Me at Munich's Oktoberfest

Hi! I’m Ingrid who loves to prepare, eat, and talk about food (especially anything sweet), in no particular order and ideally all at the same time. I also appreciate spending time outdoors exploring what Mother Natures’ pantry has on offer which has inspired me to finally start sharing all the little gems I enjoy so much on Sweet & Wild.

As a Croatian foodie (from Zadar), with a German passport (born in Munich), who’s now based in England (Bristol), there’s plenty to talk about and hopefully you too will start following the seasons and bring the outdoors into your kitchen.



PS: Regarding my picture, I’m not really a beer lover but a real “Münchner Kindl” (born in Munich) who loves going to the Munich Oktoberfest every year!

Photography Kit


Earlier this year, I finally got my very own digital SLR camera, the gorgeous Canon EOS 550D. I’m still experimenting and learning a lot hence why I only post every other week.


The majority pictures for this blog were taken with my Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II and Sigma 50mm F2.8 EX DG Macro lenses.

Camera Bags

I like carrying my Camera with me most of the time but struggled to find some nice girly bags in the UK which don’t scream “Camera bag”. I got across this beautiful red patented one by ACME,  ideal for special occasions like weddings and nights out but it is too small if you need to carry more kit with you. During my last visit in New York, I bought this handy padded insert which fits perfectly into several of my favourite handbags, making sure my camera and lenses are protected while the bag still matches my outfit. If the bag is too heavy, I just attach a shoulder pad and I’m ready to go.

Don’t worry if you’re not going to New York any time soon, the B&H Photography store ships worldwide but if you are there, make sure you check out the store, it literally is Santa’s Grotto for all photography fans.
