There is an organised chaos to this book, which I love. Artists tend to be quite spontaneous individuals and opportunities pre-sented themselves that I needed to embrace, like having two hours to bake a cake and take it across town to Jeff Koons’s studio in New York City, cooking a tart for David Hockney with a hangover from hell or getting stuck in the mud taking a veggie burger to Emily Eavis at the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury. It made every journey an adventure, unpredictable and authentic. Each project put me on the spot. I had to react quickly to openings and invites, thinking of what I could make that would be delicious and appropriate for each creative. I had to think about how I would get the shot I wanted with a ticking clock and without a supporting crew, just me and my camera. In the end I realised that I actually thrive in chaos.
BUY THE BOOK
This book is about sharing the recipes I love to create. Feeding Creativity also debunks the myths that plant-based cooking takes longer, uses more ingredients and is more complicated. You are not missing out on anything by eating this way; you are just enjoying great-tasting food that is more environmentally conscious. The journey this book has taken me on has reminded me time and time again of the value of eating together.
