Zovem se Katija Živković, autorica sam fotografija na stranici "Food by Kate". Važna stvar o meni jest ta da volim sve što je povezano s hranom. Moj posao i moji privatni interesi uglavnom su isprepleteni jer profesionalno hranu fotografiram, o hrani pišem, a privatno sam njome opčinjena, intrigira me, i mogu slobodno reči da sam jedna od sretnica koje su svoju največu strast pretvorile u svoj posao.

Najvrijednije kuharske lekcije dale su mi moja mama i none, koje su me naučile osnove, što je uključivalo sve od nabavke, odnosno odabira najbolje namirnice, do spremanja. Naučile su me kako pripremiti jelo koje ne zaguši identitet namirnice koju koristim već ga naglašava, naučile su me kako servirati hranu i podijeliti je sa svojim voljenima, i naposlijetku, naučile su me da sve što imam, primam sa zahvalnošću.

Moja profesionalna opuštenost s hranom i s ljudima koji je stvaraju, dovele su me u kontakt s mnogim velikim kuharima, stilistima, piscima, proizvođačima i "foodie-ima" u Hrvatskoj. Bilo da radim kao fotografkinja, sramežljivo stiliziram, pišem, radim na projektima poput kuharice ili "food" događanja, moj posao je uvijek na ovaj ili onaj način povezan s njom.


My name is Katija Živković, and I'm the “Kate” behind “Food by Kate”. What you should know about me is that I love food and enjoy everything about it. Another important thing is that I am a food photographer and a food writer from Dubrovnik. I am very passionate about of food and if I were to spend my whole life learning about the novelties concerning gastronomy, I probably wouldn't be able to learn all that I find interesting and intriguing.

My mother and my grandmother taught me the most valuable lessons about the basics of food, where it comes from, how to prepare it so that the ingredients keep their identity and value, how to serve it with love and share it with the ones you love. Most importantly, they taught me how to appreciate every single moment of it.

My relaxed approach to food and the people who create it, as well as my curiosity, have introduced me to many skilled and renowned chefs, food stylists, writers, food producers, farmers, fishermen and various food aficionados. 

Whether it’s food photography, styling or writing about food, collaborating on cookbooks or various food events, my work is always closely connected to everything food related.
