Lisa Golden Schroeder is a veteran culinary journalist, food stylist for commercial photography, and entrepreneur. Armed with a degree in nutrition and journalism, along with a mind-expanding stint at École de Cuisine La Varenne in France, her real-life work experience as a corporate test kitchen professional and cookbook editor led her to writing for national publications, both in print and as a sought-after blogger for clients. Her own web site, Foodesigns.com, features her food styling portfolio and trifling with food, an eclectic kitchen journal filled with her modest culinary adventures and food memories. She is the cofounder, with Dennis Becker, of the blog 2fish1dish.com. She specializes in cooking with whole foods and developing approachable recipes for families, often veering onto the path of less familiar flavors and unique techniques. Her second home is on the edge of the northeastern wilderness of Minnesota, where identifying wild foods along forest trails is a constant source of fascination. Her latest book is the award-winning Untamed Mushrooms: From Field to Table (Minnesota Historical Society Press, 2018).
