In Bill Robbin’s Food class, we had the pleasure of several lectures with visiting food stylist Claire Stancer.  In these demonstrations she gave us various tricks to making certain foods in the market (like Cereal, TV Dinners, Soup and Pasta) look mouth watering delicious in a photograph because we all know it doesn’t always come out of the package looking very appetizing!  In each of these demonstrations we were given an assignment […]
