“We Eat with Our Eyes”
…says multi-award winning Los Angeles Food Stylist and TV Food Network Challenge Judge, Alice M. Hart.
Industry's highest honors awarded from IACP: The International Association of Culinary Professionals
Award of Excellence: Best Food Stylist of the Year
The Julia Child Legacy Award
She is the Paris-trained chef, artist and culinary professional owner behind Food For Film® and 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, mouthwatering visions literally too good to eat, one quickly sees her decades of experience and “Grande Diplome” 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. Alice and her supreme team of talented assistants cater to the Client, Photographer, Branding, Marketing, and Director's every whim striving for the ultimate satisfaction in creating instant appetite appeal.
Trend setting artistry, bubbly passionate personality, stellar culinary expertise exude both behind and in front of the camera. Hart’s clients know she will bring the job in on time and on budget before the pie is out of the oven.
Alice simply has an eye and a heart for it.
