I was born on a tiny spanish island in the Atlantic Ocean where the experience of living on limited land surrounded by the sea helped me develop a considerable thirst to find out more about other unchartered territories.

What happens when you close your eyes and think about a certain kind of dish or recipe? What kind of images, emotions, memories, stereotypes, reflections and associated thoughts come to mind? 

 

Exploring | Sketching | That recipe on my Mind.

Eatnologist is a food art travel blog. 

 

Eatnologist is about curiosity, it’s about exploring, learning to take a closer look, sketching and making notes to help visually interpret food-based experiences, so I hope this site will inspire you. 

Besides being a set of instructions describing how to put together a culinary creation, a recipe can mirror many aspects of culture, identity and how a whole society or single person relates to its environment.  In a world that seems to be evermore explored and mapped, what remains hidden and undiscovered?

Hi, I´m Fred, a mix of austrian and spanish. At Eatnologist I explore, sketch and also relive culinary experiences by travelling back inside my mind and putting them down on canvas.

I love old cook books, usually they have no pictures of the dishes, so I love to imagine them.

I was born on a tiny spanish island in the Atlantic Ocean where the experience of living on limited land surrounded by the sea helped me develop a considerable thirst to find out more about other unchartered territories. I live in Vienna, birthplace of so many renowed psychoanalists. Just by writing these lines I realize that, to a certain extent, everything seems to make sense to me... somehow.
