What do you draw inspiration from? It is really difficult to categorize all of my sources of inspiration into one answer, but most of all I am inspired by the people and things that are simple and that can show with honesty what they are passionate about. Art and passion—which for food bloggers are found in the kitchen, is that space in which we can be faulty, wrong and unafraid. It is the place in which we can be ourselves, and in which we can be fully human. There is hardly anything more inspiring than inspired people.
That aside, one of my biggest sources of inspiration are old cookbooks. I love to get lost in antiques markets and dig for tattered, worn cookbooks, as they are so simple, so down to earth and so true to themselves. Every maker—whether they are cooking, painting, developing a product, or whatever must first and foremost be true to their own character and soul. One can only accomplish true beauty and real inspiration with the exertion of pure honesty. Those who fail to stick to this behavior are bound to eventually quit what they are doing: one cannot be in love and dishonest at the same time.
