Melina has worked with editorial and ad clients for over a decade to bring out the belly rumbling lustiness in food and beautiful light to reveal the rich textures she favors on set. Ad Week says: "The New York-based food stylist Melina Hammer does it all: cooking, styling, and photography."
She is also a recipe developer and good food champion, and author of the best-selling book Kid Chef. Throughout everything, Melina searches for an elemental authenticity. When she isn't cooking something delicious and capturing it on set, she loves wandering the forest to forage wild foods.
