A Feast for the Eyes By MELISSA DUGE SPIERS
rom sharing a new favorite beer to documenting our first perfectly hand-rolled, homemade croissant, we have all occasionally given in to the nearly universal urge to snap photos of our food and post them to Instagram. Most of our efforts are decidedly off-hand and amateur, however, with no grand scheme for color, theme, or presentation. But then there are these five Santa Cruz Instagrammers, whose feeds are quite the opposite: utterly drool-worthy, sexy feasts of photos that elevate the art of food portraiture to a whole new level of “food porn.”
@decotartelette Self-described “mama, amateur baker, cocktail shaker, [and] fashion enthusiast” Cassie Winslow has curated a chic, pink-saturated feed that gorgeously showcases food, scenes, and riots of beautiful flowers in photos worthy of glossy lifestyle-magazine spreads. Not simply satisfied with providing pretty images, however, Winslow also offers clear info on where to buy the things featured in her posts, and she backs up the enticing food pics with full details and recipes on her eponymous website, decotartelette.com.
