Haute Food is a blog that pays tribute to food and its place on our collective imagery. It explores through its research how photography, cinema, literature, music, advertising and fashion see and communicate with food. Whether it earns a leading role or acts as a simple prop, Haute Food tells a genuine, unusual or tempting story with food and the rites surrounding it.
Created in October 2010, the blog is run and supported by a group of food enthusiasts working mainly in the fashion industry: Mara Corsino, a Puerto Rican photographer and Serena Toffetti, a stylist from Italy, both based in Milan, and Miguel Figueroa, a Puerto Rican writer and photographer based in Barcelona.
