What gets you up in the morning? Do you have a morning routine? If you do, what is it?

I don’t have a set morning routine for myself but most of my mornings consists of getting out of bed and taking my dog for his morning walk (he demands a walk first thing!).  So fresh air and a good walk gets me up and about. I then brew myself a big cup of; yep you guessed it, chai! Then it’s time to slowly get into some work.

What excites you most about what you do?

My work overall excites me! Continuing to work on my skills with recipe development to produce an abundance of healthy and delicious sweet treats and savoury dishes.

Your biggest fear and how do you overcome it?

Honestly, it would be losing a loved one, which overrides any other fear! You can’t really overcome that but not taking your time for granted with your family and friends. Spend good quality time with the people you love.  

What is the question that you wish others ask more and why?

What makes you happy? Instead of “when are you going to get a career, a house and kids”, I want to know how people are really feeling and if they’re truly ok in their everyday life.

What’s your favourite way to drink or use Chai?

My favourite way to enjoy chai is the way it should be enjoyed, brewed in a cup of milk (I choose dairy free) and served warm. I also love adding chai to flavour many of my sweet recipes including chocolate chai truffles, chai cupcakes, chai poached pears and even chai milkshakes!
