Thomas Sixt… Chef and Food Photographer

Personal ideas 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 wandering years led me into the German and international star gastronomy, stations were well-known restaurants like the Tantris in Munich (Hans Haas, 2 stars) and the residence Heinz Winkler (2-3 stars) in Aschau im Chiemgau.

I am not only familiar with cooking in gastronomy, as a cooking trainer I have cooked with more than 10,000 customers in cooking courses 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 get as many people as possible enthusiastic about good cuisine.

It’s exciting to look into the pots of celebrities and lesser known cooking colleagues. Paul Bocuse, Eckart Witzigmann, Jamie Oliver, Tim Mälzer, Roland Trettl, Hans Haas, Heinz Winkler and Alfons Schuhbeck are sometimes mentioned.

Let’s cook together! On my page you will find a large collection of recipes with photos and step-by-step instructions.

Virtual Chef Cooking School

Cooking together is fun! You’ll find many ideas for your kitchen here in the cookery blog.

Cook down-to-earth dishes for every day or dare to try the dishes of the big kitchen. In any case you will find what you are looking for…

In general, I always try to make it as easy as possible for you to prepare even the most elaborate dishes. Should a cooking question remain unanswered, please write me a comment.

My photo recipes are extensively written and designed. I explain cooking terms to you directly and without detours. I have really put myself into it 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 instructions for cooking at home.

Digital cooking instructions are super practical! Many photos show you how to select and prepare food. You can watch the most important tricks in cooking videos and cook perfectly for your loved ones at home.

Perfect dinner, huh?

Why don’t you ask the professional chef? Because if your Mercedes is broken, you do not go to the hobby screwdriver … 🙂

For your perfect dinner menu you can have a look around here and discover the suitable dishes.

In contrast to hobby cooking bloggers, I learned the craft of cooking from scratch. That’s why I have a wealth of experience through my previous activities, which I would like to share with you.

Paellapfanne direkt vom Ofen auf den Tisch

Paella with seafood, a great dish for a perfect dinner with friends. You can discover the original from Spain with step by step instructions here.

Kochvideos Headcam Kochen

Here you can find cooking videos of my self-produced cooking show Head-Cam-Cooking, Staffel I,II und III, which was broadcasted over 3 years on Vienna’s city television. Produced 2010-2013.

Watch me cooking over my shoulder… Headcam Cooking: I wear a camera on my head, these are videos shot from the chef’s point of view.

So far there are 190 episodes of Headcam Cooking. Currently I am concentrating on food photography and writing here in the Kochblog.

Ideas for new cooking formats I have many… TV stations as well as food producers are welcome to contact me for an exchange or for a new production. Recipe sponsoring and paid blog posts are possible, contact me.

What moves me so…

I love the traditional country cuisine. Nationally and internationally I always look for pearls. It’s not just about gourmet or star cuisine, but about authentic, good cooking, eating and drinking.

Sometimes I prefer an old cast iron pan to a modern stainless steel pot, I only use the microwave to heat up the plate, I only use pressure cookers if there is no other way …

I have been photographing my own food for 20 years. After the meal the plate is finally empty. Therefore it makes sense to take a photo 🙂

In the beginning I just wanted to add photos to my internal cookbook, after all customers and publishers became aware of my work through presentations and I was able to sell the first pictures commercially.

My kitchen and food photography has evolved over the years. Today I can smile a bit about some food pictures or dishes… and get wiser and wiser 😉

Kalbsschnitzel in der Pfanne mit Kräuter und Knoblauch.

Cast pan is sometimes better than stainless steel pan. Here is an early work from the year 2004, which always tastes good.

Culinary Art

The art of cooking begins with me in the kitchen and sometimes it creates a picture on the wall. My thanks go to the interior designers and furnishing specialists who are friends with me, who love and appreciate my paintings and integrate them into the design of modern living spaces.

I have been working for Food-Art since 2005 and today I am delighted to have clients from all over the world.

Please let me know if you would like to redesign your kitchen or a dining area. I will bring your favourite dish to the wall as a unique item.

My vision of cooking and enjoying…

We live in a time of chicken nuggets culture. The founder of Mc Donalds, Ray Kroc, left us his questionable culinary heritage.

Almost everywhere in the world, restaurateurs serve the pressed meat nuggets. I have seen ski instructors protest in the kitchen, demanding nuggets again for the children from the ski course, because the children refused freshly cooked food, healthy vegetable ice cream and salad, even freshly breaded chicken.

Making fried chicken instead of chicken nuggets, in the article you will find all the tips from the professional kitchen.

I like real, handcrafted cooking. I like to look over the shoulder of Nepalese women preparing momos. I prefer to eat boquerones fritos instead of molecular cuisine.

Momo Zubereitung, Teigtaschen in Nepal

Nepalese women preparing the traditional Momos. The dumplings with a meat filling of goat and chicken meat are particularly popular in Nepal, Tibet and in northeastern India.

If I can, I prefer to cook myself or together with and for people.

Through appealing and exciting cooking stories I would like to encourage you to cook yourself.
Instead of a ready-made pizza, I prefer a homemade pizza, kitchen instead of couch potato, great food cooking instead of cooking with a chip bag.

Kleine Kuchen mit Obst

Small cakes from the French bakery. Tart with apricots, caramelized strawberries, lemon tart and cherry tart. Baking it yourself is fun!
