I’m a messy chef. My kitchen looks like a bombsite pretty much every time I cook or bake and I have learned a while ago to wear clothes that I’m not too bothered about. But to me, that’s exactly what it’s all about. I love experimenting and being creative and I’m not fussy about following recipes too strictly; I find it far too tedious to be honest. Don’t get me wrong – if I was paid a dollar every time I scrolled through one of my favorite recipe blogs then I wouldn’t have to worry so much about whether I can afford the $2,000 Thermomix or not. The reason I still read recipes is because it inspires me, and it gives me new ideas to try something different next time, however I don’t follow them meticulously because I’m a firm believer that you yourself are your own best chef.
