Fine dining „Dinner-4-12“

“Antiques & Wine” shop owned by Astrid Zinniel at Castle Halbturn near Vienna (Austria) needed to capture curious visitors more. Many visitors had anxiety of buying admired fine antique objects, as they could not dare or even imagine to use them in every day life.

The project named „Dinner-4-12“ was designed to bridge the dining experience using various antiques items from the shop and show visitors how to use them when plating or serving food.

I have developed and started the project in early 2016 and personally run until end of 2017. The project turned to be successful and in high demand. I passed on the project in 2018 to local chefs to present their own culinary art.

Radio talk: Food Styling

Hands on experience of Food Styling at Radio-FM before talk with moderator Ms. Lucia Cibulová

I was invited by moderator Ms. Lucia Cibulová to talk about Food Styling at RadioFM.

Listen to my live radio talk with Ms. Lucia Cibulová that was on 14.03.2013 RadioFM – Bratislava (SR) (in Slovak language)

Food presentation goes beyond the arrangement of finished ingredients on a plate. It is a very important part of the dining experience, because we eat with our eyes first.

I like to style and present food for what it is and how it can really be cooked and plated. When taking food photos, I refuse to cheat or enhance food by using well known industry tricks and I only do very minimal post processing.

If you are in need of any food styling & photography – simply ask me.

I’d like to say big thanks for continuous support with my photography to

Corporate Events

“Eating together can radically shift people’s perspectives: It reduces people’s perceptions of inequality, and diners tend to view those of different races, genders, and socioeconomic backgrounds as more equal than they would in other social scenarios:” Argues Alice Julier in her book Eating Together.
