Culinary Development

What I Can Do For You:

Recipe Development - Using your branded product, personal brand theme, mission statement, etc. Hire me to consult, dream up, test and develop a unique original recipe, just for you!

Experience in all cuisine types as well as specific diets including; gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, allergen free, keto, paleo, low-carb, Nut-free, Kosher, Non-GMO/organic, "vegetable forward" and beyond. Whatever food you are looking to put out into the world, I am here for it!

Test Kitchen Hours - Many rounds of testing using professional techniques, taking note of precise amounts and timing for your recipe, product or the recipe I am writing for you.

Product Consulting/Cookbook Reviews - Upon receiving your product I am happy to taste, test and provide tactical written critiques on texture, flavor and how well the product works in use. As well as write recipes or deliver recipe concepts/pairings to make your brand shine!

Recipe Testing - Have a recipe that needs some extra TLC? Let me take the painstaking hours testing for accuracy, quantities, timing and technique off your plate and put it onto mine! Whether the recipe is for your new restaurant menu, new cookbook or blog, I am happy to bring that recipe into a new environment to trial it again and again until it is fool proof and perfect for you!

Culinary Copy Writing & Editing - Need a catchy title or relatable description for your recipes? Need someone to read, edit and critique your cookbook or menu blurbs? I got you!

Food Photography - The online and virtual modern world is a very visual place. Pair your new recipe with some engaging photos to tell the story of not only what goes into your recipe but also show off your brands style!
