In Focus

Katja has been cooking since she was 14 years old. After 2 semesters of philosophy and German studies at the University of Leipzig, she quit her studies to pursue her real passion, cooking, and began training as a cook at the age of 19.

Afterwards, she worked in various restaurants in the Frankfurt and Mannheim area until she moved to San Francisco in 2012. Her time there changed her understanding of cooking, products and everything she had learned so far from the ground up: Farm-to-table, root-to-flower, nose-to-tail, handmade pasta.

Back in Germany, she worked first in Würzburg, then in Hamburg, and at the age of 30 she decided to hang up her cooking apron and leave the restaurant business behind.

But this did not dampen her passion for food and so she started working as a food stylist for essen&trinken magazine. After 2 years she went the way of self-employment as a freelance food stylist. In the first 2 years she worked mainly editorial and has since discovered her passion for advertising.

When she’s not cooking, you can find her traveling, out and about in nature or SUPing.
