Desiree Nielsen

Life and livelihood centres around the kitchen for Desiree. An eater, home cook, writer, and registered dietitian, Desiree connects to others through food perhaps more than most. She is the author of a book on anti-inflammatory nutrition (Unjunk Your Diet, out this August) and is in constant awe of Melissa and Issha's gifts for visual dialogue.


Melissa Quantz

Melissa is a storyteller who crafts her edible tales with the colours, flavours, and images of locally grown food. Inspired by those who spend their lives feeding others, Melissa strives to honour those gifts through her food blog, The Bounty Hunter, and her work as a farm-to-table photographer, holistic nutritionist and 'whole foods' cook. 


Issha Marie

A visual artist raised in the kitchen, Issha Marie's work fuses contemporary art with a true love and respect of the edible world. Her infectious passion for this world is evident in her thoughtful, playful, and elegant creations. Issha spends her days as a graphic designer, photographer, and food/prop stylist at Flattened to Fit Paper.
