Five mouth-watering food Instagram accounts to follow

Five food instagram accounts to follow

I am definitely guilty of spending too much time on Instagram. I can often be found taking a picture, editing it until it is just so for my feed or having a conversation with another Instagrammer. But in reality, when my head is down, my thumb is scrolling and I have a glazed expression on my face, I am most probably oggling all the pretty pictures other people publish on there.

As a self confessed food porn addict, one of the things I particularly love on Instagram are food pics. I know it isn’t to everyone’s liking, but I love food – cooking it, eating it and looking at it!

Here are five of my favourite mouth-watering and belly-rumble inducing food Instagram accounts.


Deliciously Ella | @deliciouslyella

This lady needs no introduction and I am one amongst thousands of her fans.  I first found her through Instagram and fell for the bright images of her delicious and nutritious recipes. Her Instagram account has diversified a little to include a bit of yoga, her cute dog and inspirational quotes, but it is the food that keeps me going back.

Julie Lee | @Julieskitchen

This lady turns food in to art. She is a photographer with a love for fresh seasonal food. Her beautiful collages have attracted over 150k followers and you can buy them as artwork!

Sarah Yates | @sarahyatesmora

Not strictly a food related account, but I had to include Sarah as I am in awe of her food photography. She creates the most vibrant, well composed and delicious looking pictures, so much so that sometimes I want to lick screen. I haven’t yet – I promise, but I might one day!

I came across Izy through her blog a few years ago and I am still amazed at how young and talented this girl is. Her photography would rival that of any professional photographer with decades of experience, and at just 20 years old this is pretty special. Should I mention she also creates all the recipes of the food she pictures…I know, some people get all the talent!

Smitten Kitchen | @smittenkitchen

From drinks to bakes to pasta dishes, this account has image after image of delicious food and a witty caption to go with it. In need of some inspiration for dinner – this one will help out!

    Nigel Slater is my favourite food-related Instagrammer. As you would expect, his food pics are mouthwatering but he also posts beautifully composed photos of his kitchen, garden and travels. Take a look at his account. I think you’ll appreciate it.
