Estefano Onatrac Athens – Amsterdam

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.

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.
