Reka’s Recipe for Award Success

Reka’s Recipe for Award Success

Food blogger wins prize

When food fan Reka Csulak decided to combine her hobbies of cooking and baking with photography she proved they were the perfect ingredients for award success.

The food blogger inspires others to make their “dishes come true” with regular recipe posts and photography tips online, illustrated with mouth-watering photos of her delicious dishes, which saw her achieve finalist status in a prestigious food photographer of the year competition. Rejoicing Reka, who is a multiskilled operator at temperature controlled packaging specialists Peli BioThermal in Leighton Buzzard, was delighted to discover her accolade after beating thousands of entries.

Reka said: “After turning my passion into a profession as a freelance photographer, food stylist and creative educator, one of my biggest achievements was to get my work noticed by the famous judges of the most prestigious competition in the food photography industry: Pink Lady Food Photographer of The Year 2020 Awards. “I was delighted when I received the news that my photo has been shortlisted among the best food photographs from all over the world. I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would be a finalist in the Food Blogger category and the image of my vintage Hungarian Wedding Peach Cakes would be honoured with the Highly Commended title.

“It was a great competition, and even if I did not win this year, being among the top seven from nearly 9000 entries from over 70 countries is the feedback that definitely makes me feel I am on the right path.” Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, instead of the usual gala event in Mall Galleries London, the finalists and winners were announced at an online awards gala which was streamed live. There is a virtual exhibition where food fans can “walk-around” and see the best food images of the year.
