Food Stylist

I work as a freelance food stylist, a consultant on recipe and product advancement and workshop developer for companies. I formulate new uses for known ingredients and creative twists to traditional recipes. My inspiration is collected from my experiences traveling the world.


As a travel and food writer I take pleasure in gathering inspiration from some of the world’s best restaurants, bars and cafes. Finding joy in giving tips for cookware and commodity shopping, I provide content for several newspapers and magazines. I am the author of the cookbooks Chop Chop, Kitchen Time, Hunting for the Good Taste, Coasters Food Workshop and Others

Cook and catering

My catering options provide food for hundreds of happy people year round. I cater events, receptions, birthdays, weddings and for companies. In the summer season, the Spisevognen is on the road for events, festivals and concerts.
