I’m 24 and live in so-called Brisbane, Australia. I work part time, both within and without of politics, advocating for social change and environmental justice. I spend a good portion of the rest of my life cooking, thinking about food, and eating with friends and family. I’ve been cooking food for friends and family since I was about ten years old. This hobby arose from seemingly nowhere, and i’m a mostly self-taught cook. Over the past decade, the act of cooking for others has become my language of love, and has been a source of connection with people all around the world. I believe that food and community are inherently connected, and that social dinners around a big, shared table, are both the best platform to discuss the state of the world, and the best place to escape it.
