When it comes to foodporn, posts tend to fall within two categories – food that makes you drool over your smartphone; or counter-intuitively, food that looks too good to eat. The latter, when taken to the level where styling skills and infinite patience are a necessity, is also known as food art, and it’s easy to see why. These Instagrammers are artists in their own right, and these beautifully crafted and photographed creations will give you your daily dose of food bliss – sans the calories.
No matter how bad a day I’m having, Ida Skivenes’ food art always makes me feel better. The Norwegian Instagrammer’s work is whimsical, tongue-in-cheek, and simply joyous – for adults and children alike.

I’m convinced Marta Greber exists solely to make us feel bad about ourselves. On her account profile, she nonchalantly says, “I eat good breakfasts and travel from time to time”, while posting some stunningly beautiful images of food, scenery, and generally a life that’s just much better than ours.
Nie ma nic lepszego jak długi, leniwy poranek w łóżku z aromatyczną kawą, dobrym śniadaniem i książką. Pyszne cytrynowe bułeczki to kolejna odsłona przewodnika kawowo-śniadaniowego. rozbudzswojporanek.pl . #nespresso #rozbudzswojporanek . ... There’s nothing better than a sweet, long morning in bed with a good cup of coffee and yummy breakfast! Weekend is almost here! :D ᐧ

There’s a lovely symmetry and brightness about Julie Lee’s work. The LA blogger started creating her Instagram collages to showcase the produce from local farmers markets, and her love for her work comes through like a bright ray of California sunshine.
I love CA farmers markets this time of year! #sponsored With the tail end of winter/spring and the beginning of summer fruits and vegetables all in season, you get the best of both worlds! I feel so lucky to have access to such beautiful, healthy, local produce, like @CA_Avocados, so I’m celebrating the season with a food collage. #CaAvocadoMonth

Holidays are meant for feasting, so for this festive dinner, I'm making vegetarian enchiladas smothered with a sweet, smokey, spicy mole--with all the fixings like pickled carrots, avocado, and pico de gallo. In case the spiciness sneaks up, we'll be cheersing with fancy glasses of milk to temper the heat! #Ad #FoodLovesMilk

It’s not always easy to make Asian street food look beautiful. Photographer Dave Hagerman not only gives us gorgeous images of everyday food from China, Southeast Asia and Turkey, but he also tells a striking story of the cultures and people of the places he visits.
Hey, I've been nominated for a Shorty Award in the food category. Do me a favor and click on the link in my profile and vote for me! OK, enough about me here's red chilies stuffed with fish paste. Yum! #shortyawards #eattheworld

A lesser known entity on the cybersphere, food photographer Marie-Laure does minimalism beautifully. She started with primarily white compositions, but even her later works with colour have a lovely simplicity and honesty to them.

Olga Noskova’s work really does look too good to eat. Her ombre and marbling creations are breathtaking, but my favourite posts are the ones showcasing her lacquer glazing technique. It’s become a fun game for me to spot her hands and smartphone in the smooth, hypnotisingly reflective surfaces.
My dears, as you know soon I'm flying to New York Please advise what is worth sightseeing? For the time being I plan to visit MoMA and the Metropolitan Museum of Art P.s Should you have wished my cake in New York please go to the previous post Хорошие мои, как Вы уже знаете, я скоро вылетаю в Нью Йорк Посоветуйте, что самое интересное стоит посмотреть здесь?
