I've recently completed my undergrad degree, and I'm taking some time off before returning to grad school. I've done lots of cooking since graduating, and I continue to collect more recipes than I could ever possibly make. I'm a vegetarian, and I try to make environmentally sustainable and socially conscious food choices, using local, organic, and fair trade products whenever possible. I believe that any food experience should be enjoyed holistically, with appreciation for the flavour, texture, smell, and appearance of a dish, and consideration for where the ingredients have come from and the processes they've undergone before arriving in my kitchen. I discovered earlier this year that I have Celiac Disease and a dairy intolerance, so I'm learning new ways to cook and eat in a world full of wheat and dairy. A sad goodbye to sandwiches, pizza, beer, and cinnamon buns.
