Every week this year, we’ve scoured the Instagram universe and rounded up gorgeous food porn ‘grammed by some of the country’s best photographers, chefs, bloggers, writers, and editors. We dug through our archives to find the best of the best, guaranteed to give you serious hunger pangs and food envy.
Milestones include that time Action Bronson instagrammed his 24-course meal at Copenhagen’s Noma (we can’t confirm whether Bam Bam walked right in or waited months for a reservation like the rest of us plebs). Then there was that moment when the Momofuku Shrimp Stack cheeseburger achieved Shake Shack fame, drawing the Shack’s longest line of customers ever. On a more somber note, Food & Wine restaurant editor Kate Krader beautifully captured the last menu (and bowl of ramen) at Wylie Dufresne’s legendary wd~50, which shuttered at the end of November.
It wouldn’t be right to have a round up and not to include those passionate, food-obsessive shooters who never fail to brighten up our Instagram feed. Take Dennis Prescott, whose insane-looking creations included a porchetta banh mi and lobster tacos. And then there’s Mandy L. of the blog Lady and Pups, who managed to capture a piece of butter flying gracefully through the air after a mere 20 tries.
We’ve also got a perfect omelette from Bon Appétit, a Drake cake by Tisha Cherry, and a G.O.A.T. dry-aged Pat LaFrieda burger from Pizza Loves Emily. It’s been a great year on Instagram; here’s to more amazing food porn in 2015.
