Homemade pasta, Italian classics, and more. I'm a landscape architect, but now my job is to cook and take food photos for magazines and companies . I'm vegan because I love animals and I want to do the best I possibly can for the environment. My goal is to help everyone get closer to having a vegan kitchen because it's necessary to protect our planet and resources and it is important to consume consciously. My vegan meals are healthy and ethical, but I also have a sweet tooth. To be convinced of how good they are, just try!
