Food porn. You know what it is: the act of taking and posting photos of food throughout different social media channels and status updates. To tempt people who aren’t even hungry in that moment into a full-blown food hard-on giving hours of hard work at the gym and meal-preps a big middle finger covered in Nutella dotted with peanut butter M&Ms. One of the biggest apps responsible for the proliferation of food porn is Instagram. Instagram has an estimated 400 million active users around the world. If you don’t already follow me on Instagram, I would love if you did, not only because of the awesome food porny pictures, but follow me because you’re just so damn good looking. Which brings me to this week’s post: The finest purveyors of food porn: Foodies from Montreal on Instagram You Should Be Following!
I love taking takings of my food – which is quite obvious if you follow me on Instagram and because I write this blog. I like to consider myself an amateur food pornographer, if that’s even a thing. It should be, because that’s what I am. If you don’t know what “Food Porn” is Wikipedia defines it as: “Food porn is a glamourized spectacular visual presentation of cooking or eating in advertisements, infomercials, blogs, cooking shows or other visual media, foods boasting a high fat and calorie content, exotic dishes that arouse a desire to eat or the glorification of food as a substitute for sex.” That pretty much sums it up. Who better than industry chefs to be the finest purveyors of food porn. So if you’re down to get dirty with some deliciously porny food pictures, here are some Instagram accounts of Montreal chefs that will give you a glimpse of what happens behind the line and a look into their kitchens.
