Our 7 Favorite Foodies on Pinterest
Pinterest is a big wide abyss of cooking inspiration (and inspiration of all kinds). But sometimes we just want to go straight to the source — to a place where we know we can find that perfect weeknight meal, a dish our vegetarian friends will love, or an appetizer that will have the crowds talking. When that time comes for you, head straight to the boards of our favorite food pinners. Keep scrolling and let us give you a proper introduction.
Brooklyn-based food and lifestyle photographer Nicole Franzen lets us choose the dining mood we’re in with her “dark foods” and “bright foods” boards, while her restaurant board makes us want to hop a flight to Hamburg, Milan, and numerous other distant culinary hot spots.
Food editor, TV host, author, and California girl Aida Mollenkamp lives in a world where date nights are always prefaced by cocktail and followed with a divine dessert, and scanning her Pinterest board makes it all possible for us, too.
With almost 3,000 pins, Elise Joseph’s “Eat Drink and Be Merry” board has enough salivatingly beautiful recipes to keep you hungry — and scrolling! — for all of eternity. From salt ‘n’ pepper steak to rhubarb meringues, all of her culinary picks are cast in a gorgeous hazy glow. The girl has a vison alright.
Vegetarian food blogger and dog-lover Kate (aka Cookie + Kate) makes giving up meat look like a piece of cake with her endlessly inspiring boards of summer eats, bountiful breakfasts, cheerful cocktails, and just plain pretty foods. If only it were so easy.
An ex-pat of Venice Beach, who recently relocated to culinary capital New Orleans, Joy the Baker is a self-taught professional baker, food photographer, author, and blogger. One scroll through her pins could inspire a new-found lust for baked goods in even the most carb-fearing eater.
When we’re looking for easy meals, How Sweet Eats is first place we head. A food blogger and author, Jessica’s wonderfully curated collection of pins makes weeknight cooking feel exciting and always fresh.
Foodie site Food52 is on a mission to help people become better, smarter, happier cooks — and doing a fine job at it, we must say. With boards for gluten-free recipes, summer fruit, salads, fabulous cocktails, and more, the brand’s Pinterest board is one of those few places we can always find what we’re looking for, no matter how uncommon it may be.
