How do you stay elegant while peeling carrots?

For me, elegance isn't necessarily what you're wearing. It's a way to stand and be! It is not because you are in a pretty dress that you are elegant...You can be elegant when you wear jeans and a T-shirt, it's in the way you behave, in your gestures that are part of who you are. I don't know if I'm always elegant while peeling my carrots, but my years of ballet must definitely be part of it. To be elegant is to take care of yourself and love what you do. In my kitchen, I don't have a lot of food processor, but the utensils I use, I choose them for their practicality but also aesthetics, I find them beautiful… and I have fun using them and that immediately makes the gestures more graceful.
