Ashley Strickland Freeman is an award-winning food stylist, recipe developer and tester, author, and editor. She grew up in Savannah, Georgia, and realized her passion for food and cooking at a very young age. After receiving a degree in Journalism from The University of Georgia and a degree in Culinary Arts from The French Culinary Institute in New York,  she moved to Birmingham, Alabama where she worked in the Oxmoor House test kitchens, developing, testing, and food styling recipes for cookbooks for the brands of Southern Living, Coastal Living, Cooking Light, Weight Watchers, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Health, and Gooseberry Patch. From there she transitioned to the editorial side and was the Food Editor of over 30 publications before becoming a freelancer in 2013. Her latest cookbook, The Duke’s Mayonnaise Cookbook, was officially published this past week. In this episode, we talk about her favorite types of cookbooks she collects, thoughts about the process for photographing cookbooks, and what she as an editor for Oxmoor House looked for in cookbook writers.
