One for the ladies! I have permission to say this as James has a longterm parter and beautiful son plus as everyone knows I’m a married woman with two beautiful daughters!
The exceptionally talented James is from Auckland New Zealand. He is head chef of Crave Cafe (a very busy but cool cafe and bistro – full of his female fans – you can imagine how stressful this mans life is lol!)
With a commitment to using fresh seasonal ingredients he cooks with a lot of herbs and anything plant-based. He also enjoys the challenge of cooking for people with dietary requirements eg Vegan, GF, DF, and vegetarian. Keep an eye on this man!
Bircher is a soaked oat muesli that is super healthy and simple to prepare at home (night before).
