The problem with real food styling, for me, is that you rarely can, or should, eat the food after you stage, prep and shoot it. I want to eat what I make.

There's still some decent advice in there for edible results..

That being said, when I shoot for restaurants, you can not eat what we shoot 95% of the time. I wouldn't eat it most the time just because its been on set for a couple hours and 6 people have touched it.. The grossest thing I think there is to shoot is chicken and turkey. 99% of the fowl that I have photographed for ads is completely raw in the middle and has been cooked with a blowtorch.

One of the trickier shoots I did was for Phat Matt's Baconpalooza special, it required shooting food as it went out for service. No time to shoot before with staging. Man did I get lucky.

Well this explains why your pictures of your SRF beef rib cook was awesome.
