BY MULYA SARI AND POPY FITRIA
@ VOL 18 ON JUN 24, 2014

Mulya Sari and Popy Fitria founded Club Sandwich to cater all the artistic works behind what makes food a whole new art. To raise the food's selling value, a meal must now speak for its own, be alluring and attractive, seducing, as to arouse the appetite’s curiosity. Food stylist professional is still considered rare and there are no formal education at the moment for this particular subject. Which is why passion, creativity, hard work, and meticulousity are important if this is something you would like to pursue. (in Indonesian)
