Mariola Streim loves vegetables and has specialized in creating vegan recipes. Originally from Poland, Mariola now lives in Frankfurt am Main where she works as a graphic designer and food photographer. Her recipes are varied, wonderful and always vegan with dishes like quinoa burgers and carrot-chicory tart.
With natural light Mariola produces the stunning images that have won her a place in many magazines and her own series of cook books. "Many factors came together to make me a food photographer," she says. Even as a child she was a vegetarian and thought a lot about food.
After studying design she worked for many years as a packaging designer for an international company. She worked with photos purchased from agencies and took part in photo productions. That is where her fascination with photography was born. "I realized I could do this all day," Mariola says.
Today she has achieved her goal and is a food photographer and author of vegan cook books. Her book, "Vegan ist einfach gut!" tells it all. Her blog “Veggieola” is a showcase for her vegan recipes. Whether smoothies, vegan desserts or hearty vegetarian tarts and non-meat burgers, her recipes all have one thing in common: They taste every bit as good as they look!
