On December 11, FCS Professionals and guests gathered at Quincy Street Kitchen in Minneapolis for our December meeting. Quincy Street Kitchen is a new business started by FCS Professionals member Kristen Olson and Rose Daniels. Kristen’s background is in food styling, food photography and recipe development. Rose is a designer and has owned a company called Rose&Co. They met at Chef Camp where Rose is the creative director and Kristen is a counselor! Their passion is food and drink and together they have formed a business that helps businesses (big and small) to support and build their food brands through strategy, design, recipe development, photo and video content. They even host parties and events (such as ours) in their beautiful studio space.
Members and guests were treated to delicious food including a cheese & charcuterie board, flatbread pizzas, spa water, hot apple cider, and assorted dessert bites while listening to Rose and Kristen describe their journey in the past year getting their business up and running! As an added treat, they gave an excellent food photography demonstration in which they taught the group various tricks and tips in food styling and photography.
