Greetings and welcome to my blog.
“We eat with our eyes,” says Los Angeles-based Food Stylist and Food Network Challenge Judge, Alice Hart. She is the Paris-trained chef, artist and uber-professional behind Food for Film Stylists®. Her culinary philosophy takes on an extra dimension when cooking for yet a third critical eye—the camera lens. To watch her in action, whipping, dipping, stirring, whirring, folding and molding anything conceivably edible into appetizing visions literally too good to eat, one quickly sees her thirty years of experience and her “Grande Diplomate” credentials from Le Cordon Bleu, Paris at work.
As an illusionist, there is none better. Hart’s techniques in making a product appear hot, cool, wet, moist, crunchy or crispy in front of a still or moving camera are legendary. By creating this instant appetite appeal for a stellar client list including Nestle Foods, Coca Cola, Miller Beer, Starbucks Coffee and Haagen-Dazs, Hart keeps them coming back for more.
As good as her artistry and cooking skills are, Hart’s clients also know she will bring the job in on budget, before the pie is out of the oven. She simply has an eye for it, and a heart.

I will be writing about food styling, restaurant reviews (my favorite food town is Las Vegas), celebrity chefs, cool culinary events, including the TV Food Network Challenge shows that I appear on as a professional judge. I'm also an American Rose Society Horticultural Judge and Consulting Rosarian so gardening will be included.
