More Cuisine...













He's back by popular demand! Veteran food photographer, writer, chef, Todd Coleman, will lead a hands-on Stop Motion Food Photography session at IFBC 2015.

Todd Coleman, co-creator of has seen every side of the food world—from behind the lens to behind the pen, the line, and beyond.  A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Todd was obviously (and voraciously) predisposed to a career in cuisine. But unlike some CIA grads, he didn’t veer narrowly to one aspect of the food world.

Rather, and over the course of several sumptuous years, he devoured food creatively, in almost every way possible. Among his various approaches, Todd has gotten hands-on experience and applied his CIA know-how as a professional restaurant chef and also as a private chef.

But Todd also knows how to capture food and food culture, and in that capacity, he’s acted as an editor at Everyday Food and produced shows for The Food Network.  He’s engaged and indulged his visual love of food as an accomplished food photographer, photographing for cookbooks like The Japanese Grill by Tadashi Ono and Harris Salat, and The Mom 100 by founder Katie Workman.

And for seven years, Todd coalesced his savvy as executive food editor of Saveur, running everything food, from recipe selection to test kitchen oversight. During his tenure at the magazine, Todd propped, styled, and photographed the majority of Saveur’s covers, providing additional photography for features both in the studio and on location.

Todd is no stranger on TV.  He recently won Cutthroat Kitchen and often serves as a judge on Beating Bobby Flay.  However, he may be most famous as Garlic Guy, the viral video that every foodie in the world wishes he/she had done.

When you first look at the site, it may not look much different. But soon, when you take a look at it on your mobile device it will look simply smashing! We've been working hard lately to optimize both the Foodista and IFBC websites for mobile, and the user-experience is going to be so much better. We're holding off on publishing any new IFBC content or announcements until we officially launch the new sites, and we appreciate your patience! Stay tuned, it's coming soon...
