15 Instagram accounts for Toronto food lovers to follow

Posted by Liora Ipsum / January 22, 2014

Food Instagram Accounts in TorontoFood porn on Instagram can be hit or miss. For every drool-worthy photo there's dozens of grainy, dimly-lit and unappetizing examples to sift through too. Even pros struggle, hell Martha Stewart was called out just mere months ago for totally grossing people out.

On the flip side, there's some really great food-centric feeds too; Toronto chefs sharing their own gastronomical creations and praising their peers as they eat around town; home cooks utilizing local produce and products. There have even been instances when a snap of some daily special has motivated me to get up and get it while it lasts. Here's our list of 15 feeds that'll whet your appetite for what Toronto's cooking.

Covering the happenings at all New York, Sydney and Toronto restaurants, this Instagram account documents the culinary creations, collaborations and events at Momofuku.

The owner of Beast Restaurant is known to show off his own gastronomical creations and menu features. He's also one of the founders of the Group of Seven Chefs and travels frequently making his photo feed a culinary tour of what's what.

As the owner of both La Carnita and The HOTB, Andrew Richmond's Instagram offers the best selects from both restaurants intermixed with street art and commissions from international talent.
