Senior is an artist who quite often uses food as her medium.
I ended up in the kitchen because creating is what I do best, and it doesn't matter if the medium is food, art, architecture, it's the creative process I love, plus you get to eat it when you're done.
My favorite dish to make is certainly toffee, but I also love the spring and all the fresh vegetables, roasting them and then creating simple dishes with the roasted vegetables like a quick pasta or showcasing them in a tart.

I always brush my teeth after popcorn.
