Behind The Global Cookbook is me, Bastian. 

I love travelling, discovering new people and cultures and can never resist when tempting scents leave the pots, pans or woks of this world.

It is unique moments and encounters that I seek for in my films, portraits and stories. Fascinating people who don’t just cook but with their story make the preparation of a dish an unforgettable experience.

With a sensual fusion of biographies, cuisine and film, I want to entertain, arouse your curiosity and, of course, tempt you to cook authentic recipes from all parts of the world.

In my episodes you will find stories of people that will stay in your memory, dishes that will make your mouth water, and inspirations from the kitchens of this world.

Support the Global Cookbook

If you like my films and stories, feel free to support me and my work. Everything is 100% handmade, just like the dishes in my documentaries. There is no production company behind the Global Cookbook, as I always want to tell independent and authentic people stories. Thank you for being part of the Global Cookbook! Bastian.
