  2. I am a NYC based food stylist specializing in
    live television food segments. ( The Rosie O’Donnell Show, Tony Danza, The View, Today Show, Good Morning America, Isaac,The Fox Morning show with Mike and Juliet and many more)
    food is my passion and so is my work- sometimes it almost seems indecent to get paid for something I love doing so much- but then I love not only creating gorgeous and delicious food – I also love to travel and explore new frontiers of culture and food to be inspired and challenged.
    I love to eat in fabulous restaurants and little dives-wherever good food might be calling me, I love foie gras, truffles and Dom Perignon. so – you can see I do need to charge after all.
    I grew up in Vienna, Austria- that’s of course where my love for food started. I am now dividing my time between Vienna and Manhattan – to me the two best places in the world.

I have held amost ever job imginable at a restuaruant from chef, to mangager, waitress, and have even done the flower arrangements. I have an artistic eye and am in love with food.

  10. Susan Bosman is a food and wine stylists based in Cape town , South Africa, who started her career as a food assistant for a magazine in 2004. While assisting she discovered her real love: food and wine!
    Susan’s love for food started in the home economics class when she was in high school. It was only when her art teacher and mentor suggested that she should consider a career in cheffing, that she started to explore the world of food and wine! She soon discovered that she can make a living out of preparing and making food look pretty!
    In 2002 she enrolled at the Institute of Culinary arts in Stellenbosch. Here she completed the Diploma in Culinary Arts, Professional Cheffing and Baking. Not only did she mastered the theory of food and wine, but did she worked in various establishments to implement what she have learned in the industry of “real” kitchens.
    At the end of 2005 Susan decided to take a giant leap that would lead her closer to living out her passion and dream: she exchanged a steady income as a food assistant, for the love of food and wine. She started her freelance career as a food and wine stylist
    Susan is well-established in editorial, advertising and publishing industries.

    Susan’s Philosophy:
    I believe that when you prepare food either for styling or the consumption of it, that it should not only look good (luscious) but taste out of this world. Always use the freshest ingredients that you can get, support the locals, and most important of all never make food either for a photo-shoot or entertaining without love! With my styling and consulting work I hope and believe in educate those who are just as passionate and willing to learn more about food as I am.

I was a student at the Culinary Institute of America and have nineteen years experience in food retail,(Specializing in Meat).
