Their recipes

We wanted a cook­book where the recipes wouldn’t scare your granny, but the would also im­press a young per­son, that would make you get ex­cited about things again. – Mur­ray


I hate that word and so does ev­ery­one who is an in­flu­encer. – Ka­vanagh

Per­form­ing for so­cial me­dia

“There’s a rea­son peo­ple watch some­one like James and not some­one like me. There are some things James has done, and I’d be like, oh, it’s all over, it’s all done now, but ac­tu­ally it has turned out to be the best thing ever. – Mur­ray

Cam­paign­ing for autism aware­ness

“I did a video with my nephew Sean, about his ex­pe­ri­ences with autism and it went vi­ral, it was on the main Amer­i­can news shows, and in Aus­tralia too. I put it on Face­book and I think there were 20 mil­lions views at one point.
