Hi, I’m Jessica
Although I’ve never had formal culinary training, I’ve been cooking since I was very young- inspired by watching my grandma and parents in the kitchen (and about 2 million hours of Food Network). I have always had a pet bunny- now I have a baby lionhead named Marshmallow, and I just adore animals (as you might’ve noticed from my food art). When I’m not in the kitchen recipe testing, decorating or eating I love to workout, spend time outside, read and watch movies.
Q&A with Jessica Lucius
How would you describe your creative style?
My creative style is a lot like my own style I think - lots of pinks and golds and pretty touches with playfulness mixed in. Happy, cute and colourful.
What kind of equipment do you use?
My Vitamix is my most used kitchen tool, but I also often use a kitchen aid mixer, silicone moulds, LOTS of piping tips, sprinkles, and a variety of surfaces and plates for styling (my marble pastry slab is my favourite of them all).
Can you tell us why this week’s challenge resonates with you?
My workspace is my favourite room in my home. It’s where I spend my days creating, and my evenings cooking, planning, and hanging out. I just love the energy of being in the kitchen and bringing in the ideas in my head to life.
Can you share a few of your favourite images and tell us why you love them?
There’s just so much happiness here. I love the colors and those clouds are a nod to one of my first ever food creations.
Pusheen is one of my favorite characters to recreate in food form. I just love how cute and playful she is. She always makes me smile
I just adore Winnie the Pooh (and ice cream is my fave dessert). His sweetness and wisdom are constant sources of inspiration for my food art (and he always knows the perfect thing to say no matter the situation).
