~ Delicious - Ethical - Special Needs ~
Savour World Cuisine is a catering business specialising in retreat catering. Based in the Byron shire and in business since 2002 we have been freelancing at many retreat centres in the local area and beyond, providing a highly professional and personal service, delivering food cooked with love, joy and care.
As much as possible, we source and use local and organic produce from our farmers markets, delivering fresh wholesome and vibrant food to your table with abundant variety and flavours.
Who we are
Savour Cuisine was created by two lifelong friends Sharmalee and Georgina who were brought together by a common love of foods from around the world, and a love of life based on community, nature and integrity.
We love making great food, we love eating it and we love sharing it!
Every meal is thoughtfully planned, ensuring balanced nutrition and plenty of protein. Food that tastes absolutely delicious using high quality ingredients, and presented beautifully is what we are passionate about.
We also cater for special needs and dietary requirements, making sure every retreat participant is cared for and looked after so they can relax and enjoy the retreat without any food apprehensions.
We are sensitive to, and understand and respect the depth of processing people may go through when in retreat process and we aim to deliver food and a caring, deliberate service that is supportive of this.
“I love Savour World Cuisine. They have been an integral part of my Event team for 8 years. Menus are well designed to suit the occasion and clients. The food is always the freshest quality, abundant, scrumptious and beautifully presented. Sharmalee and Georgina are dedicated and passionate about their product. Their love of food and joy of life is evident, making everyone feel nourished and nurtured. I highly recommend using Savour World Cuisine for you retreat or event.”
Suzie Balmer - Business and Beyond
"Love.... plus perfectly cooked organic food with exquisite subtle tastes.... equals Savour Cuisine. Sharmalee and Georgina certainly are artisans of their craft bringing their individual skill and influence of both Sri Lankan flavour and ayurvedic cooking to their dishes. The fine subtle flavours of their food are conversation stoppers as you simply must be silent and take it all in. We love having Sharmalee and Georgina catering at our retreats as they add so much love both through their food and their presence.”

“When people inquire to book a retreat at Sangsurya as a venue for a retreat, I always confidently recommend that they contact Savour World Cuisine for catering. Sharmalee and Georgina have been providing delightful food here now for many years, and they are passionate and dedicated in continuing to provide a professional service for retreat organisers and participants. I always have positive feedback and grateful thanks for any recommendations for their services. Fortunately I get to eat their fantastic food as well and look forward to the times they are scheduled to move back into the kitchen for another retreat.”
