chef. I loved making buffets and decorating meals.
In 2012 I lived a raw vegan lifestyle for some time and started making raw food crackers and other products in my kitchen. This lead to the foundation of Biobites, a production company of raw food crackers and cookies, selling to health food shops in several European countries.
2 years ago I wanted to follow one of my other passions, living a life in Spain. So now I am living my dream in the beautiful surroundings of the Costa Blanca. When I am not working I love to dance, do yoga/meditation, walking and being in nature

Offering breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Available in buffet form or 3/4 course dinners.
