What’s your favourite food indulgence?
Ooh my foodie indulgence, would probably have to be a large jar of crunchy peanut butter & a spoon. Bread just slows me down.

What is the ingredient that you couldn’t live without?
I would say super simple but bananas. Literally so versatile and I can use them in pretty much everything I love to eat.

What’s your favourite place to lol at the weekend?
Probably back home in the Kent countryside with the canine crew.
