In the last few months of spending more time on our social feeds and at our kitchen tables than we could ever have expected, a certain group of people have become the teachers, entertainers and gurus we didn’t know we needed – our favourite Instagram foodies.
We have food influencers to thank for the motivation to try new recipes (when you’re just plain tired of your own home cooking) – and who can forget those quick one-minute videos that leave us feeling creative and famished all at the same time?
