I'm Stephanie Amberg.
I grew up in Marin County (the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge) going to farmer’s markets, clipping out recipes from Martha Stewart Living, and watching Food Network. At UCLA I fell in love with the academic side of food when I wrote my undergraduate senior thesis on the Slow Food Movement; at the American University of Paris I fell in love with food marketing (and cheese, and wine, and baguettes) when I achieved my Master's degree in Global Communications. While finishing graduate school, I landed my first agency job: social content lead for Procter & Gamble beauty brands at Proximity BBDO Paris. After moving back to the US, I searched high and low for a digital marketing agency that specialized in small food businesses and, seeing a hole in the market, decided to fill it myself. Since launching Décanteur Media in 2016, I have worked with over twenty clients in the industry, contributed editorial for Edible Marin & Wine Country, and taken way too many photos of my food. It is my passion to tell the stories behind small businesses, artisanal products, restaurants, and most importantly the people behind them. Because, as M.F.K. Fisher puts it, “First we eat, then we do everything else.”
