That’s why I started making videos — because I wanted to give my fans and followers a little bit more of myself. As a chef, I’m focusing on people’s health, making sure things are perfect, and managing a staff, but people don’t get to see that I’m enjoying myself behind the scenes. I turned to social media, so I could give everyone a peek at what I’m doing. I just turned on the camera. I didn’t think about it, I didn’t rehearse — I just started cooking. Every time I filmed a new video, I got increasingly more comfortable. People told me I was relatable, and I’m happy they picked up on my vibe. I love that I get to connect with people all across the globe (Australia, Germany, Nigeria, Barbados), who tell me they’ve tried my recipe. I’m like, “Girl, you’re all the way in Barbados and you’re cooking my food?” It’s really cool knowing that even if I’m not in Barbados, my recipes are, so my essence is there, too.
