I love cooking because it's an art form for me. It's something that is productive and relaxing at the same time. Cooking makes people happy & it gives me something that I am proud of. I love the beauty of cooking, the art that comes out of it. I'm not really artistic in other ways and cooking & baking give me my own ways of expressing art, even if it isn't conventional. I love being vegan because it makes me feel good. I feel empowered, like I'm making (given a very small) difference in the world. Even if the animal products that I refrain from eating don't change the food industry, when people find out I'm vegan they are inherently curious. They ask why, and are genuinely intrigued. I don't try to preach vegan-ism but spreading awareness about the food industry is vital to our survival. I love making people think about things they don't usually think about, and maybe making a tiny difference in the world. Being vegan also forces me to eat really cool foods, and things I never would have tried before. My palette has definitely widened since becoming vegan. *Sophie is always in the kitchen chopping, cooking, and baking up her fabulous chocolate vegan treats. Her favorite vegan chefs are Oh She Glows cookbook author Angela Liddon, (http://ohsheglows.com/), and Isa Does It cookbook author Isa Chandra Moskowitz from Post Punk Kitchen (http://www.theppk.com/books/isa-does-it/).
