Food styling is such a fun part of what the Lifestylist Brands is all about. Each shoot seems to take on a life of it's own, and no matter how well you plan you never know what you are going to end up with.

I am so proud to be a member of Les Dames d'Escoffier, and take this honor very seriously. The organization raises funds to provide scholarships for women who want to start a culinary career and ever dollar we can make through our fundraising efforts goes to this very worthwhile cause.

Our main fundraising event is Raiser Grazer on April 3rd. Photographer Lisa Stewart and I decided to go to some of the participating dames and chefs to do professional photography of some of the items that will be served that evening. It's been lots of fun and I think it gives people a better idea of what to expect.

Chef Provost and Parigi have a signature color - pink - so we were thrilled with the styling props she had available to us.  Table of diners around us were able to get a first hand look at how much work can go into a simple shot - these frites were arranged and rearranged to get the perfect shot!
