Myriam Zumbühl graduated from Economy College, then travelled the globe as a trendscout for New York based Ad-Agency Young & Rubicam. During those trips, that lead her from Tel Aviv to Reykjavik, she discovered the many wonderful sides of popculture and trained her reliable sense of what‘s hot and what‘s not.
She started her radio-career at the tender age of 15 at Swiss National Radio SRF3, then worked as a Radio-DJ until she knew all of Madonnas songs by heart. One day she made her dream come true and travelled the world for several years as a travel journalist for Swiss National Radio SRF1. It was also during that time where she was able to combine her never ending inner fire and interest in people, cultures, literature and art in her job as an arts and culture journalist. It didn’t take her long to fall in love with radio drama and documentary, where she learnt the art of storytelling.
Her passion for food lead to a job as food editor where she hosted her own weekly cooking show „Kochen mit Myriam“ on the radio. She then moved on to Swiss National TV SRF where she developed and hosted her own TV-Show „Myriam und die Meisterbäcker“.
Always dreaming of writing cookbooks, she published her first book „Kochen mit Myriam“ in her twenties, that was followed by her latest baking book „Myriams Kuchen Tartes & Co“. Her love for baking made her pack her bags and move to New York City to learn everything about the art of baking bread and creating pastries at the French Culinary Institute.
She now happily works as a freelancer for NZZ, NZZ am Sonntag, Schweizer Familie and many other publications. She finds joy in developing exciting media productions and bringing interesting people and strong stories together. Her latest adventure is the production of a documentary film.
She is based in Zürich, lived, loved and worked in Amsterdam and London and can hail a taxi like a real New Yorker.
