Did you really eat it if you didn’t post it on Instagram? We’ve rounded up a list of 7 of our favourite South African foodie accounts you have to follow on Instagram – because seeing is believing, right? Get ready for some drool-worthy deliciousness coming your way!


I think I have fallen in love with the foodie flat lay. Melissa’s feed is exactly what I dream food heaven would look like. She wears her heart on her sleeve and sees herself as loyal ad fun-loving; someone who loves to laugh and cook or her tribe.


Jane Bjorkman is the creative baker behind the most delicious looking blog, Baking-Ginger. Her Instagram-account takes you on a baking journey, filled with beautiful cakes, a rainbow of sprinkles, mouth-watering desserts, inspirational travel posts and stunning photography.  Go ahead, see for yourself…

You can clearly see why food is Georgia’s greatest love. Her passion and love for delicious meals is reflected in every Instagram picture she uploads. Her super adorable pug also makes an appearance every so often (the #puglife is real), which just makes this account even more amazing!

Another foodie that also happens to be a pug lover (yay me!), Carey’s Instagram account is adorable. All of her snaps reflect her fun-loving sense of adventure and her love for delicious food is apparent in every single ‘gram she shares. Her adorable pugs often make an appearance on set too.

Anina Meyer is another local foodie I absolutely adore. Just scrolling through her account gets my tummy rumbling and my mouth watering. Anina pours her heart and soul into every recipe she creates. Just look at her simply stunning photography and see for yourself.

Of course this round-up wouldn’t be complete with the lovely Kate making an appearance. Award-winning Kate is a food photographer, food stylist and chocolate lover. This drool-worthy account makes all of my sweetest dream come true.  Take a gander and try to resist licking the screen… I dare you.
