It’s time for my next installment of “Get to Know” and this time I’m talking to my all time favorite food stylist… Adam Pearson!
Not only did Adam food style my cookbook and a ton of recipes you see here on What’s Gaby Cooking, but he’s worked on projects with Food Network, Cooking Channel, Crate and Barrel, Whole Foods and Food + Wine to name a few…plus about a gazillion beautiful cookbooks. He’s one of my favorite people in the whole wide world and he’s hysterical! I’m pretty sure he can read my mind sometimes when it comes to food and we share a mutual love of pretty much every TV show on HBO, Showtime and Bravo! His food styling abilities seriously rock my world and I love everything that comes out of his kitchen.
