Are you missing restaurants, their incredible food, the hustle and bustle of the city and the laughter of people enjoying a decadent meal en terrasse? We are too. We might not be able to sit down and enjoy a magret de canard, but we can try to replicate a restaurant-like experience at home. To give you some inspiration, we selected our favorite French Instagram food accounts.
Note from HiP Paris: Below you will discover the tried and true and many modern recipes. You will also notice the French have embraced many American staples like brownies, cookies and pancakes! Let us know your thoughts on this and your favorite recipes below in the comments.
Clémentine’s well-curated feed would make anyone hungry. From decadent French toasts and gooey brownies to pizza, ramen, and French specialities like madeleines and quiches, the inspiration for your next meal is a click away.
If you are looking for a feed that’s as pleasing to the eyes as it is to the taste buds, look no further than Emilie Franzo. Her pictures will transport you to a cozy, rustic kitchen in the French countryside.
Stephanie is a food blogger as well as a food photographer and stylist, and that shows on her Instagram feed. If you are after tasty recipes, pretty pictures, and tips on where to eat in Lyon, Stephanie is your woman.
Two old friends—one a photographer, the other a passionate foodie—are behind the scenes of the blog and Instagram account Free The Pickle. Daniela and Natacha share homey, comforting vegetarian recipes that the whole family can easily replicate and enjoy.
Another food photographer with a glorious feed and even better recipes, Megane’s pictures make us want to start cooking immediately. First on our list of recipes to try: pulled pork gua bao and prawn and coconut milk risotto.
Most say that Lyon is the French capital of food (don’t tell Parisians), and there are certainly a lot of foodies in the birthplace of quenelles. From oysters to fancy cheese platters and crêpes with caramel and salted butter, Sandrine’s feed will bring France to you.
A gorgeous feed by a Parisian blogger and photographer. Cyrielle started her work life as a psychologist before turning to food full time. On her account, you’ll find a lot of delicious-looking food, but also snippets of her life as a freelancer and mom in Paris.
One of the pioneers of gluten-free, healthy cooking in France, Angèle started her career with a little guinguette (a tiny restaurant that only offered takeaway) in central Paris, where she sold her delicious food to people on their lunch breaks. Two guinguettes and six books later, she is still teaching the French how to make healthy food taste delicious.
Another Instagram feed, another Lyonnaise. Céline is an architect turned food blogger. Her recipes are wholesome and delicious, perfect for finding daily inspiration for sweet treats and family dinners.
Another mouth-watering feed by a food photographer and blogger, this time based in breezy Bretagne. On Aurélie’s feed, you will find the occasional savory picture, but her focus is firmly on desserts. If you are after decadent chocolate cookies or the most gorgeous looking pear and ginger cake, you should follow her.
