Andrew Knowlton, restaurant editor for Bon Appétit magazine, most often posts photos of his scrumptious masterpieces and adorable kids. He also entertains with his witty captions and unique Norwegian flair. But the reason I love this Instagram so much is because he once shared his secret for making the perfect bacon. He claimed it would be life-changing, and he wasn’t lying. Seriously guys, you don’t want to miss out on this one.
Ashlae, the woman behind @ohladycakes, seems to have mastered the seemingly impossible art of vegan baking. The beautiful photos of her creations —which include bite-size blackberry jam pies, chocolate espresso bundlette cakes and raw salted caramel banana cream pie jars— will have you convinced that eggs and dairy aren’t always necessary.
Famous British chef Jamie Oliver’s Instagram is consistent–he posts a “Recipe of the Day” each day, mixes things up with #meatfreemondays for his vegetarian followers and also loves to play around with Flipagram. My favorite part about his predictability, however, is that he often post pictures of himself as well —and he sure is yummy to look at. Following Jamie is a surefire way to get your daily dose of eye candy of both the male and the food variety.
