The 10 Food Influencers to Follow on Instagram

The only thing better than great food is great photographs of great food! Okay, maybe not- getting to eat the great food is the best. But we can absolutely appreciate a gorgeous shot of delicious meals, and it gives us some serious inspiration to up our game in the kitchen!

No matter your current cooking level, you can find some serious inspiration by heading to Instagram. It has become the go-to platform for food influencers to share their latest cooking creations. Best of all, you can find a great food influencer that focuses on pretty much any type of food you like! From healthy dishes, to baked goods, treats for kids, meat dishes, and everything in between, you can find it on Instagram!

We don’t know what we are more jealous of- the delicious food you can find on Skye McAlpine’s Instagram page, or the fact that she splits her time between London and Venice!

Jealousy aside, this is one of our favorite food influencers and we love seeing her beautiful food shots from on top of her dining room tables.

10. Holly Erickson and Natalie Mortimer


Followers: 132K

Finally, we had to include Instagram page The Modern Proper on our list. This page is run by two food influencers- Holly Erickson and Natalie Mortimer.

We love how delicious all of the food looks, but what we love even more is that they focus on creating easy meals that are not short on flavor.

We are all guilty of running short on time and not knowing what to cook for dinner. Instead of turning to takeout or fast food, consider a recipe on The Modern Proper! They cover a wide variety of meals, sides, and desserts, and all look equally delicious!

Are you inspired to go whip up something delicious? Or at the very least hit ‘like’ on a few great images? We thought so! We feel the same way. These influencers do such a great job sharing their food creations – we aren’t sure if they are better chefs or photographers! Either way, the results are great Instagram accounts that will keep you inspired each and every day.
