Goodbye Dieta: The Best Latino Instagrammers to Follow for Food Inspiration
You could start a new diet or take a stab at “Dry January.” Or you could seize the day —you only live once, right?— and indulge your appetite for fresh tortillas, tacos, and micheladas. Follow these latino Instagrammers for culinary inspiration.
Bricia Lopez Maytorena is the co-founder of Guelaguetza, a James Beard award-winning restaurant specializing in cuisine from her native Oaxaca. There’s plenty of mole and mouthwatering pozole and ice-cold micheladas on her Instagram. Not to mention a stylish look at Mexican life in Los Angeles: check out her posts from Día de los Muertos.
La Cooquette (also known as María Sierra) is well-known for her food-focused Youtube channel. But the Instagram feed of the Honduran-born cook is just as colorful and educational. New mamá alert: La Cooquette just had a baby, so we’re bound for some cuteness overload in addition to her usual recipes and food photos.
Natalia Carter rarely appears on her own Instagram. Her popular feed, Comiendo en LA, is only about food. But despite the name, her photos aren’t restricted to California: while home for the holidays in Bogotá, she recently shared photos of her abuela's ajiaco.
Perhaps you’ve seen Alejandra Ramos, who NBC News named a “Rising Latina Food Star,” cooking on the TODAY Show. Or perhaps you’ve stumbled onto her popular blog, Always Order Dessert, in search of inspiration. Ramos’ Instagram feed is filled with glamorous photos from her travels and life in New York City.
Javier Cabral, a first-generation Mexican-American raised in East LA. Perhaps it’s because he reports on punk rock in addition to writing critically about food: in 2016, he wrote an intriguing piece for Vice’s Munchies column entitled “This Is Why LA's Mexican Food Is Still Not the Best In the US.”
Daniela Galarza knows her way around the Latin American food world: she’s a Senior Editor at Eater. And more importantly- at least for Instagram enthusiasts- she excels at documenting tacos in flattering lighting.
