Australia, we need to talk. We have a problem, and it’s awesome. We’re obsessed with food, and we don’t mean we like eating breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We’re talking brunch, dessert, brinner (breakfast for dinner), cronuts (half-croissant, half-doughnut), monster shakes (pretty self-explanatory) and more.


But how do you keep up with the latest trends? Who’s eating what and where?

Well, apart from keeping a close eye on The Weekly Review (naturally), there’s a wealth of uber-talented Aussies out there who are kind enough to put all the latest and greatest in one spot – Instagram.

Check out our list of some of our favourite Aussie foodies on Instagram (in no particular order). Warning, you’ll be inspired, you’ll be envious, and most of all, you’ll be hungry.

Don’t forget, you can follow us on Instagram @TheWeeklyReview. We got what you knead …

1. @AliceinFrames

Ok, a bit of favouritism right off the bat. Alice is our food editor, not to mention a former MasterChef contestant, current author and TV host. Follow her for food-spiration (it’s a thing), and endless puns.

2. @Ieatmelbourne

Tasting this city! Once you see their feed (lol, feed), you’ll see @ieatmelbourne’s motto rings true. (BTW, what is going on with the Bloody Mary below?)

3. @annapolyviou

Masterchef fans will recognise Anna from this year’s episodes. She challenged contestants to create Anna’s Mess (see below). We haven’t been this gobsmacked by a sweet treat since the croquembouche.

4. @thehamburgler_

We recently caught up with Michael – the man behind @thehamburgler_. He gave us a few tips on where to find Melbourne’s best burgers. He has a burger named after him at Dandenong Pavilion, so we think he is pretty qualified.

@barlucasydney though.. Peanut butter and jelly with crispy bacon and wagyu, how ya gaaarn ???? #tbt #dontellmyrabbi

5. @theplateproject

Life’s too short to eat boring, and once you see @ThePlateProject’s account, which features some of  the best use of emoji anywhere on Insta, you will be a believer.

12. @katherine_sabbath

Home baker and cake creative from Sydney, Katherine posts mostly cakes and sweets – umm, is there anything else really? We can’t even deal with this cake, which apparently she just whipped up for dessert at a friend’s house. Amazing.

13. @sara.oteri

Sara’s bio says you may remember her from such shows as MasterChef and The Erotic Adventures of Hercules. We’re pretty sure only one of those is correct. We’ll let you figure it out. Sara posts a mixture of food, fashion and about town shots.

18. @ausmican_eats

With the dubious bio of “Behind every good man is a great meal”, Brisbane’s @Ausmican_eats has a distinctive style, with posts featuring handy little arrows, pointing out the dish elements.

A lawyer turned “funtrepreneur”, Sarah is also the “cooler half” of @Matcha_Maiden and co-owner of the recently opened Matcha Mylkbar in St Kilda. She posts a mixture of food, fitness and travel pics! They can’t all post doughnuts, you know!
