Remember when you were a kid and adults would say “don’t play with your food!” Who would ever have imagined that a whole genre of the social media universe is centered around a concept that we were told was wrong!
OK, obviously food styling is a little different than just pushing unwanted peas and carrots around on your plate. But what about taking those peas and carrots and creating a smiley face? Or making a face out of chocolate chips and whipped cream on your pancakes? Or creating a heart with pepperonis on your pizza? That, my friend, is food design and exploration aka food styling.
Heading into the kitchen can sometimes with daunting when you want to host or bring something to a party. I am here to let you know that you don’t always have to cook something from scratch to wow your guests. I am not an amazing cook. Because of that, food styling has become my best friend as I am sure it will become yours too!
Don’t doubt yourself. You are more than capable. Take it from a chronic over-thinker and self-doubter – with a little patience and a pinch of creativity, anyone can become a food stylist.
A Little Bit More About Me
I am a Long Island wife and mom of two. I am a coffee addict, sun worshipper, self proclaimed runner and if I could bring the 90s back, I would in a heartbeat.
After being a stay at home mom for 10 years, I was able to turn a hobby and therapeutic outlet into thriving business and brand. I never thought in a million years I would be here in this space amongst the creatives that have inspired me for years, let alone be an entrepreneur and author.
I would like to pay a special thank you to YOU – those who follow my posts, share my content and support me daily. Your support has boosted me out of my comfort zoned made me realize that I am more capable that ever thought. You are the ones that inspire me!
