Recipe Development + Culinary Event Design

As a culinary producer, food stylist, and recipe developer, I’ve had the incredible opportunity to immerse myself in the captivating world of food fully. Through my engaging blog, I’ve gained recognition from food magazines and digital recipe platforms, who have sought my expertise in crafting recipes and writing articles about food culture. Furthermore, I’ve enjoyed creating recipes along with my food styling and food photography production services for numerous respected food and beverage brands and clients.

My passion for culinary creativity knows no bounds. I eagerly delve into extensive research on diverse culinary cultures, diets, types of food, and meals, enabling me to curate original and mouthwatering recipes that are truly one-of-a-kind. Notably, my Polish blog, JemWiecJestem, has become a trusted go-to resource in Poland for American cuisine and food culture.

In addition to my commercial recipe development endeavors, I’ve been fortunate to design and orchestrate a wide array of culinary events and themed dinner parties that are visually stunning and captivating. This fusion of my roles as a chef and food stylist is particularly gratifying, and I wholeheartedly embrace every opportunity for creative expression through the medium of food.

My versatility in the kitchen is boundless, allowing me to transform vegetables into delightful, kid-friendly creations and introduce guests to extraordinary flavor experiences they’ve never encountered before. I possess extensive knowledge and expertise in accommodating strict dietary restrictions, be it vegan, kosher, Gerson, gluten-free, lactose-free, paleo, or any other special requirement you can imagine. Moreover, I take great joy in imparting my wisdom and teaching others to cook with greater skill, entertain guests with flair, or even prepare an enchanting aphrodisiac dinner to captivate a romantic partner. Whatever your most extravagant culinary dream, I am here to turn it into a tangible reality.
