My name is Caroline Ford, and I’m a food stylist, writer, recipe tester, and developer living in Portland, Oregon. This site is an album for my work as a food stylist and a place to celebrate adventures and stories in food, travel, cooking, and eating.
I grew up an Oklahoma girl and moved to Portland for culinary school after graduating with a Strategic Communication degree from the University of Missouri School of Journalism. After culinary school, I worked in the test kitchen at Cooking Light magazine- testing and editing recipes and styling for photo shoots- in Birmingham, Alabama. A fabulous job, but I had fallen in love with Portland and returned to make it my home. I have worked as a cook and baker in various restaurants, and passionately do both in my own kitchen. I’m an avid cookbook collector and devour every food publication that crosses my path.
I am available for freelance food styling, recipe testing/development, and writing. My clients include MIX Magazine, ourfoodshed.com, Home By Design, John Valls photography, David Lanthan Reamer photography, Running Press Publishing, cookbook author Martha Holmberg, Edible Portland, and Serious Eats, Click here to contact me.
