In short, I am a culinary enthusiast. I'm a food + prop stylist, recipe and content creator, and a cake and pastry artist.
I grew up in the Philippines 'til I was 18 , and in 2008 moved to Toronto, Canada. In 2011, I graduated from George Brown Chef School, Culinary Management Program, in the hopes of becoming a chef, and worked in a number of restaurants and even catered for the Toronto Film Festival.
In 2013, I found myself a new passion - Food Styling. I was hired at a creative and communications agency which gave me the opportunity to sharpen my skills and knowledge in the food & beverage marketing industry as a Food/Prop Stylist and Recipe Developer. Here, I got to work with tier1 brands from across North America. I have also worked with chefs, cookbook authors, dietitians, and on television sets including Food Network's Fire Masters, and other shows like The Great Canadian Baking Show and Master Chef Canada, and a few others.
Nowadays, I do freelance food styling, recipe development and content creation with an emphasis on easy everyday recipes and desserts and pastry.
In my free time, I blog! I am rediscovering my Filipino roots and what it means to me by sharing recipes that I have grown up loving, and along the way, discover recipes that I myself have not yet tried.
Hopefully, I get a chance to work with you too!!
