At the beginning of his career, Eddie Ross trained as a chef and began working for the Food Network. There, he made connections with Martha Stewart and became interested in food design and catering. Eventually, his love of design led him to become passionate about event staging and the creation of luxurious interior design. After editing for several prestigious lifestyle magazines, Eddie started his own business, which involves creating upscale studio settings for cocktail parties, weddings, advertisements, cooking events, and other events. He is the founder, as well, of his own Eddie Ross brand of design, and his homes in Manhattan, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania have been featured in design and home renovation magazines.


Eddie Ross graduated from The Culinary Institute of America in 2000, which allowed him to begin his career as a caterer and food designer. It was due to his training that he was able to appear on television networks and eventually expand his eye for detail to home decor and design. From his home base in Manhattan, he was then able to travel around the east coast for Better Homes & Gardens. His experience as a food, decoration, and home design expert contributed toward his ability to blog about food and design and publish his first design book.
