The 12 Best Foodies to Follow on Instagram
We’ve all been there: enjoying a lovely meal we wish would never end, while at the next table someone is actually making that happen. They’re unabashedly standing high above their table or squatting on the ground to get the perfect angle on their decadent dish or just-poured ice coffee. While we may scoff at these diners obsessed with photographing their food rather than eating it, deep down we secretly admire them. For as soon as we leave that restaurant or corner donut shop, we go on our phones, open Instagram, and look to see what culinary magic they’ve captured. We eat vicariously through them, cook certain dishes because of them, and visit the restaurants they leave in their geo-tagged path. Follow these food-obsessed people and prepare yourself for some serious cravings.
