Big Leo is proud to announce our newest member of the pride, food stylist Emma Feigenbaum! And it is with much fanfare that she arrives right along with her new Better Homes and Gardens cover shot for the April issue by Andy Lyons and styled by Stephen Perfetto. It’s the perfect picture to launch but Emma didn’t just get here overnight – she has been honing her skills for years. She has such a great presence on set and the confidence to take on even the most precise, complex, and beautiful recipes. From her bio:
Emma is a New Yorker influenced by her culinary discoveries on her travels as well as the richness of The City. While pursuing a BFA in Film and Television from NYU, Emma earned her Grand Diploma in Culinary Arts from the French Culinary Institute. After graduating from film school, she realized she needed to pursue her first love — food.
Emma joined Martha Stewart’s “Everyday Food” magazine as Associate editor in September 2006, after working as an assistant to Sheila Lukins, the cookbook author. In addition to her editorial experience, Emma worked as a cook for Chef Gray Kunz at Café Gray.A love affair with both film, and food, sent her straight into the arms of food styling– a logical next step. Whether she’s styling, producing, developing, or entertaining, you can be certain her well-trained eye, and provocative vision will captivate and enthrall you.
