Hi, I’m Chiara!
Food, Stories and Science: if I had to summarise my business with just a few words, I would definitely pick these ones. I am a food photographer & stylist, recipe & content creator and food coach based in Dublin. Creating recipes, styling and shooting images of food is part of my business, that’s a daily activity I do both for my own brand and for clients who hire me and I’ve been doing this for the last 4 years.
I apply to my business the same approach that I have in my everyday life: being more intuitive about food, enjoying it, and becoming more aware of what you eat can easily be part of your days, and can be a true celebration of great tasty food.
I’m passionate about chemistry, nutrition, cooking, photography, and holistic therapies. I have a background in chemistry, nutrition, marketing and massage, but I also had the chance to collaborate for a few years with a photographer, I’ve learned to cook from scratch experimenting in my kitchen and I practice yoga. I always try to keep myself updated with newly published studies, testing new ingredients while cooking, getting the influence of different cultures and getting to know as much as possible about local products and producers, seasonality and sustainability.
After a few years working in research, I have decided to turn my passions and studies into one unique project about food, science and stories.
- I help food and wellness businesses, chefs and bloggers to find their voice online creating together content that reflects their ethos and leaves always the most important role to the food we want to showcase.
- I guide people who are confused about food, cooking and nutrition to find a (simple, practical and straightforward) way to create their own stories around food.
What is food made of? What happens while cooking? What does food provide to the body? Chemistry is involved not only in the composition of food, but it’s also behind processes such as cooking or storage, metabolic reactions or vitamin absorption, just to name a few. Food has a high chemical complexity that influences all the consequent desired or undesired reactions that may occur. Such a highly complex system might be difficult to break down for a useful everyday purpose. That’s where I come in. Looking at food and the science behind it: that’s a practical and comprehensive approach to food, compounds that can be useful for the body, dietary advice, and cooking. I constantly try to relate chemistry and food, searching for the right answer to any doubt with a scientific point of view. I always believed that chemistry is a powerful and versatile instrument to make a difference in the world, and being interested in food is just another way of talking about chemistry.
