FAQs

What is Eat Simple Food?

Eat Simple Food ™ is a national recipe development and food photography service, as well as a local Charleston, SC private chef business.

I can help with recipe development & food photography by creating recipes for restaurants, cookbooks, food products, or culinary equipment companies.  I’ve also started, grown, operated, and sold a brick and mortar retail food production kitchen if you need small business food consulting.

Please contact beckie@eatsimplefood.com or phone at 843-410-FOOD (3663) for a media kit if you are interested in advertising, paid sponsorships (I have to believe in and love your product!), or to create content / photos for your company, website, magazine, etc…

Would you be interested in doing a sponsored post/partnership?

Depends on the product. Eat Simple Food occasionally partners with brands and products I believe in. Drop a line if you think your product is a good fit and you’re interested in working with me through sponsorship or advertising.

How Does Small Business Consulting or Recipe Development Services Work?

Rates start at $75 a hour and project packages can be discussed for long term commitment.  Email beckie@eatsimplefood.com or phone at 843-410-FOOD (3663) to set up a consultation.

How do you come up with recipes?

I’ve been cooking a long time and the evolution of recipe development has changed and will continue to do so.  I’m inspired by ingredients, leftovers, and my clients.  Some clients send me recipes or ideas they’d like to try.  I’ll generally research the recipe, think about what they like, and modify it several times with several different clients to come up with “a perfect recipe for most”.  I’m also a big fan of challenges so work with what a client has or what’s in my refrigerator/pantry without going grocery shopping.
