“A food stylist’s job is to get food ready to have its picture taken,” says award-winning food stylist Delores Custer, who will be in Seattle next month exclusively for a one-of-a-kind workshop. She’ll be in town to teach the first Foodportunity Expression: Styling workshop in the kitchen of the world’s number one (and fastest-growing) food site, Allrecipes.com.
The event, presented by Keren Brown Media and sponsored by New York Style® is limited to 40 participants and will take place on February 20th, 2010, from 10 AM to 5 PM , at the headquarters of Allrecipes.com, 3317 Third Avenue South, Suite D Seattle, WA 98134.
Custer will demonstrate food-styling techniques as well as discuss prop selection, styling tips and how to look at food from its best angle. She will delegate group assignments such as styling salads and other food items, so participants have an opportunity to practice what they learn. Custer’s focus for the workshop will be on styling techniques accessible to home cooks, bloggers and others interested in styling food and keeping it edible.
New York Style® will provide the delicious, edible props for use in the styling exercises, and will award prizes to the best photos taken at the event. New York Style®, which makes the nations #1 selling Bagel Crisp, has recently launched a new gluten-free Risotto Chips™.
Workshop participants will be able to upload their photos from the event to a Flickr account created especially for Foodportunity Expression.
