The Chefs Who Won Social Media This Week

  • A white paper plate is the perfect canvas for a @russanddaughters feast.
  • Even Action Bronson has trouble powering through a ghost pepper wing challenge during SXSW. (Photo: @bambambaklava)

  • Emeril is in Canada, aka the North American haven of raw milk cheeses, to sample some Irish Guinness cheddar, Ontario cheddar and Fontina.
  • This blackboard special at Bouchon Yountville of roasted lamb saddle, English peas, pearl onions, beech mushrooms and piquillo peppers is a little reminiscent of Hester Blumenthal’s historical feasts.
  • Cedric Vongerichten gives us a peek of a pear dessert with almond frangipane and candied hazelnuts.

  • A Maine scallop dish from heaven (and @ABCKitchen).

Following friends who eat out a lot on Instagram and Twitter is one way to stay on top of the food scene, but why not go straight to the source? Chefs are just as likely to wield smartphones as Japanese knives these days, and they often bring you behind the scenes at their restaurants, tweeting brand-new specials, off-the-menu creations, and experimental dishes in the works.

So who showed out on the Internets this week? Let’s take a look at the best snaps from chef- and restaurant-run social media accounts.
