Food and Cheese Styling Collaboration with our local Metro Market

I've always loved styling. From my barbie collection as a girl, curating just the right outfit and accessories when I was younger, to styling food, home decor, and bridal details, this is a part of creative expression that I absolutely love and find inspiration in.

Collaborating with a Pro

Recently I collaborating with a friend of mine who's background has been in everything from wine, restaurants, and styling, to cheese, currently.

She has a passion to create a cookbook, and after talking a bit, we began collaborating on some of her recipes and general food styling. Fingers crossing that she does make this cookbook! Because if the images below are any indication, it would be a yummy one!

While working together, Liz created a series of cheese-centered appetizers. Her love is creating food centered around unique and fresh ingredients. She told me "God was so creative with food's flavors. I love looking for ways to compliment those flavors and textures just as creatively, while keeping things simple."

If you're looking for healthy ideas for appetizers during your wedding's cocktail hour (instead of a lot of fried or heavy goodies!) consider options like this, that celebrate seasonal and local produce as well as Wisconsin's famous cheese culture!
