It's time to show your favorite chef you love them with a double tap a la Instagram.

We follow some of the world's best cooks, but these here chefs are our favorites. Our varied list covers the ultimate cool kids (Roy Choi, Marcus Samuelsson), hits the funny bone (Big Gay Ice Cream), loads up on carbs (Marc Vetri), gets baked (Jennifer Lee, Zoe Nathan Loeb) and more. But mostly, it serves up lots of inspiration.

It's the one and only time being a follower is cool.

  • Zoe Nathan Loeb

    Zoe Nathan Loeb
    Pretty breads and pastries from the mastermind behind the Huckleberry Café in Santa Monica, CA: drool-worthy shots of classic apple pie, warm cinnamon sugar brioche, croissants made with a sourdough starter and more.

  • Max and Eli Sussman

    Max and Eli Sussman
    Two brothers based in NYC, one a chef at The Cleveland, a Nolita New American hotspot (Max), the other a chef at Mile End, a handcrafted Jewish delicatessen (Eli). Together? A feed filled with great food shots from both their restaurants.

  • Sean Brock

    Sean Brock
    Southern comfort this way. We've been firm followers ever since Brock shared his fried chicken cooking tips with us, and he never disappoints. Hot water cornbread with raw onion and tomato, anyone?

  • Roy Choi

    Roy Choi
    Ever since he showed us how he makes ramen (with American cheese, of course), we've known Roy Choi as the ultimate cool guy. Follow him for atmospheric L.A. cityscapes, general oddities and inventive eats.

  • April Bloomfield

    April Bloomfield
    The reigning James Beard Best Chef New York City takes you to the farm and the table. We love her shots of farmyard pigs and perfectly plated meals equally, supplemented with snaps of her rise to culinary dominance. Bonus: Enter for a chance to see her switch cuisines with chef Dominique Crenn at our Test Kitchen.

  • RenĂ© Redzepi

    René Redzepi
    Considered by many to be one of the best chefs in the world, Redzepi gives you a glimpse behind the scenes at Noma, his two-Michelin star restaurant in Copenhagen, Denmark. You'll also get to accompany him on his travels around the world.

  • Ari Taymor

    Ari Taymor
    Want to plate food like a boss? Follow the chef/owner at L.A.'s Alma for a lesson in perfection.

  • Big Gay Ice Cream

    Big Gay Ice Cream
    Do you like laughter and ice cream? Then you'll love Big Gay Ice Cream. Hilarity and dairy ahead.

  • Marc Vetri

    Marc Vetri
    The Philly chef—who owns several Italian restaurants in the City of Brotherly Love—is a proponent of all things pasta. You'll want to wrap your noodle around his feed.

  • Camille Becerra

    Camille Becerra
    You can expect a stylish feed from Beccera, the chef at Navy in NYC and a food stylist in her own right. We love her moody, minimalist style and her shots of nearly finished meals.

  • Dominique Ansel

    Dominique Ansel
    The only Cronut King of New York's got a savory side, too. Requisite pastry pictures aside, Ansel eats his way across the world with you as an enthusiastic follower. Check with us on Thursday for more from the talented French chef.

  • Jamie Oliver

    Jamie Oliver
    Beautiful, vibrant photographs of sweet and savory dishes supplemented with scenery shots and photos of the occasional celebrity (Kelis? Sure.) round out the feed of the celebrity chef. Comfort food lovers, take note.

  • Jenn Louis

    Jenn Louis
    The chef at Lincoln Restaurant in Portland, Oregon, is a fan of gnocchi, which means she rules. Follow for pasta porn and the occasional wonderful cat picture.

  • Marcus Samuelsson
    Find out what is being served up at Red Rooster in Harlem and follow the effortlessly cool star chef on his travels across the world. After all, he did give us the sandwich of summer.

  • Jennifer Yee

    Jennifer Yee
    The NYC-based pastry chef (Lafayette) states that she's just trying to make tasty and pretty sweets, and she succeeds with aplomb. Savory dishes pop up between shots of fruit tarts, cream puffs and more to balance out your palate.

  • Jeremy Fox

    Jeremy Fox
    The chef at Rustic Canyon Wine Bar in Santa Monica is a study in Californian cool, and evidently treats his staff right: Check out the #staffsnacksrc hashtag and prepare to be jealous.

  • Joanne Chang

    Joanne Chang
    If you're a gluten for punishment, Chang will do you right. The pasty chef at Boston's Flour bakery is gramming all sorts of sweet carbs, and we can't get our fill.

  • John Besh

    John Besh
    Travel to NOLA and beyond and experience Louisiana like a native. The James Beard Award winner clearly loves the South, as posts of crawfish pie, red beans and rice and other delights show.

  • Jonathon Sawyer

    Jonathon Sawyer
    The star Cleveland chef (check out his oozy, cheesy dumplings) Instagrams shots of his meat-heavy cuisine alongside adorable pictures of his children. What a guy.

  • Kristen Kish

    Kristen Kish
    The Boston-based Top Chef season 10 winner serves some sartorial realness (she's a face of Uniqlo), plus shots of her personal and professional life.
