Have you considered a career as a food stylist?

Because food styling is an actual specialized career that can take a long time to hone.

It involves artistic skill as much as if not moreso than than just culinary expertise.

Anyone can flip a burger but theses burgers are sprayed, the droplets on the glass are glycerine and the ice is usually rubber. It's a delicate balance of fake and real. And usully the better tasting it looks the less real it actually is.

And if you don't get the shot within 5 minutes (give or take) you dump it and replate.

All foods seen on each production i worked on was made with real food. All foods are prepared either at my home or on set. No tricks.

Brought to my attention. All foods i design and create are real for actors to eat and enjoy. No tricks.no fakery. Honest culinary storytelling .

until I learned that the milk in the typical cereal box cover photo is actually Elmer's Glue. Gross! So I set my sights on astronaut instead.
