    What are some of your passions?

    Photography, videography and travel.

    So Candibod, what has been your most memorable food experience?

    My best experience thus far has got to travelling around India for a month solo, immersing myself in a new culture of cuisines.

    What is your go-to dinner to make when you’re short on time?

    Takeouts! Only kidding, I would say a curry – easy to pop everything in a pan and let it cook.
    Otherwise, a good old fashion burger always hits the spot too.

    If you had to leave for a deserted Island for 6 months, what 5 food items would you pack and what would your last meal be?

    Oats, Rice, Canned Beans, Water and sour patch kids haha.
    Last meal? Hmmm, a tray of croissants of course!

    Who are your favourite chefs?

    Sophia Roe, Braam Beyers + Massimo Bottura

    What are your favourite cookbooks?

    Molly Baz’s Cookbook + Ottolenghi, Flavor
