its been too long….susan stitt food and wild with garnish enters a new universe.
ive been going nuts, doing EVERYTHING – cooking for some really cool people, working at Alimentari, shooting TV commercials overseas, smashing food, making art, pitching on jobs, travelling, writing book proposals for New York, (crossing fingers).
it feels like a new beginning and i want my blog to reflect this…..
this new beginning will have pics from all my activities, travels, behind the scenes on my food jobs, exciting news, and write ups on my fave restaurants. AND I’m going to make some really cool original food, which is my FAVE thing to do above all……
susan stitt food and wild with garnish goes ballistic into the future. woo hoo
do me a favour and like my page, send it around and let me know if you need any cool ideas to make your food world extreme. ingredients, dinners, menus, anything.
I’ve got some cool business ideas too…..
lets get this party started
please check out my food website – www.susanstittfood.com. it is a body of work by me and covers all of what i do in food. (www.susanstitt.com.au is my general cinematography)
susanstittfood.com has my gorgeous pics, press, menus, books, tv commercials and all things MY food.
enjoy the journey – here is the video that i shot and directed for susanstittfoood that signatures the site. the beautiful karen and ruby cotton gave me their everything and for that i am very grateful……
i am really lucky. i have two jobs. three if you count my beautiful babies and being their mummy. i am private chef and cinematographer. i have done both for 30 years. its only the last couple of years that i started documenting my travels and the wonderful treats that i experience along the way. it is an education to travel and dine, and every country and every cuisine and the dining experience there, fuses my food back home with ideas and modernisms.
wild with garnish means all of this. madness with extra…..
this blog is a vechile for me to show and express both, the food and the photography study whilst i am there.
this is singapore recently. i went there to direct and shoot a vaseline commercial. i spent a lot of time in the hawker markets, watching them make the noodles, and the creation of food there everyday. i am obsessed and i love it.
when i am in production or shooting. we go and eat everywhere. the producer and team normally with me. however when the shoot is over and i am in post production and editing i am normally on my own and that when i get to explore.
and this is Bangkok….so incredible and an endless journey into flavour and fragrance. there is something about that incredible heat and the tanginess and bite of the chilli. its so compelling.
i do have a weak spot for asian food. i am a little obsessed and find every dish every time, incredible. simple executions, fresh food, fragrance and fragrance on top of that.
my love of food and the possibilities keep me thinking all day every day. it can get a bit weird…but who cares…right?
welcome to new food. wild with garnish. fresh, simple, unique, modern.
welcome to wildwithgarnish….. im going to harness the chaos of my life and bring amazing food, great stories, and incredible pictures to this site. life is one large adventure and you are now on it with me. i travel a lot to shoot and i get to discover incredible things. When i am home its all about the food, so i bake, i ama private chef for high end private clients, and I’m obsessed with fresh new ideas that challenge what has come before.
its shooting the food, cooking the food and blogging all of the above.

i also take alot of risks in my life. whether it being a single mother to two amazing creatures (yes creatures), using ingredients to re-blance flavours away from the expected, or dissolving problems on shoots that would otherwise be impossible. my film making as a cinematographer and director is edgy, real, honest, and super modern. i am known for the unexpectedand highly technical. my work is purely through camera and is extremely extreme. whether its beauty, tabletop food or my car photography from very fast vechiles or helicopters, i travel the world and i am a gun for hire…… yes really. so as you’ve gathered..its pretty over the top chaotic.
the information gathered and the large amounts of experience all correlate to this site. a random gathering of great ideas that challenge the dictionary of food before and plus some old favourites with some stories thrown in….. ill also post stuff i see on jobs and the jobs itself…
but its all about the pictures and the food isnt it???? let see
……here we go. its fresh and new all the way.
