Hi, I’m Beatrix. I cook and photograph. I grew up in a big family in a small village close to the Bavarian Alps. The village felt small soon. I studied photography at the University of Applied Sciences, Bielefeld and moved from Frankfurt to London to India, where I spent more than 10 years.
My husband is a Bengali food scientist and we have a little son. For some time I ran a travel company specialising in customised trips to India, but got tired of the travel trade by time. So I turned to my love of food and photography.
End of 2019 we moved to Sweden, which still is quite a culture shock (didn’t help that a pandemic struck shortly after we landed here).
I of course have a grandmother, who is responsible for my love of food. She grew up in Czechia and made the best dukatenbuchteln and marillenknödel. I miss her.
For many years I used to be vegetarian and feel most confident in cooking with vegetables, pulses and lots of spices, but won’t say no to a good mutton biryani or goulash. I try my best to take the environment and human rights into account while eating, but I very much dislike any kind of moral finger pointing around food.
