⠀
You !⠀
⠀
What my food styling workshop is all about ...⠀
.⠀
Well friends,⠀
It’s about YOU!⠀
.⠀
Seriously,⠀
It’s about giving you all the info, resources, tools and support I can to make your journey quicker, easier and a whole lot of fun !⠀
.⠀
Why?⠀
.⠀
Because it wasn’t always this way for me. When I first started food styling there was no manual, no guide and certainly no course available.⠀
I figured it out. Alone.⠀
It wasn’t easy.⠀
It wasn’t  quick.⠀
And it wasn’t always s whole lot of fun.⠀
It was hard.⠀
And I don’t want that for YOU !⠀
.⠀
If you’re still wondering whether to commit I’ve written a blog post for you ( link in bio ) ⠀
Or feel free to email me - I’m here to help, anyway I can.

Friends it’s been crazy my side.⠀
And it looks set to continue that way for the next couple of weeks.⠀
I’m not complaining, but I am really behind in my own stuff, I have blog posts to write and shoots I want to do, which unfortunately I’m not going to get to, especially as it’s so hot all the pretty blossoms are already gone.⠀
Ah well .. next year.⠀
.⠀
I’m off to write my to do list for tomorrow ⠀
Good night friends ⠀

I’ve spent the whole day writing, and rewriting some of the modules for my professional food styling course.⠀
I have so much info to share I feel like my brain is going to explode !⠀
💣⠀
It’s so important for me to share this info, to make the information available to those wanting to learn.⠀
I never had these resources when I started, it was purely trial and error, persistence and  tenacity.⠀
And it wasn’t easy ⠀
I want to lower the learning curve for you friend, so you can have all the fun, without the blood sweat and tears ⠀
I hope you’ll join me on the course ⠀
I’m doing this for you !⠀

Instead it’s what I had for breakfast ⠀
Delicious homemade baked beans on sourdough with avo and egg ⠀
It was darn delish , even if I do say so myself ⠀
.⠀
Happy Friday friends ⠀
Have a drink for me ⠀

This was my checklist this morning -⠀
Pack oven⠀
Pack trays ⠀
Pack oven stand ⠀
Pack deep fat fryer ⠀
Pack gas table top⠀
Pack gas bottles ⠀
Etc⠀
Etc⠀
Etc⠀
There is SO much more that goes into a mouth watering billboard image than just the food and whether or not it is sprayed with glycerin or photoshopped to look perfect ⠀
.⠀
There is organization, with a capital O⠀
Dedication⠀
Commitment⠀
Skill⠀
Relentless pursuit of excellence⠀
.⠀
Nobody tells you about all this!⠀
.⠀
Except me.⠀
Why?⠀
.⠀
Because I want you to have what I never had.⠀
I want to give you information, resources and all the knowledge and experience I’ve gained over the past 18 years.⠀
I share it all with you in my upcoming foodstyling workshop.⠀
.⠀
So if you are wondering if it’s for you, check out my blog post where I give more info.⠀
.⠀
Ok I’m off to triple check my checklist ⠀
Xxx ⠀

Friends I really want to ask your thoughts on something, and I would really, really appreciate feedback on. ⠀
If you don’t want to put yourself out there in the comments please DM me. ⠀
.⠀
I wondering what your thoughts are on the crediting of images. ⠀
In particular the crediting of the food stylist by a photographer for an image.⠀
.⠀
I notice that food stylists always credit the photographers, BUT,⠀
I’ve noticed not all photographers ( actually quite a few) do not credit the stylists.⠀
.⠀
Why?⠀
.⠀
And, is a tag good enough?⠀
Personally, no, I don’t think just tagging the person is okay, it doesn’t mean that I did the work, it could mean anything.⠀
.⠀
Also, the excuse, the stylist is not on IG ( or whichever social media platform is being used )⠀
I don’t think that’s valid either. ⠀
.⠀
So this is a challenge for me, it is something that irks me, and I’m wondering if I’m alone is this annoyance, particularly for food stylists, or if it’s my own issue I need to deal with.⠀
.⠀
I’d love to chat about this, please drop me a comment below, or as I said a dm. ⠀
Thank you !⠀

“... except Rhubarb!”⠀
.⠀
When we were newly married my husband, who comes from a very different background to me, always insisted he ate anything.⠀⠀
.⠀
I was keen to show off all my culinary skills, cooking up a feast every night.⠀
No matter what I made he insisted, “ I eat anything”⠀
Until the night I served poached rhubarb with homemade custard for dessert.⠀
😳⠀
“What is this ?” he asked taking a big gulp of water⠀
“Rhubarb” I say smiling confidently⠀
“ did you forget to add the sugar “ he asked reaching for the canister next to the kettle, “ no, it’s supposed to be a bit tart, I did add sugar “⠀
“ you mean it’s SUPPOSED to taste like this?” He asked, completely thrown, “ and this is not a tart “ not understanding the alternative meaning of the word.
. ⠀
Needless to say it quickly became our joke ..⠀
“I eat anything, EXCEPT rhubarb “⠀
.⠀
I love rhubarb, poached over oats for brekkie or stewed with custard for dessert ⠀
.⠀
Are you a rhubarb lover or are you with hubby on this ? ⠀

I’m awake pre-dawn because it rained in the night -yay! And the thunder and lightening woke me-also yay!
So, let’s play a game guys,
It’s Friday funday after all!
.
Ok so far I have,
Ben Shewry ( obs) Donna Hay ( I can see the exclusive headline “ What Donna does next”) and Martha Stewart.
Who would you invite to a dinner, if you could invite anyone in the world ?

Phew ! What a day...⠀
I tackled a few admin duties early this morning which gave me motivation for the rest of my tasks,⠀
But then after struggling for the remainder of the day with my newsletter my momentum stalled.⠀
🙄⠀
Apparently it was a beautiful Spring day, I didn’t look up from my computer until it was over.⠀
So tomorrow I’m going to make more effort to get outside and enjoy the Spring sunshine, but for now I’m getting comfy in front of the TV for some US open tennis.⠀
