Hi! I'm Abby.
First and foremost I'm a follower of Jesus. I'm also a professional food stylist (www.abbystolfo.com), pastry cook, and creator of The Urban Domestic. I landed in San Francisco a lot of years ago after business and culinary school to work in a professional pastry kitchen. Soon after I fell into freelance food styling. It's so much fun that it rarely feels like work. I come across some pretty amazing ingredients, recipes, and techniques as I'm roaming about the city from one shoot to the next. Whether it's for film or friends or for myself I quite literally live life from one meal to the next. Not bad for a girl whose signature dish used to be anything so long as it was burnt, huh?
The Urban Domestic
The Urban Domestic is about attempting a small town life in the very big city of San Francisco. It's the only way to make it without losing your heart, soul, or sanity. And not just any life. A life in food under the banner of faith. Writing helps me process this crazy amazing adventure and because I still love to bake, this blog has become an outlet for both of those things. Like me, it changes. Often. Sharing life in recipe form on a (mostly) weekly basis, indulging a serious baking obsession, and combining my food styling profession with a heart for teaching through online workshops for fellow budding bloggers and aspiring stylists.
