Past Clients

We loved working with Stefani! She was a great brand partner and was easy to work with on all aspects of the program. Plus, her recipes and photos are just fantastic! Looking forward to working with Stefani again.

Stefani was truly a pleasure to work with. Her attention to detail, thoroughness, and overall professionalism every step of the way made our job a breeze, and certainly impressed our client. We highly recommend collaborating with Stefani.

Stef is a culinary rock star! She was an absolute pleasure to work with – between the gorgeous photos, creative recipe development, and enthusiasm to share the Fair Trade story – we couldn’t have been happier!

My experience with Stefani Pollack was simply awesome. She was flexible and professional in all her dealings. Stef is the real deal.
