7 Facts About Prop Food in Movies That Only True Fans Know

7. The health of the actors must also be considered.

Many foods spend hours on set and not only have to look appetizing scene after scene, but they also have to be kept in good condition. Sometimes dishes are replaced with fresh ones, and other times, alternatives with longer shelf lives are created. Fish and seafood are products that easily go bad and become highly toxic.

For those cases, culinary stylists must look for alternatives that, in addition to being visually similar, are still healthy. “I’ve had to make a lot of fake oysters, I make them with custard, a pastry cream that I then color, and with a brush and air I shape them. They slide perfectly out of the oyster,” says food stylist Melissa McSorley.
