"In my opinion, there is no more disconnecting than being on a sailboat away from the earth. Ireland has also become a place that I particularly like. Soon as I have a few days off, I m 'escapes.

Do you cook?

Not for me stew Irish sheep, even if I have already prepared one, I did not even have to taste it. I also love to harvest algae on the rocks of the sea, the sun to dry, I use it in salads, or in jars to bring them to New York . I also make my own fermented beverage, a boost guaranteed when I lack energy. And I just put myself in chocolate fondant, I learned the recipe in secret to surprise my boy- friend on his birthday. He was delighted! "

"Whether it is winter or summer, I love soups. We have a garden in Ireland with spinach, leeks, potatoes, peas, and many herbs. I am disappointed we don ' not have fennel this year, but last year, it was superb. My fiance* (!!!) takes care of the garden, and I cuisine. Rather, it is a good compromise, right?

What smells do you travel?
"Hypnose Eau de Parfum following me for so long ... It reminds me a lot of memories.
