Hi, I’m Maria Do – professional recipe developer, stylist, photographer, and carb whisperer behind Murmurs of Ricotta!
I develop recipes and photos for online food publishers, brands, and for my own space here at Murmurs of Ricotta.
My recipes showcase real ingredients and are meticulously crafted so readers can make the best homemade food without worry. I encourage intentionality and creativity by incorporating color, flavor, and texture with every meal. If these values align with you or your brand, I would love to work with you!
I believe when you cook with care, your food breaks sensory boundaries – taste, touch, smell, sight, and sound…when your food “murmurs” back at you!Maria Do
You need a diverse perspective
I’m a Southern girl with a Vietnamese heritage.
My hometown New Orleans, LA inspires all of my recipes and food philosophies today. I am also a first-generation Vietnamese-American, so my connection to Vietnamese + Asian food culture is strong.
you need ‘more than a blogger’
I have 8 years of professional recipe development + photography experience working in-brand at food companies and consulting for online publishers and restaurants.
You need someone who meets deadlines + delivers
I have never missed a client deadline. I communicate every step of the way and ask questions to ensure we are on-brief. I meet clients where they are, so whether it’s a quick-turn project or a constantly-evolving task, I work through the ambiguity to deliver high-quality work.
Ways we can work together
Need a fresh take for your food or service brand? I offer robust product testing and meticulous recipe development. I take this process seriously in order to craft detailed, enjoyable recipes for your audience. We will work together to align with your needs and come up with content that is unique to your brand!
FOOD STYLING & PHOTOGRAPHY
With 8 years of professional food styling and photography experience, I offer photography services for brands that need a carefully crafted look for their products. I work with you to create the perfect setting for your product (food or service) and deliver high-res, edited files based on your needs.
BRAND SPONSORSHIP + Partnerships
Does your service or product offer benefits that the Murmurs audience would love? I feature products and services across my platforms with beautifully styled photography for each collaboration.
