And the importance of representation in food photography… Elle Simone Scott once said that a food stylist’s job is to tell the story of the food — and in her work on shows for Bravo, Food Network, and America’s Test Kitchen, she’s gone to great lengths to do just that. Combing through boxes of cereal for the best-looking cornflakes? Check. Throwing ice cubes across the room to capture the perfect splash? No problem. Elle joins us to share some food styling secrets — and gets real about her background in social work, why representation matters in food photography, and her ongoing battle with cancer. She also tells us about her new America’s Test Kitchen podcast, The Walk-In.//
