and want more people to have fun with it
Close your eyes for a second and think about which fruit our logo represents. Do it now. Got it? Aha, well we assume you just got it right, it is an apple. To be exact: a bitten apple; a playful yet complex and unpolished apple.
Apples appear in many traditions as a mystical or forbidden fruit and as a symbol for knowledge, immortality, temptation and even sin. We like to think of it as the fruit that is charming, inviting, fascinating, tempting and...irresistible.
Bite Me invites you on a journey full of irresistible surprises which, ultimately, make you bite the apple. We're about playfully tempting you to interact with and experience fantastic food & crafts and share in our love for it and it's makers. Because that's what a sustainable world is based on.
a food experience agency
Bite Me works with, for, as and around food as a whole experience. We have put together a crew of awesome people with a love for food and each their own unique talents: designers, anthropologists, hosts, photographers, performers, bartenders or drink-masters and of course quite a few chefs. Different members of our crew will work together for your experience but of course someone has to stay cool in the heated moments and show up for office hours. That's this team:
Anastasia grew up in a number of Greek restaurants in Germany owned by her family. Later she studied economics and entrepreneurship in Vienna and Amsterdam before co-founding Bite Me in 2012. Today she is in charge of sweet-talking you with creative and cool ideas!
When Anastasia doesn't run around talking and developing concepts with our clients and partners, she is also a coach and plays the occasional ukulele.
Jonas used to study anthropology focused on post-war areas until he realized that most conversations were about coffee and food. So instead he co-founded Bite Me in 2012 in Amsterdam and later pursued a master in anthropology & food. Today he provides us with knowledge and insights into the world of food and that stuff...
When Jonas isn't discussing the meaning of food, you can find him teaching and developing new projects at the University of Copenhagen.
Matilde believes in food’s ability to change relations and recalls her past in the shape of good (or bad) food. She has written and been part of theater plays before joining the crew at Bite Me. Here she is our list- and coordination-master making sure that everything is ordered, ready and set for your or our events.
When Matilde isn’t coordinating food events, she is digging into the world of performance design and help organize cultural events.
Karina considers food to be art and believes it always deserves to be shown from it’s best side. We can find no objections to add to that! Originally from Poland, Karina has a background as an artist and a huge interest in the ritual ways of food. At Bite Me she is in charge of designing, capturing and communicating the visuals of our world.
When Karina isn’t making food look like art, she is out there taking, well, beautiful photos of other things.
memorable experiences start with great food & fun interactions in good company
This is our starting point for everything we do. No matter if you are searching for a one time event to best allow people to experience and remember your beautiful work or for a longer collaboration to develop something new with us. We have developed a process to make sure we always have the ingredients for memorable experiences. It draws on methodologies like Design Thinking and Service Design but also on perspectives on experiences from the world of anthropology and performances, so we have chosen to call it Food Experience Design. In short it works with every aspect of how we can better experience better things.
1. the idea
Together with you, we discuss and choose the right concept and content for the experience based on the desired feel and outcome.
2. test it
We develop and test food made by talented chefs in our crew and research both your setting and your (potential) audience beforehand.
3. design it
We incorporate the food in a guided experience from invitation over presentations of food and drinks to sharing the memories afterwards.
4. host it
We don't deliver-and-run, so our crew helps to guide the experiences and interactions with you and your audience both at events & in projects.
let’s take good food seriously
Bite Me was originally created in a world of social and green entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurs, who wanted to have a positive impact. Yet food was a side note in their daily businesses and coming from a world where food is at the center of life, we simply couldn’t understand such a priority. We started of by simply offering these trendsetting entrepreneurs some better choices but soon realized that the problem is not a lack of choice. It’s a lack of communicating, designing and implementing the experience of good food, so we can actually love and share it.
At Bite Me we want more people to happily eat and live better and more sustainably. We believe the only way to achieve this is by revolutionizing how we eat and experience good stuff… and we hope you want to join us!
