Massaman curry is a unique type of curry amongst the various Thai curries because it is more like an Indian curry using mainly dried spices for seasoning. Chicken is the most popular meat in this curry in the West but beef, lamb or even mutton is more common in Thailand. This curry is considered to be rather mild as the heat of the chilies are mellowed with the addition of the dried spices, coconut milk, onions, potatoes and peanuts. This fragrant hearty curry would certainly be welcome winter fare and could be served with a crusty loaf of Sourdough bread or roti and rice.
Thai people usually serve their curries over steamed jasmine rice, but Massaman curry is also a great match for a crusty baguette, sauteed vegetables or a fresh salad and an assertive red wine. With this recipe from with help from an expert curry-maker, I made a delicious, creamy, complex chicken Massaman Curry. And we intend to take pictures and decorations to food and this dish is still a lot of to the world recognition of taste, sight and touch sensations.
This is a chocolate cake, with chocolate filling, chocolate sprinkles and fresh raspberries. It was specially ordered for the 50th birthday of a friend. It is a simple cake, although with a strong punch of chocolate intense sweetness and raspberry fresh bitterness!
Brownies are a universal favourite and with this shot I wanted to try and capture them in all their glory. This is a rich chocolate brownie batter, with swirls of peanut butter worked through the mixture, and topped with slices of Snickers bar. I took the photo for recently launched Instagram baking competition site @baking_your_acquaintance and it is currently used as the gallery's identifying picture. This is a pre-bake shot taken below a large skylight, with sky blue tones reflected in the batter.
These are cheesecake with raspberry topping and lemon pie desert shots that were prepared for a birthday party. I always struggle with photographing dessert shots because it's difficult for me to capture what's inside of the glass shot while keeping everything else in balance, but I think this was a great shot!
Tea Time with Fresh Berry Parfait. Washing vegetables and fruits is one of my favorite parts of cooking. While I do so, I get inspirations of how I would like to present them. This Fresh Berry Parfait has a vanilla cake inside layered with whip cream. I am getting hungry!

First of the many trials of a raw vegan chessecake recipe I've been working on lately. The simple composition is composed of one just ready to go into the freezer, with the leftover berries in a colander balanced on the side of the cake tin. Reminding me of a venn diagram in a funny sort of way!

My colleague, Erica Angelone, and I are running our blog www.krautundrueben.ch since 3 years. We are foodies who create our posts at home, not professional food photographers. We are writing and shooting our blog posts in our homes under real live conditions, surrounded by big hungry dogs and curious little boys...
The post about the tartelettes was based on the intention to create a dessert that is easy to prepare for everyone who loves chocolate or caramel - like we do. And, of course, it should be appealing to baking fans, too. At the end of the day, however, our creations have to be easy recipes for everyone. We are passionate foodies - and we have a passion for nice food photography and simple recipes. We love to cook, to entertain, to taste and we enjoy food, live and the precious moments with friends and family.
Black Pepper Crab in Style. This photo was taken for one of our clients. It's named "Seafood Hotel" reflecting the history of how this restaurant established. In years, they supply fresh seafood to 5-star hotels. Recently they expand their business by opening their own restaurant with the finest seafood which equals to 5-star hotels quality.
As a cinematographer and photographer who shoots for a variety of clients, the inspiration for this shoot was to do something that broke the mould of classic food photography a bit, as that is something that I am predominantly required to capture. Something which explored the theatrical beauty and almost macabre persona of ingredients like octopus when it is isolated. Seeing as though these images were for no client in particular, the aim was to forget the traditional boundaries and just play with our food.
Substantial Living is about the way you eat reflecting how you live. This salad nicoise platter is made with mostly raw veggies and purple potatoes, cured smoked salmon and lemon-chives creme fraiche in addition to my homemade pickled vegetables. Colorful, raw food is filled with wellness nutrients and honors nature in its beauty. Here I connect nature to people through creating a substantial food experience.
Beet Salad/Textures of Hazelnut/ Spring Greens/Orange Thyme Dressing
The idea for this photo was to show the simplicity of a beautiful, delicious salad. Combining bright yellow beets with their graduation of intense color as well as dark purple beets in contrast to the fresh Greens and earthy natural tinted nut textures. Choosing a blue-violet surface as a complementary color to make the main actors of this image pop out even more. This photo was taken with a Canon EOS 750D and natural diffused daylight.
My neighbor and I were sitting at the playground talking about our dinners for the evening. She told me, that she is gonna bake a qwitschi. I ask her how this works, because I thought, that I can bake many things, but I have never heard of an qwitschi. During her declarations I was wondering and ask:"Do you mean a quiche, maybe?" She said:"Oh god, yes". We were laughing so much and I decided to bake my own one. It tasted delicious, so enjoy!
