11 Foodie Instagrammers You Should Be Following

Monday 18th September 2017

Sharing is never easy when there’s food involved. However, if you’re sharing your lunch on Instagram you really can have your cake and eat it. While it’s nearly impossible to eat a meal in London without giving your Bargain Bucket the David Bailey treatment, for the real afficianados it’s more than an annoying delay to the start of dinner, it’s an artform.

The rise of the Insta pros with millions of followers drooling over their foody pics is an entire industry to itself, with top food ‘influencers’ drawing six figure salaries from their paid-for posts. But it’s also spawned a host of so called micro-influencers (Instagrammers with under 100k followers) giving us their honest must-eat (or mustn’t eat!) recommendations along with beautiful hashtag-foodporn photographs.

In no particular order, here’s The Handbook’s top micro-influencers to keep an eye out for:

@the.xandwich – 15.9k

What: Sandwiches, so many sandwiches

Why: Once quoted to have said ‘sandwiches are life; life is sandwiches’, this guy certainly knows his bành mí from his sabich. No sandwich goes unturned when it comes to Xander’s in-depth analysis of all things breaded. Whether he hates it or rates it, you’re certainly in for a giggle.

@scottcaneat – 20.5k

What: The Ronseal of food

Why: Remember the Ronseal advert? The same applies here, one thing we know about scottcaneat, it’s that Scott can, er… eat! Boasting a flamboyant array of visually stunning photos, Scott’s account takes  bold colours and appreciates the individual beauty of its subjects but also gives us a decent insight into the ingredients and venues he’s using and visiting.

@robsonbarista - 3k

What: Coffeestagram

Why: Dave hails from the ever-cool Soho House and is a dab-hand at capturing great aesthetic. As a coffee connoisseur, his page is speckled with mouth-watering latte art as well as breakfasts
and dinners from the hottest spots in London. He also creates pretty funky videos for his stories.

What: Pun fun

Why: Lettuce be honest, we donut think it’s bean said that we’re too gauda for a food pun. But if it’s food and puns you’re after then we’ve got a lot to learn from this guy. The Food Pundit is a great feed that offers more than just a mesmerising photo. We think you’ll be a massive flan of this account.


@eatinldn 15.8k

What: Even more punny

Why: If you thought you’d escaped the food puns with The Food Pundit, nacho fast: eatinldn will give him a run for his money. Eatinldn, aka Bryony Palmer, serves up tantalising teas, breathtaking brunches and a hen coop’s worth of oozing yolks. If you think she’s good at this then you’d be right, her day job is Social Media Manager for the Jamie Oliver empire.

@eatnlondon – 24.1k

What: London, food and colour

Why: Not to be confused with EatInLDN, EatnLondon is a self-proclaimed ‘photographer of all things colourful’. Duyku’s pics are crisp and capture the up-close-and-personal as well as impressive scenic shots. Mainly posting all things scrummy, her feed is also dotted with candid shots of London.

@toplondoneats – 63.1k

What: Dozens of delictous dishes

Why: We honestly struggle to find a TopLondonEats photograph we don’t want to dive face-first into. Featuring their own as well as a curated selection of the best-of-the-rest’s photos, checking their feed is as important a habit as brushing your teeth.

@eastldngirl_foodieblog – 16.3k

What: All the latest from out East

Why: Let East London Girl Nicola be your unofficial tour guide through London’s ever-changing food and drink scene. What’s more, Instagram is just one of her special weapons, so if you want a more in-depth long-form analysis of where’s hot and what to eat then you can check out her blog as well.

@twohungrypeasinapod – 7.7k

What: Hardcore food forn

Why: Who doesn’t love a good insta-couple? Edinburgh duo Suanne and George are a pair of globetrotters guaranteed to have you drooling in seconds. Based in the UK and New York this is hardcore food porn in all its oozing, succulent glory.

@hungry_anja – 19.2k

What: Food, travel and wonderfulness

Why: We love Anja’s posts of her homemade recipes nearly as much as her beautiful photography. Her brightly lit pictures of fabulous food or travel never fail to make us forget the dreary weather outside and escape into Anja’s world.

@mrfinedining - 20.4k

What: Join the smart set

Why: Curious food pairings are all the rage right now, but this guy takes it to another level by matching food and drink to supercars! When he’s not globetrotting he’s out-and-about in London snapping his food, Hublot on wrist and often also featuring his heirloom Zenith pocket-watch somewhere in the image.  MrFineDining is certainly aimed at the refined reader.
