There is no "Buy two XYZ light" secret here. Great food photography can be done so many different ways. Even window light can be used.

I would study the subject as much as I could from photographers, who really mastered that part of the trade. Another great way to advance is to look at images that are appealing in food related magazines or on Flickr, stop for a second and study the layout, the composition, the angle.

Bill Robbins has a great video and there is a great book Food Styling for Photographers: A Guide to Creating Your Own Appetizing Art by Linda Bellingham and Jean Ann Bybee that I would recommend.
