Toronto chefs aren't just killing it in the kitchen - more than a few have got their social media game on point too. Better than the official restaurant feeds - these chefs are fun to follow because their photos capture beautiful seasonal ingredients, inspirational eating, traveling, and cooking, and some serious pride put out on each plate.
Here are my picks for the top Toronto restaurants to follow on Instagram.
