This food styling workshop was everything I had hoped for and more. Five minutes into the online webinar, I knew I was right to sign up. Abby is so knowledgable about every aspect of food styling and her demonstrations were outstanding. I would recommend this workshop to anyone looking to learn more about food styling.

I had the absolute pleasure of attending a food styling workshop with @abbystolfo a couple weeks ago and it was SO much fun! I learned a ton as she pushed me out of my comfort zone (read: rut). I would highly recommend this class for anyone who wants to learn more about food styling and improve that particular skill set!

I loved that this workshop was focused on styling only, not photography with styling as an afterthought. It was way beyond what I could have even hoped for. So well done!!
