My name is Patricia Kettenhofen, I am a photographer and for many years I have been working exclusively in the culinary world by capturing images that I wish authentic for many customers; I’m also a recipe writer and culinary stylist ... but for my images... Everything inspires me in my profession: the markets, the interior of my neighbour’s fridge, high school canteens, an apple vendor, a crate of carrots, the hands of a gardener, the speech of a farmer or a grandmother who makes her garden, the great chefs of course, books, foreign recipes; my box and I work for you with great humility, it is important in this profession.
