Here in Melbourne, we’ve crossed the finish line of the Spring Racing Carnival; a lavish spectacle showcasing fillies, frocks and incredible food with caterers and chefs vying for the title of the most creative and innovative food. While our friends in the USA and Canada are about to embark on the feast of Thanksgiving, celebrating with more traditional fare, it’s with burgeoning bellies, that we head into the festive season ready for more celebratory treats. To inspire your own holiday feasting, we’ve put together some serious food Instagram inspiration catering for every taste and occasion.
@figandsalt is one for the serious sweet-tooth’s; documenting tales of food, family and photography, Cassandra Morris creates decadent desserts piled high with treats like poached molasses apricots, roasted balsamic strawberries, wild pears and quail eggs, dripping dollops of caramel and lots of fresh fruit and flowers. Drool factor high.
Copenhagen based @frederikkewaerens is a 21 year old dedicated foodie photographer with serious creds and over 200,000 Instagram followers. Here you’ll find lots of Danish delectables and creative food styling.
Mimi Thorisson @mimithor, documents her idyllic life in Médoc, France where she lives with her 16 dogs, seven children, writes for her ‘Manger’ blog, hosts a TV show and has also authored two cookbooks! The beautiful compositions with a moody, painterly feel are courtesy of her Icelandic partner, Oddur Thorisson.
If you think you can’t take any more, head over to @sproutedkitchen where Sara Forte is inspired when food is in its purest form. Clean recipes feature seasonal ingredients without complicating natural foods. Detox ready!
