As a two-time award winner (Gold and Silver medals in the Food Photography and Styling Categories) from the International Association of Culinary Professionals ("IACP"), Kim Kissling is one of the leading food stylists in the industry.
Since 1995, Kim's artistry and her passion for food have been displayed nationally in every available medium. Her work is the centerpiece of more than 90 cookbooks, countless magazines, advertising campaigns, product packaging and television advertisements. Kim's styling is displayed on the packaging of clients such as Dreyer's/Edy's, Haagen Dazs, Clif Bar, Columbus Salami and the promotions of Ghirardelli Chocolate, California Avocado Commission, Driscoll's Berries, just to name a few (see Client List).
Kim's hands-on approach ensures that her client's needs are met and most often exceeded. She manages all aspects of the food preparation and styling: starting from raw ingredients to the cooking itself, from the styling and set display to the photographic shoot, Kim creates the perfect look for every shot. By combining her creative eye, her skills as a trained cook, and her imaginative touch, Kim brings unique style to her creations - transforming food displays into works of art.
Happy wife and mother of two, Kim makes her home in Strawberry, California, just a few minutes north of San Francisco, where her culinary works of art at home are more often in the form of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
