Latteria Studio is a food photography and multi-function kitchen space in Rome, where the old villas of Monteverde tumble down into Trastevere. Within walking distance of four daily markets, the space was created in 2005 by cook, teacher and food stylist Alice Adams and food photographer Marie Sjoberg as a working studio kitchen.
Along with prop stylist Emanuela Rota it quickly became home to everything that goes with food photography; a collection of Italian ceramics, linens and flea market finds, interesting utensils from across the globe, and the right piece of cutlery for every occasion. In little over a year it has become a studio space used by food creatives including Sabrina Rossi, Vanessa Arena, Saghar Setareh, Giorgia Nofrini, Elisabetta Busini and Haley Polinsky.
Food is nature and food photography loves natural light. The studio has three large windows which provide natural light to play with right through the day. The kitchen was designed along the lines of a classic cucina della nonna or grandmother’s kitchen; ceramic sink, marble bench tops and simple draining racks and shelving.
This sunny space also hosts food lovers encounters and is a regular teaching kitchen for chef and teacher Carla Tomasi and visiting cooks with recipes to share. Look at the events page for a list of coming appointments.
