How did your passion with cooking start and what kind of foods are you most passionate about?

I started cooking during my gap year in order to (attempt) to eat less instant noodles in my first year of university, and realised I had so much fun in the kitchen! I love baking and experimenting with new recipes; you’ll find me getting my hands dirty kneading dough or watching food videos on YouTube for hours on end!

I love all food — so there’s all sorts of things I make, but in general I try to eat quite healthily! I enjoy finding ways to give my favourite foods healthy twists using more nutritious ingredients. I’m also a big believer in supporting local produce and brands, which I incorporate into my cooks and bakes as much as possible!

Aside from creating recipes, what do you do in your daily life?

I’m currently in my second year of university in UCL! I enjoy being outdoors and love fitness, my favourite would have to be spin (definitely have to exercise to burn of all those calories from trying out new recipes!) I also spend lots of time with my family, friends and my 14-year-old chihuahua, Scruffy!

Personal tips for your recipe viewers when working with Matcha recipes.

Be creative and go all out! Matcha powder is definitely a hidden gem in baking. Not only does it taste delicious but it is also full of all the good stuff — antioxidants, vitamins and minerals! Not to mention, with its vibrant shade of green it makes your cakes and tarts look divine!

What is your inspiration for Houjicha Berry Bowl recipe?

I think Houjicha and Berries go great together and I love how I can eat this as an after-dinner snack too since Houjicha is much lower in caffeine than Matcha!
