Look at this sandwhich.
I found this photo on a friend’s feed on Facebook. Instantly I knew, I had to know the man who had created this sandwhich.
That man is Adam Pearson.
Adam is a food stylist. He is the man that makes food look good in the pages of magazines and commercials. He is the man who creates the ideal slice of pie. He makes you think that you, yes you, should be eating the food you’re looking at. Right now.
He has styled foodstuffs for such clients as Whole Foods, Food Network, Chiquita Banana (yes, THAT Chiquita), and POM Wonderful. Yes, this is the man who styled those fruits so beautifully that you HAD to buy and eat those lovely California pomegranates. You may even recognise his work from a previous post here on Passable.
He lives in California,with his partner, Matt Armendariz of Matt Bites and their super-cute dogs, Cholula, Bindi and Moxie.
Why food styling?
Why not! Actually I fell out of love with the idea of being a chef while I was in culinary school. It just wasn’t the life I wanted to live. TOO MUCH WORK! Late hours and I didn’t drink or smoke enough to hang with the cool chefs. I wanted to find a career where I could use what I learned in school that was creative and allowed me to be the boss.
