23. Food Styling Tips and Secrets with Kate Buckens and Tiffany Schleigh

Ever wondered what the job of a food stylist entails? 

How do they get the dishes you see on TV and in magazines to be so picture-perfect? I’ve got two of the best food stylists in the business dishing out their expert tips and secrets for how to style food like a pro.

In today’s episode of The Just a Taste Podcast, Kelly is chatting with food stylists Kate Buckens and Tiffany Scheligh. These two talented women were the masterminds behind the styling in Kelly’s forthcoming cookbook, The Secret Ingredient Cookbook.

Tiffany is a New York City-based self-proclaimed culinary nerd who worked in kitchens under Christina Tosi, Daniel Boulud and Alex Guarnaschelli before jumping into the food styling world. You may recognize her or her work from Food Network's Chopped, HBO's Succession, and AMC's Dietland.

Kate is a food stylist living and working in New York City and has more than 10 years of experience in the food world. She began her food career by working front of house at restaurants in New Orleans, San Francisco and New York.

In this two-part episode, Kelly, Tiffany and Kate chat about:


  • The perceived versus actual job description of a food stylist 
  • The food styling myths that have been around for ages
  • The intense logistical planning that goes into a cookbook photo shoot
  • How Kate transitioned from her business background to food styling
  • Her top three food styling tools she can’t live without … and you shouldn’t either!


If you’re ready to style your plate like a pro, this episode is for you!
