Hello, I'm Kristin Atwood, a chef, film maker and entrepreneur with a passion for bringing food and cooking to the digital space.
I’ve Worked With and Been Featured In:
Here's a little bit about me (and pasta)
What I Do
I'm here to answer any questions you may have about food and cooking. I can also help you with product development, menu consultations, and food styling.
I film, edit, direct and produce video content for award winning artists, multi national companies and tourism boards. I also work on sponsored content with various companies for the Chef Studio Channel.
I create and design beautiful websites, social channels and premium subscription sites. Interested in seeing some of my work? You're looking at it.
While most of my time is dedicated to my work on Chef Studio and Foodscapes by Chef Studio, I will still accept select project proposals that pique my interest.
I started working in kitchens professionally while in high school. After receiving my Honours BA from McMaster University and a certificate from the University of Oxford I decided that I just wasn’t finished with cooking.
I threw myself into the world of cuisine and moved to Paris, France where I worked for Kristin Frederick of Le Camion Qui Fume, did a short stint under Jodie Riemer at Buvette and volunteered at a number of small boulangeries and patisseries, determined to learn as much as I could.
Culinary Education and Experience:
I returned to Canada to study at the W. Galen Weston Centre for Food at Durham College and was awarded highest ranking graduate of both the Culinary Management Diploma program as well as the Advanced Baking and Pastry Arts post graduate course.
During my time at the Centre for Food I was awarded the Professionalism Award as well as the very first Gold Medal Student Award, an all expenses paid scholarship to study at the Italian Culinary Institute in Calabria, Italy. I was also able to represent the college at the Royal Agricultural Fair, was one of two Durham students sent to compete at Ontario Skills, and spoke on behalf of the college at the 2016 Summit on Talent and Skills in the New Economy.
In my final year at Durham, I participated in Taste Canada’s Cook the Books Competition winning first place and the Trophy for Canada’s Best New Chefs 2016.
As a Chef I have worked for a number of notable restaurants including, Le Camion Qui Fume’s, Freddies (Paris), Momofuku Daisho (Toronto), Graydon Hall Manor (Toronto), Bistro 67 (Whitby), Quay Commons and The Lookout (Edinburgh).
I got my first DSLR camera in University and quickly became obsessed with photographing food. The more I cooked the more I documented. I started a website to share my recipes, along the way learning website development and design.
Eventually, I started a small company doing food photography, videography and web design for local businesses. This grew rapidly, leading to opportunities working with multi-nationals including Pepsico, Doritos and BBDO as well as tourism boards including Tourism Ireland and Taste Kerry.
While I currently devote most of my time to Chef Studio and Foodscapes by Chef Studio, I will still take on selective projects occasionally.
Most recently, I produced and edited digital video content for award winning musicians Fjøra and Linda Perry’s reimagined song “What’s Up” for the Amazon Prime and Blumhouse “Welcome to the Blumhouse,” series trailer released in August of 2020.
