About Me

Photo by Jennifer Simonson


I am Juliana, a passionate photographer who grew up on two continents and now lives in Switzerland. Being the child of parents who are avid travelers and food-lovers, I inherited these traits. This blog is filled with the places I travel to and the recipes I create.

My recipes are inspired by my childhood in California and Bavaria (southern Germany), my life with my husband in Switzerland and the foods from my travels. I make a point of eating organic and regionally grown food whenever possible.

Together with Alexandra Medwedeff, my first cookbook "Jahreszeitenküche frisch vom Markt" was published in March 2011 and won the Gourmand World Cookbook Award 2012 for "Best First Book" in Austria. My second cookbook "Grüner Kochen!" was released in February 2013 and won a Gourmand World Cookbook Award 2014 in Germany.

I enjoy comments and feedback so please don't hesitate to contact me (either in English or German) at foodandtravel.jn[at]gmail[dot]com
