I made eight different kinds of pie for the pie shop. The background actors were not on diets and so the background pies contained unrestrained quantities of dairy, gelatin, eggs and flour.

|Vegan, Gluten-free floppy slabs of raw whale meat scripted to be flung about, sliced and eaten raw.|
|These chewy creatures had extra tentacles that the actor would pull out and chow down.|
|Made from agar, these roasted creatures would be served on skewers in Orion's night market.|
|Blood-oozing raw steaks the actor was scripted to pull out of the refrigerator and lick. Delicious.|
|Vegan New York Strip steak: Seitan made me do it!|
Vegan BBQ spare ribs for an actor who couldn’t eat pork or meat of any kind – I developed a delicious gluten/soybean recipe that the actor would be able to enjoy eating.
|These were really tasty! Made from gluten-soybean dough formed on plant-based "bones"|
Raw organs? Would that be Small, Medium or Large...
|Cake-y on the inside, jelly on the outside. Like a reversed jelly donut only a lot more gruesome.|
|Food styling on Location in Hamilton: Lining up brains and buns to make burgers for a zombie teenagers' street party.|
|Dead Wife got a bit nauseous drinking magic potion and (oops) burped up maggots.|
(top) Potatoes carved and painted to look like lobster tail medallions;
(middle) Eggplant carved into clams which I tucked into clean clamshells;
(lower) Pumpkin gnocchi which I used to replace mussel meat in the shells.
These "roots" had to shoot out of an actor's mouth as she was being attacked by a tree (just another day in filmland) The production company didn't want the actor to have anything toxic in her mouth, so instead of making plastic prosthetic roots, they called on me for some food styling trompe-l'oeil. I made them out of taralli dough so it would be like chewing on breadsticks - well, monstrously hideous breadsticks.
