We’re all a little guilty of Instagramming a photo (or 10) from our Sunday brunch.
And no matter how hard we try to capture the best (even going as far as standing on chairs to get the best angle of our food), the result never looks as good as the what the pros can produce.
Who are the pros? Foodie Instagrammers who have a serious eye for capturing the most mouthwatering dishes and know all of the secret gems in their city.
So here are the best Canadian food Instagram accounts that you need to follow – from food bloggers to executive chefs, Canada is has no shortage of talent.
But be warned: some of the photos are so delicious you may want to lick your screen.
