FOOD is CULTURE
Welcome to Vienna! My name is Bianca an Austrian Chef, Food Lover, Globetrotter, Economist and Writer based in Vienna.
I am trained as chef, but also as economist that's why I used to work in banking, climate change and other fields before I published my 2 cook books, traveled again the world and started my own company Bianca is(s)t in 2015. Since then I culinary entertain & host our guests in Vienna together with my team.
Do you want to know the meaning of my company name Bianca is(s)t? Join us in a class and we will let you know! ;-)
Besides my love and dedication for food I enjoy travelling, which, has afforded me the opportunity to gain passionate knowledge of the „International Kitchen“.
Hello, I am Katharina! I originally come from famous Salzburg, but moved to Vienna for my studies.
I grew up in a family with a long history of good cooks, thus I have always felt connected to the world of pleasure & food. Anyhow, I also got attracted by the theory of culture that's why I majored in sociology. This was a great opportunity to gain a deeper insight in how our society works.
After my studies I have started my career as a flexible alrounder in a local vinegar production, followed by several stops in the food industry. Thus, I am not only an enthusiastic host & eater, but also a good cook and local food expert.
Hello, I am Julia! I am a passionate Chef and Host.
Having a rather colorful résumé, my interest in food and cooking is actually the only passion that have stayed with me since early childhood. Actually, my first good memories of my childhood is, me sitting on the kitchen counter and helping my mom baking a cake while spooning flour in a yellow plastic bowl. Most of the time I did it singing and so I told everyone I wanted to become a "Singing Chef" one day.
Then life happened and several years later I studied nutrition, learned a lot about Ayurveda, became a Yoga Teacher and - only a year ago - a mom myself.
Now, it feels like a good combination of everything. Hosting and welcoming you in the kitch*n, sharing culture and food.
Hello, I am Monica!
I love the beautiful, aesthetic & enjoyable aspects of life.
I grew up in the US and have moved to Vienna several decades ago.
With three languages spanning two continents, I am the ideal host for an entertaining Food Safari in Vienna.
When I'm not currently enjoying Vienna with guests, I design and teach in my studio in Vienna's 12th district.
