"I have been cooking for some of the best chefs Toronto has to offer and honing my culinary skills for the last 12 years. After 5 years of being vegan and living a whole foods plant based lifestyle I have come to understand the value of simple ingredients and simple techniques. I aim to make veganism more approachable and accessible for everyone, and that is what I try to convey in the food I make."
