Social media isn’t just a window onto a world of perfect houseplants and beachside bikini shots.
There are avo toasts pics to peruse, colossal, drool-worthy burgers dripping molten cheese, and rainbow breakfast bowls to scoff at (no one seriously puts that much effort into breakfast, do they?!).
A whole host of celebs have a hand in this world as well – after all, famous humans still have to eat. Alongside their red carpet pics, hair and make-up videos, film plugs and jet-setting snaps, the likes of Chrissy Teigen, Florence Pugh and David Beckham share clips from their kitchens too. Not to mention Paris Hilton’s bizarre new how to make a lasagne video…
Here are some of our favourite celebrity foodies to follow now.
It is unclear whether this Cooking With Paris video is a total joke or a genuine attempt to bring lasagne to the world. What we do know is, it’s brilliant. Paris Hilton, alongside her ‘assistant chef’ – her dog, Diamond Baby (really) – set out to make lasagne. Except the pasta sheets haven’t been steamed, the mozzarella isn’t grated, and Hilton loves a dramatic sigh. Apparently she is an “amazing” cook though.
Whether she’s knocking back tacos, making Thai food with her mum, or whipping up a dish from her Cravings cookbooks, presenter and model Chrissy Teigen’s feed is 50% her too-cute kids, Miles and Luna, and 50% food you want to catch a flight to LA for.
Little Women star Florence Pugh loves her food (and drink). Check out her Instagram stories for ice cream recipes – peanut is a recent favourite – and tips on making the best ever Martini (necessary if you’ve just been nominated for an Oscar). Also, this Vogue video of her eating 11 English foods is quite something.
When he lived in Italy, while playing for AC Milan, Becks apparently had regular cookery lessons. These days he mostly – and happily – inundates us with pics of all the fancy meals he gets to eat around the world (we’re not complaining, just hungry), but isn’t it about time those rumours of him becoming a telly chef came true?
Milkshake singer Kelis is both a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu and a pro saucier, and has her own line of ready-to-buy sauces, called Bounty And Full. Her ‘Wild-cherry BBQ infused with espresso’ sounds heavenly.
He might be criticised for displaying a lack of cheffy flair on Netflix’s Queer Eye (does teaching someone to make guacamole make you a food authority?), but Antoni Porowski, the show’s food and drink expert, is still clearly a buff on stuff that tastes good. His cookbook, Antoni In The Kitchen, is genuinely worth owning.
If you follow Glee actor and singer Lea Michele, you’ll know she’s got a thing for sharing healthy recipes, probiotic drinks tips and meal ideas on #WellnessWednesday – for when you need something green and good for you midweek.
