spotlight magazine Dec 2021 travel & documentary photography
Estefano likes to give a look behind the scenes with his travel stories, he likes to show where the products come from. The name of his project is: “People behind Food”, as an indication that it is about the people behind the products that we buy every day.
The episode “People of the Salt fields", was for a supermarket chain, the reason was to give more attention to their in-house magazine, and promote the different kinds of “Fleur de Sel” in their stores.
In-house magazines are very popular, as airlines use them to promote countrries with stunning pictures, as well as create customer loyalty. Although airlines focus on destinations, hotels with a cosy atmosphere, you’ll end up at the end of the day with delicious food and drinks in fine restaurants. All influenced by images, as you eat with your eyes (first).

According to Estefano, the roles of a photographer and a chef should merge. Just a good culinary photo or just a good dish is not enough. These factors must come together to make the most of the culinary experience.
After 25 years of experience in hospitality and gastronomy, photographer Estefano Onactrac thought it was time to further develop his passions. He figured out a way to combine travel and culinary photography. Estefano went travelling and discovered the latest culinary trends. This was eventually the basis for his cookbooks. With these cookbooks, he inspires other people with all his culinary tips and experience.
Food is a connecting factor and brings forth both love and comfort. It is not for nothing that cookbooks go with you throughout your life, are treasured and then passed on from generation to generation.
"Making your own cookbook is therefore not only incredibly fun, but also the most rewarding book to give out."
