Recipe & Food Styling | Tofu Pudding or Sattvik Kheer
The power to make food look mouth-watering on print and media is so inspiring and rewarding. As a food lover I feel fortunate to have worked with some of the best photographers and production houses in Chennai.
Last month was crazy as my shooting schedule went haywire with food styling projects pouring in from every possible media in the town..television media, magazines, packaging and You tube channels.
After a lot of filtering, here are some candid shots from the photo shoot which I accepted & executed for various medias in Chennai some time back.
I like to document all my styling assignments on Lite Bite as it helps me keep track of the companies and brands I worked for. Projects which made me happy, kept me busy and also made sure that I am away from the social media network for some more time 🙂
I styled the products for Everest Rusks at my home which was beautifully photographed by Prabhu.
Styled some Indian desserts recipes with Arjun Dogra for Aniva (Hatsun) shoot.
More frozen food snacks with Venkat Ram for Oyalo (Hatsun) shoot.
Food styling for a popular You Tube channel called ‘Put Chutney‘ with Aswin Rao.
And here is a recipe for this month that I cooked and styled for Harmony, an Indian magazine I am working for. It’s a Sattvik Kheer recipe made with Tofu and soy milk.
