The Social Media Guide to Food

This piece was originally published over at HOUSE by House & Garden.

If you love food - whether that's eating, cooking or both - social media is indispensable.  Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, Tumblr... It's difficult to know where to start when there is such an overwhelming number of social media platforms and plenty of talented folk on every single one of them. 

Here's a list of our favourite social media movers and skakers in the food world. Whether it's useful cooking tips, stunning photography, creative recipe ideas or inspirational food styling you're looking for, bookmarking this guide will come in handy. If you think we've missed any out, please comment via Facebook below or let us know on Twitter @_houseandgarden. Dig in...

Miss Foodwise 

Miss Foodwise is the pseudonym of Regula Ysewijn, a talented food stylist and self-confessed Anglophile from Flanders, the Dutch speaking part of Belgium. She is passionate about British food and its history, as evidenced by her beautiful cookbook,  Pride and Pudding: The History of British Puddings, Savoury and Sweet (see our favourite recipes from it).

Smitten Kitchen

Smitten Kitchen Cookbook is one of the best. Full stop. We love Deb Perelman (read our interview with her). Her social media tagline is "the place to find your new favorite thing to cook", which is absolutely right; her recipes are inspired yet stunningly simple and totally doable. We're particularly excited about getting cooking tips and being taken on food tours by adding her on Snapchat.

Eating NYC

Tacos at Tacombi, sweet potato fries at byCHLOE., green tea noodles at Mission Chinese Food, brunch pizza at Rubirosa, freakshakes at Black Tap, babka at Sadelle's. Hungry yet? If you plan to visit New York or take an interest in food trends (most of them start in the Big Apple, after all), follow Eating NYC on Instagram and add Alexa on Snapchat.

Olia Hercules

Authentic. That is the one word we'd use to describe London-based chef and food writer Olia Hercules. Born and raised in southern Ukraine, her award-winning 2015 cookbook Mamushka was a remarkable celebration of eatern European cooking. Olia's Instagram is made up of travel snaps, selfies and whatever else takes her fancy, and we love her feed for it.

Cravings in Amsterdam

Paola modestly describes her blog, Cravings in Amsterdam, as "easy recipes for everyday cooking". But it offers some of the most impeccable food styling we've ever seen - each dish is meticulously crafted to perfection. If you'd like to have a go at making an avocado rose, she has helpfully posted a tutorial video on Instagram. Add her on Snapchat to be taken on adventures in Amsterdam.
