Instagram Love: Food


There’s something so joyously simple about snapping a photo and having it broadcast out to the world. It’s part of why we love Instagram (follow us!); we can share little snippets of all the beautiful things we cook, make, and create in our offices. Although photographing food in restaurants has been the cause of some controversy recently, I love getting a peek into the delicious meals that bloggers and photographers are indulging in, or learning about the unusual ingredients that have caught a chef’s eye. Below are a few of the foodies that I love following on Instagram.

Food and lifestyle photographer Nicole Frazen‘s feed is full of beautifully lit food shots on rough hewn cheeseboards or linen tablecloths; the backdrops are stunning. Follow @nicole_franzen

Jenny Park, from my favorite food blog Spoon, Fork, Bacon, gives followers a sneak peek of her culinary creations, like this Kitchen Sink chili with Mexican chocolate. Follow @FoodLoveJenny

When I see Chef April Bloomfield’s photos on my feed, I feel like I’m in the kitchen on the line with her. She shares behind-the-scene shots of menu specials and great food process photos, like the making of this chili salt. Follow @AprilBloomfield

Food stylist, photographer, and cookbook author Aran Goyoaga‘s Instagram is full of beauties like this shrimp and herb scramble. Follow @cannellevanille

Blogger Alice Gao’s images have a richness and depth that I love. Follow @alice_gao
