Eating, drinking and cooking must have been nearly impossible pre-Instagram — thankfully we have no memories of those dark days. Now we are fully equipped to get inspired by foodie kings and queens as we ❤️ our way through their accounts.
Foodieluvalatina, Instagram Foodie
No shame in my game! I don't mess around when it comes to my Bone in Rib Eye ? #dinner #miami #SugarCaneRawBarGrill #MiamiCulinary #MiamiEating #ribeye #food #foodie #foodforfoodies #foodsnob #foodporn #foodgasm #foodaddict #foodlover #protein #meat #culinary #foodieluvalatina #ilovetoeat #ilivetoeat #noshame #foodislove #bonein #GirlsLikeToEat #ChefTimonBalloo #ChefTimon
Who is this mystery woman who calls herself Foodieluvalatina? ¿Quién sabe? Her name isn’t listed on her social media but once you see her photos, you’ll have to follow her.
Latin Dinner…Marinated Chicken in Sofrito then pan seared. With Freshly made Habichuelas (Dominican Style Beans) and of course Avocados on the side! ? #latinkitchen #homecook #homecooking #ilovetocook #dominicanfood #beans #chicken #protein #avocado #healthyeating #eatinghealthy #food #foodie #foodsnob #foodporn #foodgasm #foodforfoodies #foodieluvalatina #atku #delicioso #comidalatina #foodaddict #foodlover #sofrito #ilovetoeat #ilivetoeat #instafood #foodislove #kitchen #habichuelas
She shares hunger-pang inducing photos from her fave restaurants AND cooks up a storm, too. Just take a look at that chicken in sofrito with habichuelas and aguacate. ? ? ?
Javier Cabral, Editor and Punk Rock Lover
Cabral is the west coast editor for Vice’s food site, Munchies, and has quite the affinity for punk rock. He’s been quoted as saying, “What’s more punk rock than getting paid to write about food?”
Cabral, who worked as a food scout for Pulitzer Prize-winning food writer Jonathan Gold, will probably be the first to show you a dish from from a cool under-appreciated spot in Los Angeles.
Bricia Lopez-Maytorena, Restaurateur and Podcaster
Lopez-Maytorena is a partner in her family’s restaurant La Guelaguetza (considered one of LA’s best Oaxacan restaurants). She also co-hosts the podcast Super Mamás with her sister.
Consider her your virtual ambassador of Mexican eats. Her favs? Oaxacan cuisine and mezcal.
Natalia Carter, Blogger
Born and raised in Colombia, Carter now lives and eats in Los Angeles. She blogs about it on Comiendo en LA.
Her Instagram feed is full of delectable offerings from the city as well as her own creations.
Bill Esparza, Writer, Musician and Blogger
Come see me tonight @pettycashla, 7pm, and every first Monday. Tonight I'll pour @mezcalsabios, a popular brand among the best chefs in Mexico, not available in the States, yet! I always bring something from my travels and yes, it might even come from a plastic jug. Tastings are $25 a person. #agave #mezcal #tequila #bacanora #sotol #raicilla #pettycashtaqueria #mayahuel #maguey
A total grandma’s boy, Esparza fell in love with Mexican food at her table and has since become a Latin American cuisines expert.
He reports on food and booze in L.A., Baja California, Mexico and pretty much all of Latin America. Esparza will inspire you to keep your passport up to date.
Daniela Galarza, Editor
Galarza (left) is the news editor of Eater and describes herself as a “curious cook, baker, eater, reader, editor, writer.”
Her posts feature all kinds of scrumptiousness– like those elotes with queso and chile – but dessert lovers will gravitate to her posts of sweets — there’s lots of ’em.
Maura Wall Hernandez, Editor and Blogger
Have you ever seen someone look so happy about drinking #greenjuice? I shared some tips on mom.me today about how green juice helped me beat sugar cravings during my #fedupchallenge. Go check out the video! The recipe for one of my favorite green juices is on latinamom.me as well—just type Healthy Colada in the search box. ? #juicing
These #mangonada #popsicles are one of the best #popsicle recipes I've written! They're made with #mango, #orange and lime juice, and #chamoy, which is a sweet and sour #Mexican condiment made with chile and apricot base that people put on fruit and veggies. They're sprinkled with #Tajin to top off the sweet, sour, salty #umami flavor. So good I had to make 2 batches for my office mates because I ran out of the 1st batch too fast and not everybody got one! ? #Recipe on theothersideofthetortilla.com (search mangonada popsicles) or click #linkinprofile for 24 hrs! #mexicanfood #instagood #instafood #sweettooth #mydayinLA #dessert #officetreats #paletas #comida #comidamexicana
Not only does she take vibrant photos, she hooks you up with unique recipes like the mangonada, a paleta made with mango, orange and lime juice. Oh, and a little Tajín.
Juan Martinez, Mixologist
Martinez is a mixologist at Toca Madera restaurant and lounge, a hotspot in LA where you can get a shot of Clase Azul Extra Anejo tequila for a mere $400. GULP.
Martinez will stir the mixologist in you with images of craft cocktails that’ll get you buzzed just looking at them.
Adrianna Adarme, Blogger and Pie Maker
Adarme has a blog called A Cozy Kitchen. Her blog inspired a cookbook, A Year of Cozy, which will be released this fall.
Clearly, she has a penchant for pies, but if pies aren’t your thing, don’t worry. Her Insta is full of plenty non-pie fare to drool over.
Maria Sierra, YouTuber
She shares the ups and downs of cooking, like the time she made arepas for the first time and got burned in the process…but those arepas with ropa vieja look great, don’t they?
Marcella Thompkins, Blogger
Marcella Thompkins started blogging at Cocina de Cella as a way to preserve family recipes and as an impetus to create new ones.
Her food photos are obscene (in a good way). If you’re into food porn you’re gonna like her stuff.
Bren Herrera, Renaissance Woman
Wednesday musings. My serious focused face as I finally learn how to make sopes with a local chef. First had them a decade ago and been eager to make them myself. Excited to play around in my own kitchen and create some fusion versions. #BinMexico #alwaysworking #cheflife #puertoVallarta #iphoneography
It is no exaggeration to call Bren Herrera a “Renaissance woman.” She can cook, she can sing, she can write, she can style the heck out of clothes – you’d be hard pressed to find something that she’s not good at.
Here it is! A roasted hazelnut Kahlúa flan. To die for. Seriously. Do yourselves a favor and make it. Treat yourself and a friend to one. URL in bio. Don't miss this one. ?? #FlanFridays #eatdessertfirst #caramel #postres #Latindesserts #cremecaramel #decadence #bloglife #iphoneography #instayum #foodphotography
She’s the boss with oxtail and the things she does with flan will make you blush!
