Often you will find me sitting in a cafe sipping coffee, twiddling a pen between my fingers and engrossed in a notebook or laptop. I like riding my bicycle around the city, chatting over a bottle of wine in a park or by the water, finding exciting ingredients in markets, turning them into delicious meals and learning to look at things differently.
Small talk doesn't come naturally to me. I mean, I pride myself on being sensitive and kind and caring about how your day was, but I can't hide the fact that I really just want to get stuck into a tightly fought debate. I know how to behave, but very often end up being intentionally inappropriate in order to put people at ease and satisfy my frankly juvenile sense of humour.
