From TOP40 host into a renaissance food professional
Meri-Tuuli Väntsi is just a sparkling personality on set while we film The Soul of Breakfast campaign. She seems to be everywhere and always with a smile in her tone. She is in front of camera, styling still photos with impeccable eye, serving cheeses for the artists and the crew and recreating a Dutch Baby with Le Gruyère AOP by Systrarna Eisenman for the shoot.
Meri-Tuuli entered the food industry from a strong and varied background in music and journalism. She’s hosted several shows on Moon TV and the chart show TOP40 on Yle, the Finnish national broadcaster, but then switched to food, listing positions in Junior Master Chef and several other top food shows. For an outsider her CV is breathtakingly variable and currently she is not slowing down. A fresh book about barbecueing, a few days a week at a restaurant ware merchant E Ahlström, food styling projects, catering and social media work on top of parenting is a plate full of good stuff. Yet, she smiles through it all creating amazing experiences.
For The Soul of Breakfast campaign Meri-Tuuli styled the brand images and video set with the artists and takes part in the social media bits of the campaign. And performed on the film, too.
Her interests in music never stopped even if not active now on professional front so we found the perfect opportunity to ask her to create a Soul of Breakfast playlist for everyone to enjoy. Here it is. Do you hear the smile?
