THOMAS SIXT CHEF AND FOOD PHOTOGRAPHER
Personal introductions are always sooo difficult…. Nevertheless a few words about me….
I learned the craft of cooking more than 20 years ago with Alfons Schuhbeck (1 star and 19 points in Gault e Millau).
My years of travel led me to the German and international star gastronomy, stations were well-known restaurants such as the Tantris in Munich (Hans Haas, 2 stars) and the Residenz Heinz Winkler (2-3 stars) in Aschau in Chiemgau.
Not only do I know how to cook in the restaurant industry, as a cooking trainer I have cooked with more than 10,000 clients in cooking classes and cooking events in the past.
So far, I have been able to publish four cookbooks with well-known publishers, and I have also produced my own apps and iBooks.
Today, I prefer to write online to inspire as many people as possible about good cooking.
Let’s cook together! You will find on my site a large collection of recipes with photos and step by step instructions.
ONLINE COOKING SCHOOL
Cooking together is fun! You will find many ideas for your kitchen here on the cooking blog.
Cook down-to-earth dishes for every day or venture into the dishes of the big kitchen. In any case, you will find what you are looking for…
In general, I always try to teach you even complex preparations as simple as possible. Should a cooking question remain open, so please write me a comment.
My photo recipes are extensively written and designed. I explain cooking terms directly and without detours. I have really put in the work for you: The creation of an article takes about 10-12 hours, sometimes even longer.
Online cookbooks are very popular, after all, cooking stories, kitchen stories and photo recipes are the ideal guide for cooking at home.
Digital cooking instructions are super practical! Many photos clearly show you the selection and preparation of the dishes. You can learn the most important tricks in cooking videos and cook perfectly for your loved ones at home.
PERFECT DINNER WANTED?
Ask rather the cook professional! Because if your Mercedes is broken, you do not go to the hobby mechanic … 🙂
For your Perfect Dinner Menu, feel free to browse around and discover the dishes that suit you.
Unlike hobby cookery bloggers, I have learned the cooking trade from scratch. That’s why I have a wealth of experience through my previous activities, which I am happy to share with you.
COOKINGVIDEOS HEADCAM COOKING
You will find here, among other things, cooking videos of my self-produced cooking show Head-Cam-Cooking, season I,II and III, which was broadcast over 3 years on Austrian television. Produced 2010-2013.
Look over my shoulder while I cook…. in Headcam Cooking I wear a camera on my head, it’s videos, shot from the cook’s point of view.
There are 190 episodes so far Headcam Cooking I’m currently focusing on food photography and writing here on the cooking blog.
WHAT MOVES ME SO…
I love the traditional country cuisine. Nationally and internationally I am always looking for the pearls. It’s not just about gourmet or star cuisine but about authentic, good cooking, eating and drinking.
An old cast iron pan is sometimes preferable to me than a modern stainless steel pot, I use the microwave only to heat plates, pressure cookers I use only when there is no other way …
I have been photographing my food myself for 20 years. After all, the plate is empty after the meal. Therefore it makes sense to take a photo 🙂 .
Initially I just wanted to add photos to my internal cookbook, eventually clients and publishers became aware of my work through presentations and I was able to sell the first images commercially.
My cooking and food photography has continued to evolve over the years. About many a food picture or dish I can smile a bit today… and become wiser 😉
COOKING AND PHOTO ART
The art of cooking begins with me in the kitchen and sometimes a picture makes it to the wall. My thanks here to the interior designers and interior specialists friends who love and appreciate my pictures and incorporate them into the design of modern living spaces.
The subject of food art has occupied me since 2005, today I am happy to receive clients from all over the world.
Please let me know if you are remodeling your kitchen or want to redesign a dining area. I’ll bring your favorite dish to the wall as a unique piece. You can reach me here.
