Everyone is stuck inside their homes right now and many of us have resorted to test and hone their culinary skills. With the beginning of Ramazan, our appetites for delectable food options have also grown and what better time to let your spouses and mothers take a backseat and cook! And while you’re at it, why not take a hint from the experts?

YES… I’m talking about the dedicated food bloggers who do us a huge favor by brainstorming and preparing delicious recipes that give us major FOMO. Cooking is therapeutic (if not forced) because it encourages creativity so let your imagination go wild, take inspiration from these appealing platters on your gram and cook something yummy!

We’ve rounded up some of the best food Instagram accounts to follow, no matter your dietary preference, they are guaranteed to make you fall in love with food art.


Noreen Wasti 


The food blogger’s Insta bio says: “Like to eat, cook, make things pretty. sucker for good (tea), genuineness & a cozy corner. bleeding (heart) for empty restaurants.” One look at her feed and you will realize that she is telling the truth. Noreen not just loves cooking up a dish but enjoys presenting it to the world. Even the captions on her pictures are real and not some Rumi quotes. You can check her website Noni’s place for recipes.

وعدت كتير ناس اني حأنزل وصفة فتة الحمص بالإنجليزي وهيني وفيت. الرابط في البايو. وأكيد كل الوصفات على الموقع موجودة في اللغتين العربي والإنجليزي. عليكم بس اتغيروا لغة الموقع على هواكم. ___ I promised plenty of people that I would post the recipe of my hummus fatteh in English and I have kept that promise! You’ll find it saved on my website, recipe link in bio. Remember that all my recipes are available in both Arabic and English on the website. All you need to do is change the language preference.
