Whether you are an amateur baker or just love to look at those beautiful crumbs of freshly-baked bread, here are five artisan bread bakers on Instagram that you absolutely must follow.
Rachelle Andrade @rachthebaker
The head baker at Magazine Street Bread Co. is the reason behind those beautiful breads that you eat at The Table in Colaba. Her breads are all about local flours and ingredients and we are in absolute awe. Take our suggestion; just go to her Instagram timeline and watch.
Sujit Sumitran @sujitsumitran
Leadership coach by profession, Sumitran is an ardent baker. He lives in Goa and has built himself a wood-fired oven, wow! His Instagram feed is filled with gorgeous sourdough breads and he doesn’t mind showing off jars of his sourdough starter. If you’re in love with those perfect crusts, there’s good news, Sumitran also conducts bread-baking workshops.

Saee Koranne-Khandekar @skoranne
We have been swearing by Saee’s recipes for a while now, and her book Crumbs – Bread Stories and Recipes for the Indian Kitchen will soon become the Bible for amateur bakers in India. Apart from the pictures of her adorable children – a daughter and twin sons – the Mumbai-based baker, blogger and author posts pictures of the lovely breads she bakes. Whether it’s whole wheat+maida loaf or a soft crumb bread with walnuts and cacao nibs, we’re in love with everything that comes out of Saee’s oven.

Reshmy Kurian @bombaychowparty
Her bread-baking workshops in Mumbai have been a hit for a while now. Kurian’s repertoire ranges from simple loaves to pull-aparts and buttery croissants. At times, you’ll find her pairing these breads with lovely Indian curries.

Megha Deokule @acefoodie
Bangalore-based Deokule’s timeline is all about healthy and organic eating. Looking at her sourdough breads - topped with avocado, eggs and almond butter – we want to invite ourselves over to her house for breakfast. We hope she is reading this! ;)
