7 Chefs with Drool-Worthy Instagram Feeds

We scoured the delicious feeds of #TopChef vets, from Fabio to Mike Isabella. Here's who to follow NOW. 

You’re the one who shoots like 15 views of each course at varying angles before anyone at the table is permitted to eat. In your defense, your Instagram feed is a seriously well-curated collection of food porn, and you’ve got loyal followers to please!

But how does your IG stack up against the pros?! See for yourself here: We’ve compiled a list of Top Chef alums with some of the most epic Instagram feeds in the game. Here’s who to follow and why:

Sarah Grueneberg, Season 9

Not bad!!! #pizza at home!

Chef Grueneberg is gearing up to open a new restaurant, Monteverde, in Chicago. As she preps, she’s posting drool-inspiring dishes, like this ricotta al forno we’d die for. Her feed is also all about color, making art out of multicolored late-season tomatoes.
Casey Thompson, Season 3 and Season 8: All-Stars

Wanna party with us?! Bring your appetite! #home #birthdayboy @harumphwines

Some of Casey’s most compelling shots are the ones that show the most simple — and totally delicious — things to eat: an impeccable slice of bread with butter, seafood served simply over ice, or a killer sandwich stacked high. Bonus for dog lovers: it’s also a pup-filled feed!

Fabio Viviani, Season 5 and Season 8: All-Stars

Like any brand new dad, Fabio is proudly using his feed to show off his baby bundle. But on a more typical week, his feed is educational: He posts clearly labeled and easy-to-follow recipes, like this one for mandarin pana cotta, or this one for panzanella with heirloom tomatoes.

Brooke Williamson, Season 10

Chef Williamson offers an array of amazing process shots — making something as simple as passion fruit on a cutting board look like art. In addition to some over-the-top, don’t-try-this-at-home dishes, she also shows a glimpse into the simple foods she makes at home that look reasonably easy and totally steal worthy — like this post-SoulCycle avocado and egg snack.

Mike Isabella, Season 6 and Season 8: All-Stars

Testing our crab bake for labor day weekend @kapnostaverna

Mike’s Insta is a bit under the radar, with just over 1,200 followers. But it includes a slow if steady trickle of insane-looking noms like indulgent pizzas and pastas and rich-looking desserts… plus the occasional non-food-related aspirational snap, like this one of a pool within Italy's Lake Como. Not too shabby!

Ed Cotton, Season 7

Ed is now executive chef at Sotto 13 in New York. So appropriately, his feed is filled with some of the restaurant’s signature wood-fired pizzas, which you’ll want to grab through your screen. Vegetarians have been hereby warned.

Chris Crary, Season 9

We love Chris’ feed for its mix of high and low: super artful presentations of fancy foods, mixed with totally accessible shots of loaded burgers and grilled meats.
