33 Foodie Instagram Accounts That Will Make You Want to Eat Your Phone
Feeling hungry? You definitely will be after scrolling through the best food Instagram accounts we’ve found to date.
At Taste of Home, we think we have a pretty good handle on how to beautifully showcase food (like these gorgeous cakes). It helps that we have an incredibly talented photo team, but these home cooks prove sometimes you don’t need a professional studio to create stunning Instagram-worthy food photography—and even just a glance at their Instagram feeds is enough to take your cravings to a whole new level. If you don’t feel just a little bit hungry after scrolling through our favorite Instagram accounts, then congratulations—you have a whole lot more willpower than we do.
If you don’t already follow us on Instagram, what are you waiting for?
The Sweet and Simple Kitchen
Kristie of The Sweet and Simple Kitchen knows a thing or two about incredible food photography—she’s the editor of the mouthwateringly gorgeous The Feed Feed, an account that curates stunning food visuals from across Instagram. But her own feed is pretty impressive in its own right. It’s filled with delights like peanut butter chocolate pretzel bark, gooey chocolate cookies, honey-pecan sticky buns and so much crave-worthy sugary goodness it could give you a toothache (in the best way).
The Original Dish
From dark chocolate ravioli to barbecue carrots to rosemary cheese bread, Kayla of The Original Dish does it all—and as a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley, she shows off her impressive education with flourish. Her original recipes are as inventive as the clever styling she creates for each dish she photographs.
We’re convinced there isn’t one photo from Playful Cooking we haven’t fallen in love with. With luxurious curries and indulgent Indian-inspired desserts styled around flower petals, Kankana’s food photography is top-notch (and that’s just one of the reasons she’s one of the best food Instagrammers). You won’t be able to resist hitting the follow button, or checking out her cookbook and blog, too.
Vegetables never looked so good—until Niki of Rebel Recipes gets a hold of them. The self-professed “veg obsessive” creates plant-based recipes and showcases them in simple, beautiful settings. From hasselback butternut squash to peanut butter blueberry toast, she makes the vegetarian lifestyle look irresistibly delicious.
Dad with a Pan
Yep, Derek Campanile’s a dad, but he’s also an IT professional by day and a pretty darn good home cook by night. He serves his lucky family waffle iron pepperoni pizza sandwiches, pulled pork taquitos and whiskey bacon burgers. And he shares it all through his gorgeous Instagram feed at Dad with a Pan.
Sweet Life Bake
She bakes, she cooks and she whips up a mean cocktail! Vianney Rodriguez from Sweet Life Bake does it all.

Cosette of Cosette’s Kitchen takes classic food favorites and gives them a modern twist. Plus, she creates over-the-top cakes and desserts that practically make you want to lick your phone screen (PSA: Don’t).

La Petit Chef
Peek into the comforting (and flavorful) kitchen of La Petit Chef aka Swayampurna Mishra.

Amanda is a master chef—literally! She was a contestant on MasterChef‘s sixth season, and she shows off her competition-worthy creations on her beautiful Instagram feed, Amanda’s Plate.

Delicious and nutritious recipes: Dietician tested and approved. Abbey from Abbey’s Kitchen claims her nutritional advice and recipes are backed by science and sass and, boy, do we love it. Abbey is a registered dietician who covers drool-worthy recipes for all eaters from Buffalo tofu sticks to Caprese egg cups (all while making you giggle and smile at her sassy remarks).
We were pretty relieved when we learned there are three editors behind Honestly Yum—they put out so much intensely craveable food content it would make us feel like underachievers had it been the brainchild of just one home cook. But no matter who’s behind the camera, the photography, styling and recipe ideas are instant hungry-makers.

Yvette from Muy Bueno Cooking is your go-to for authentic and new takes on Mexican dishes and sips.

Lulu’s Dreamtown certainly lives up to its name. This breathtaking Instagram feed is brimming with dreamy, magical imagery of food in every color of the rainbow and way, way beyond.

Comfort food classics get a modern update on the Salted Mint feed. Chef Deborah adds her personal touch to pillowy pizzas, spicy noodle bowls, chicken soup and chocolate tarts. She’s brilliant at finding clever ways to healthify hearty recipes, but has a soft spot in her heart for a glazed Bundt cake among the roasted cauliflower and radicchio salads.
The Broken Bread
Seasonality plays a big role in the cooking at The Broken Bread. There, photographer, stylist and author Kristan shows off seasonal flavors and peak-freshness produce in her breathtaking cakes, cookies, pies, cocktails and more. No matter what comes out of her oven, it’s styled elegantly and photographed beautifully.
Over on the Gourmelita feed, you get a healthy dose of muffins, pasta and all things sunny-side up, but you’re also taken on a visual tour of the little nooks, crannies and standout spaces of London. Whether Marilita is trying out a new restaurant, poring over the produce at an outdoor market or pulling up a stool at a pub, she treats you to an exploration of the city she loves just as much as she treats you to delectable homespun recipes.
