Food Styling

Ruth Gangbar is an accomplished food stylist who has worked with some of Canada’s top food photographers and publications. She matches extensive technical expertise with a designer’s eye for visual panache and culinary appeal. Plus she’s just damn fun to work with. Treat her nicely and she might let you in on how to shoot ice cream under hot lights, make food steam for longer than is earthly possible, and how to perfect the ever-challenging cheese-stretching pizza slice pull.

Ruth also counts recipe development (for Foodland Ontario, Chicken Farmers of Ontario, Cottage Life Magazine) among her professional credentials. Her work has appeared in Best Summer Weekends Cookbook by Jane Rodnell,on a Canada post’s postage stamp,and magazines such as Chatelaine, Wish, LCBO’s Food & Drink, as well as Cottage Life, Texas Monthly, Wedding Bells, and Canadian Living).

Ever lively, always engaging, with a pantry that never runs short on opinion, Ruth’s spirit of creativity, curiousity and collaboration is a welcome and refreshing tonic wherever work takes her.
