Don’t worry, it’s nothing to be ashamed of. We all do it from time to time. If you’re careful enough, you can even do it while at work. Just don’t get caught, or you might make some people very, very hungry.

Yes, food porn is fast becoming a trend we can’t ignore. While it’s easy to ridicule people for posting every meal they eat to Instagram, there’s nothing ridiculous about beautiful food porn. In fact, once you start, you may find it quite addictive.

Don’t believe it? Follow the accounts below for just a few days. You can blame me when you get hooked.

What Is Food Porn?

You might be wondering, what is this “food porn” I’m talking about? Granted, the name is not the most safe-for-work out there, but don’t worry, food porn is entirely innocent. Wikipedia’s definition notwithstanding, actual food porn has nothing to do with the actual thing. These are just beautiful photos of food, usually from up close, showing the fine details of the dish and making you wish you were eating it right this minute.

On the Web, many food porn photos go hand in hand with recipes, and can definitely inspire you to cook this stuff yourself. On Instagram, however, they’re usually just photos. But when you follow the right accounts, they’re darn good photos, and ones that, even if they don’t inspire you to cook, will definitely inspire you to eat. Or alternatively, frustrate you to no end, since you’ll never be lucky enough to eat anything like that.

Gvinot

You may never get to visit this Israeli cheese shop, but the gorgeous photos you’ll find in this account are ones you can actually taste. Well, almost. I stumbled onto this account by accident a couple of months ago, and haven’t been able to stop looking at it ever since. If you’re not a cheese fan, you better skip this one, but otherwise, get ready for a mouthwatering experience that’s updated very regularly.

Yum_Recipes

This is a fairly new account, and one that actually includes recipes for its food shots. Less frustration for you? Could be, if you can be bothered to get off your phone and make something. While the text included in the photos does get in the way a bit, it’s hard to ignore how beautiful these photos are. Get ready for a sugar overload, when they say “yum recipes”, they mean it.

Minimalist Baker

Minimalist Baker is a beautiful food blog dedicated to recipes that are both yummy and relatively healthy. Don’t worry, it’s not about rabbit food, as apparent from the gorgeous (yet vegan) key lime pie you can see in the photo. Most of the photos on this account are of recipes that get published on the blog, and many of them are either vegan, gluten free, or both. Even if you’re neither vegan or a gluten avoider, you’re going to enjoy this immensely. I promise you.

Whale’s Belly

No, those are not whale bellies in the photo, they’re crab raviolis!

Craving some fine dining and seafood? You’ll find it on Whale’s Belly. Whale’s Belly is a restaurant located in Bangkok (here’s hoping they don’t actually serve whale’s belly), so most of us may never get to eat there, but their Instagram account is the next best thing. Sprinkled among the beautiful photos of intricate dishes you’ll also find the occasional photo from the restaurant itself, but this is mostly about the food.

Tanrukkk

This account is not by a food blogger. It doesn’t belong to a food photographer or a restaurant. In fact, many of the photos aren’t even that good. So why did it make this list? Because it’s one of those rare “food porn for the masses” accounts that are much harder to find.

Usually, food porn looks delicious. Really delicious. Like nothing we could ever make at home. This account is all about down to earth food, and lots of it. Revolving mainly around bananas, toast, and affordable restaurant food, these are mostly things you can make at home or get your hands on. The photo are not amazing, but if you’re getting frustrated with lots of photos and no real food, this is a good one to try.

Ida Frosk

Like playing with your food? Bet you never got as creative as this. Ida is a food artists from Norway, and while the things she makes look complicated at first glance, it’s not that hard once you figure out the ingredients. These are both fun to look at and inspiring. Think you can make something like this too?

Godtno

Warning: this account is in Norwegian. I have no idea what it says, except that it belong to a big Norwegian food website by the same name. Despite this fact, this account is full of photos I just can’t stop looking at. The combination of delicious food and the mystery of not really knowing what it is cannot be beat. Give it a try and get addicted.

Andrew Scrivani

It sometimes seems as if food porn is only about deserts. Not so. New York Times dining photographer Andrew Scrivani takes you on a tour of food of all kinds. From deserts to main dishes and soups, everything here will start your stomach rumbling. This account is not strictly food photos — some unrelated photos do make it through — but don’t worry, they’re all beautiful.

Caroline On Crack

Who said food porn is only about food? (other than the name, that is.) This account is a classic food porn account, except it’s all about drinks. Especially alcoholic ones. Well, there is the occasional food photo and dog photo, but it’s mostly about drinks you’ve probably never seen before. Definitely worth a follow if you’re into cocktails.

Averie Sunshine

When it comes to delicious-looking food photos, Averie Sunshine really takes the cake. This account is so chock-full of amazing photos, it was almost impossible to choose one for this post. And really, the one I chose doesn’t do it justice. You need to see them all. Most photos come with an accompanying recipe from the food blog, so you can attempt to make one or two of these mouthwatering things, but the sad truth is that you’ll probably never taste them all. That fact alone is enough to almost make me cry. How about you?

Food Photos Are Not Necessarily Cliché

As you can see from the accounts above, food photos are nothing to laugh about. This is seriously yummy stuff. And when it gets to food porn, things become truly addictive. But food porn is not the only way to consume food photos. There are some amazing food accounts to follow on other social networks as well, and if you’re not the social media type, there are some great foodie websites too.

I know for a fact that the list above is incomplete. There must be dozens of others amazing food-porn accounts on Instagram. Know of especially good ones I missed? Please tell me about them in the comments!

For anyone wondering Godtno is a url missing the dot.
this is the adress with the dot: Godt.no

further the literal meaning of the word Godt is “good” although in this context it means “tasty”.

Thanks Endre! I wrote “Godtno” because that’s the name of the Instagram account, but I did see the URL for the actual website is godt.no.

Thanks for telling us what “godt” means!

Holy smokes. The Minimalist Baker looks like the perfect blog for me. I love baked goods and it seems that it’s time for me to start learning how to bake my own treats!
