How it all began…

A few years ago, I found myself too busy for breakfast at work, so I decided to change that. Experimenting with ingredients, I fell in love with food and began sharing my creations on Facebook. This led to starting my Instagram account in 2016. My recipes gained traction within a year, appearing in Vogue and The Times. I even appeared in the Netflix cooking competition “Crazy Delicious,” winning a Golden Apple. Through my work, I had the opportunity to meet the Royal Family and cook with King Charles III. I’ve also collaborated with hundreds of brands like Disney, Google, BBC, Pinterest, and Fox Productions. I create fun, unique, and creative content, have created my own tea set with Royal Albert, and focus on DIY projects for sustainability.
