Since that time she has constantly been researching vegetarian food and cooking, and on how food is interlaced with our culture. The Chef, artist, food activist, and curator Tainá Guedes, has been working on different projects bringing food, art, and sustainability together with a variety of media, in Germany as well as internationally since 2009. Her first book against food waste, Cooking with Bread (second edition by Oekom Verlag) was published in 2013, her second book "The Kitchen of Mindfulness" (Kunstmann Verlag) in 2016.
