Wild & Root is born out of a desire to inspire, involve and create together.
We are a bunch of creative minds including designers, chefs, photographers, architects, biologists, nutritionists, journalists & illustrators.
Together we are an innovative, creative force – co-creation at its best!
My name is Linda. With a Master degree in design and ten years of experiences in gastronomy and agriculture, I co-founded Wild&Root in 2014 with the intention of bringing culinary stories and education to life. Food goes far beyond our own plate.
I am Madhvi, a creative storyteller who has experience working with publications such as the BBC, New York Times and Penguin Random House as well as brands such as AllBirds and Google. I love devising original concepts, engaging workshops and meaningful experiences. My aim is to connect people to their creativity, to each other, and the world around them.
My name is Franziska. Strategist in the head, writer in the heart. Either way, always a story hunter on the look out for campfire sites. Today I live in Berlin-Mitte, a country girl for whom village life quickly felt too small. When I’m not advising food retailers or start-ups, I work on fictional material. Immune to persuasion, prone to enthusiasm. For me, the rule is: if in doubt, for the idea.
I am Sun Mee, a Creative Consultant and Culinary Experience Designer. With an international work experience in the innovation, design and event industry, I engage in diverse cross-cultural projects at the intersection of food, sustainability, and social ties. I am passionate about exploring what connects humans at a deeper level and how we can improve our social and environmental wellbeing. With curiosity and openness at the core of my activities, I believe in the power of shared experiences.
My name is Lucia, I am an Italian architect, illustrator and food designer currently living in Zurich. I grew up in the restaurant of my family, watching my grandparents busy preparing succulent food and where it’s always the right moment to sit around a rich table to tell stories. I like this idea of food as a medium, as a mediator and I have always used it in this way, as an architect, as an illustrator and as a food designer as well.
I am Carina, a visual storyteller celebrating life through my lens, passionately co-creating with other visionaries and life-lovers. It is my joy to experience tastes and aromas, to hear the stories behind people, dishes, places and products. I take it all in to then bring it again into the form and color of my photos, so the others can experience it too.
I am Lisa – chef and graphic designer living in Berlin. Diverse flavors and rhythms as well as the beautiful art of communication inspire every day anew. I believe that if we understand that eating is so much more than just filling our stomachs, we can (re)connect to ourselves and allow food to be both our medicine and our pleasure.
I am Ana, a documentary photographer from Portugal living in Berlin – and always happy to travel around! Photography is my favourite creative tool and way of expression. With it, I produce candid images to tell meaningful stories of purpose-driven people and projects.
I am also a lover of nature and art, thus valuing and prioritizing co-creation with environmental and cultural organizations, artists and educational projects.
I am Carolina, a Berlin-based chef and a former architect. I was born in a half Italian, half Lebanese family in São Paulo – Brazil, so food has always been a special subject for me. In 2019 I founded The Onion Project, a supper club around topics like family recipes, cultural heritage and the connection to people through food. Being in a foreign country made me value even more the emotional sense of food and community. My work includes cooking for catering events and as a personal chef.
My name is Yoni. I’ve been developing visual content for the past 9 years, with a focus on food and sustainability. I’m aiming to educate about “good food”, introducing the people behind beautiful products, and portray visions of a better food system. My education from The University of Gastronomic Sciences made me understand food in a holistic approach, by analyzing all the different aspects of our food system trying to understand how to truly change the system as a whole.
I am Thore, a Sustainable Chef offering creative, plant based Cooking Experiences. I want to inspire people to break new grounds and connect them not only with each other through our senses, but also with nature and our resources – for a healthier and more sustainable life. We cook and eat plant based cuisine and I love to create beautiful delicious dishes from rescued produce. Let’s save the world deliciously!
I’m Lena. I’m all about social media and creating memories together as a team. I’ll show you what we are cooking up behind the scenes at Wild & Root. In 2018, I founded Café Zimtschnecke in Calw-Holzbronn. A meeting place for coffee lovers and exchange.
