They cook, they style, they shoot, they post it online and they keep the rest of the world (read us) in a perpetual state of hunger. Here’s a list of our five favourite food stylists you must follow on Instagram.
Shivesh Bhatia @shivesh17
Shivesh’s Instagram account is the reason for our dessert cravings at odd hours. Both his baking as well as styling skills can give any professional baker a run for their money. Don’t believe us? Go check out his Insta feed, we dare you to stay indifferent to those Sablée tart and pretty-as-a picture raspberry and lemon dessert.
Kankana Saxena @playfulcooking
Be it her spicy shrimp stir fry or a honey thyme bundt cake, Bangalore-based food blogger/stylist/photographer makes sure that you keep your eyes peeled for her next Instagram update.
Amrita Rana @amritaoflife
Whether she’s eating a plate of simple rajma-chawal or whipping up a bowl of chia seed pudding with fresh fruits, Amrita makes sure we’re up-to- date with her kitchen experiments. The Mumbai-based food blogger takes cooking workshops and loves to make food look pretty.
Ankiet Gulabani @spankiet
Armed with an experience of working with BBC GoodFood India, Ankiet has got some lovely food styling skills up his sleeve. He keeps us hooked not just with the pictures of what he cooks, but also with the fresh produce and vegetables that he buys.
Deeba Rajpal @passionateaboutbaking
Deeba is a Delhi-based food stylist and blogger whose Instagram feed is filled with the stuff that she bakes. There’s a lovely rustic appeal to her pictures and we’re absolutely in love with her props.
