From May 2018, one of the world’s most prestigious cooking schools, the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), will offer two new courses that focus on food photography and food styling, according to a report in The New York Times.
With alumni including the likes of Grant Achatz, Anthony Bourdain and Roy Choi, CIA’s future students will be taught camera and lighting skills, shot composition and cooking tricks to make their plates more visually appealing and ‘Instagrammable’ on social media platforms.
The aim of the new courses is also to provide students with certain skills should they choose a food career away from the kitchen, such as in food education or media.
