Hello and welcome! I'm Claire – an experienced Johannesburg-based food stylist, recipe developer, qualified professional chef and lover of all things delicious and beautiful.
My experience working in the commercial food styling business has taught me that incredible visuals matching a brand's identity are not simply a nice-to-have, but are an investment, helping to elevate a brand, drive sales and attract clients.
My journey as a professional food stylist has been made up of a mix of professional cookery in fine-dining restaurant kitchens, writing and magazine food editing, but, above all, a love of design and beautiful things. Over the years I've refined this blend of experience and passion into a business which serves clients through premium food styling and recipe development.
You'll find me exploring new and old restaurants in Joburg, planning food-centred travels, walking in nature or enjoying the peace of our city apartment.
