Food & Drinks, Life

These 5 Instagrammers will show you the real Italy

Italy's food Instagrammers are my drug of choice.

I’ve been living away from my home in Italy for many years now. Loving food as much as I do, food Instagrammers have become my lifeline. Now I have a taste of my Sunday lasagna again, but I happen to not live anymore in Italy and you need your daily dose of the Peninsula when you live abroad. Here are a few of the Italian Instagrammers who can deliver that to you.

5. A Gipsy In The Kitchen, @a_gipsy_in_the_kitchen

Le cipolle di Breme detta "sigulla" in dialetto e rinominata come La Dolcissima per il suo straordinario sapore è coltivata con la stessa filiera del 906 d. C. Il lavoro richiesto per la coltivazione è complesso: i semi vengono posti a bagno, con luna calante, in sacchi di iuta;successivamente, appena germinati, vengono recuperati e seminati in vivaio. Dopo un breve periodo le piantine vengono trapiantate in campo, Il tempo della raccolta è da giugno e si protrae per circa due mesi. Noi ne abbiamo portati a casa due sacchi e comincerò una favolosa produzione di marmellate. Ps. È super afrodisiaca ? #agipsyinthekitchen #agipsyinthekitchengoessummer #secretproject { @ovspeople #ovspeople @missoni #missoni #GalaxyS6 #Fotosociality @hyundai_italia ? by @me_supertramp ❤️? // ? by @_giulia_love_ }

In what has become one of my favorite Instagram accounts ever, Alice Agnelli will give you the perfect mix of two distinctively Italian traits: style and food. She’s turned the first into her day job. But her elegant food photography will make you want to pack your bags and take the first plane to Italy.

This is a kitchen where I could live! Giuseppina is like her kitchen, warm and welcoming!

Giulia is an amazing food blogger, photographer and writer. When she’s not posting elegant food photos, her Instagram will give you a glimpse of the breathtaking Tuscany panorama. She makes everything look absolutely easy, effortless, and, for me, all the more fascinating.

3. What Italy Is, @whatitalyis

This account collects photos from seemingly every amateur in Italy. Each post is completely different from the last, but every photographer has one thing in common with the rest: their love for their country and their aim of sharing its beauty with the world.

2. Not My Nonni, @notmynonni

Everyone knows how important Nonni are for Italians. They’re the backbone of every family. This funny account by Instagrammer @tianapix collects photos of grandparents around the Peninsula to show the truest faces of Italy.

I have to admit that I started following travel blogger Valentina’s account just because of her handle, but I’ve never regretted that choice. You can literally never have too much Tuscany, and trust me – you won’t get tired of her photos.
