Anyone know anything about the quality of Rori Trovato's work as a food stylist?

Seems as though Rori Trovato is pretty good and has some clever ideas for presentation of food. I just did a quick google on her and looked at some of her images. The photography is beautiful and done by her husband. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish between good food styling and good photography-they go hand in hand. Weaknesses in either are often very apparent.
I don't know of her, but it seems as though she might be centered elsewhere in the country than New York-the pond I'm currently swimming in.

Thank you very mcch for the input. Do you think I might be off base if I say she reminds me of a new Martha Stewart. At least her book(s) do and who she is trying to appeal to. What do you think?

Mr Cook
Yes, Rori has a very upscale style that has great appeal to the larger American market.
I've met and worked with several of the "New Martha Stewart's". Katie Brown, Ina Garten Rachael Ray, et al. They all seem to be the flavor of the minute. Frankly, I think the whole concept of the definitive American "Style Maven" is kind of tired in the eyes of most people. Even Martha is having trouble filling the seats on her TV show.
It's too bad that there only seems to be room in the public's eye for one at a time and the pressures meet every need of everyone is really, just too much.
Maybe in a few years, we'll get a new talent that really resonates, but until then, I'm just cooki9ng and shooting away.
What is is that interests you about food styling? I might be able to answer some q's.
