Summer means longer days, fresher produce, and more energy to experiment with culinary creations.
We've compiled a list of the ten French food Instagrammers to follow if you're ready to feed your inner cuisinier.
La Tartine Gourmande
Born and raised in the French countryside, Béatrice Peltre is the food writer, stylist, and photographer behind La Tartine Gourmande.
Author of several cookbooks and a well-upkept recipe blog, Peltre travels the world conducting workshops and gathering inspiration. Her Instagram is full of monochromatic vistas interspersed with luscious pops of colorful food.
Mimi Thorisson is the author of food blog Manger, a project begun in 2012 after a lifetime of food celebration.
Between the restaurants of Hong Kong, where she grew up, and those in the South of France where her family holidayed, Thorisson has always had food on her mind. Now she hosts a cooking show, has written two cookbooks, and is a contributing editor to Condé Nast Traveler. Her Instagram is rosy and luxurious, portraying the French countryside exactly how we've always imagined it.
Author of food blog Chocolate & Zucchini as well as six cookbooks, Clotilde Dusoulier aims to make cooking more accessible to anyone who wants to try it.
A major advocate of fresh, colorful, and seasonal food, Dusoulier's website is a well-designed haven for aspiring cooks, regardless of skill level. Dusoulier describes her signature style as "simple, approachable recipes with a creative twist that will make you want to rush into the kitchen and try them out on your friends and family." Her Instagram is a veritable playground of texture and color.
Fanny Zanotti calls her blog, Comme Un Lait Fraise, a "dreamcatcher of some sorts."
A pastry chef from the South of France, the photos on her Instagram and the writing on her blog feel like a love story. Favoring shots that feature an abundance of their subject, the clusters of cinnamon rolls and marshmallows on Zanotti's Instagram are a feast for the eyes and the heart.
Kristen Rosenau takes, as she puts it, a "rustic, honest approach to food."
Rosenau's blog, Pastry Affair, is the result of a dalliance from her intended career path of astroparticle physicist into professional baking. She eventually returned to physics, but her love of pastry has never faded. Her Instagram is full of dusky browns, golds, and reds that seem to indicate a complex story wrapped in butter and sugar.
Aran Goyoaga of Cannelle et Vanille was born and raised in Basque Country.
An author, food stylist, and photographer, Goyoaga began her blog as a tribute to the smells and tastes of her early childhood.

Dujardin hosts workshops in Charleston, South Carolina and has worked on several dozen cookbooks over the last 15 years, as well as a few commercial campaigns with restaurants and chefs. She calls light, shadows and contrast her greatest sources of inspiration, and this comes through across her Instagram, which is a dream for lovers of both food and photography.
