Nora Singley is a seasoned New York City food stylist, recipe developer, and culinary producer with years of training in food television and video in both editorial and commercial industries. Her clients include Martha Stewart Living, PBS, Bon Appétit, Real Simple, Epicurious and The Food Network.
Over the course of six years, Nora worked as a full-time television chef, recipe developer and food stylist for Martha Stewart and three of her on-air programs: The Martha Stewart Show, Martha’s Cooking School and Martha Bakes. During her tenure, Nora worked side-by-side in the kitchen with esteemed chefs such as Mario Batali, Lidia Bastianich, Daniel Boulud, and Jamie Oliver to execute their recipes and techniques on air.
Training under Martha demanded an exacting attention to detail, ingredients, and flavor, with mastery of both savory cooking and pastry. After her long run with Martha Stewart, including numerous on-air appearances as a guest on Martha’s show, Nora began work as a freelancer in 2012.
Since then, Nora’s experience has run the gamut, as culinary producer traveling the country from Alaska to Hawaii and beyond for three seasons of PBS' Emmy-nominated Moveable Feast, to executing a grandiose snackadium for The Meredith Vieira Show, to styling best-selling cookbooks and magazine covers, to developing and cooking (winning!) recipes for barbecue competition shows in the South.
Past experience as a restaurant line cook, assistant to a James Beard award-winning cookbook author, weekly columnist for 7 years at The Kitchn, and Director of Education at Murray’s Cheese makes Nora a truly well-rounded food professional.
It’s no wonder that Nora’s clients continually return for her creative cooking sensibility, positive work ethic, energetic spirit, and flair for making food look and taste delicious.
