You know that it didn’t really happen if you didn’t ‘gram it. Your best meal you ever had never actually was if you didn’t #bestmealever it. Neither can you call yourself a legit foodie if you don’t #foodie in your comments, which by the way, has been tagged on over 112 million posts to date.
Whether you like it or not, Instagram is the most popular way to show off your passion for food, and if you are reading our blog, then we know that like us, you’re probably guilty of being that person who shoots before bites.
At FDL HQ we have many sources to find out what is happening in the world of gastronomy. Of course we regularly check Instagram, especially to keep up with the daily ongoings of some of our favourite chefs (like that video of René Redzepi showing 13 different allergy-based menu variations).
Here are the facts. Fashion, beauty, and food are the top themes on Instagram, and food-related hashtags are in the millions, with some of the most used hashtags being #FoodPorn (tagged over 185m times), #Instafood (136m) #Foodie (112m), #FoodPhotography (32m), #foodstagram (47.8m) and #Foodgasm (41.9m).
So welcome to our first edition of our roundup of favourite fine dining food moments, where we feature some of the best photos with our hashtag #fdlMoment.
How is your Instagram game? Go on, show us your best - make sure you tag your best dishes with #fdlMoment for your chance to be featured.
