"Kiano is efficient, creative, and very adaptable in an ever-changing environment. She went above and beyond to make the project successful and reach our goals. We would definitely love to work with Kiano again."
"When working with a culinary producer, it’s always a goal to create food that tastes good, but Kiano did so much more. She brought thoughtfulness about the people who’d be making her dishes, a compassion for the cultures she drew from, and a determination to break through the quirky obstacles that pop up with new foods — plus, the food was super delicious."
"Working with Jikoni Studios elevated the quality of our work exponentially. There is truly no better food content studio in Los Angeles, Kiano makes shooting a snap!"
