9 Calgary Chefs You Should Follow On Instagram

These chefs have mastered the art of food and taking photos of it.

 

 

Shamir Bechar, @shambcookin

 

Shamir Bechar (@shambcookin), formerly with Candela and now executive chef of Chef Bar, provides a sneak peek at what goes on behind the scenes in a restaurant kitchen, from videos of how dishes are made to photos of cool ingredients before they hit your plate.

If there was ever a sign that we need to step up our home cooking game, this is it. Ramsey Charanek (@cheframsdale) is a chef at Blink, but many of his posts feature beautiful dishes he makes at home.


Sean Cutler, @sideofpork

 

 

Sean Cutler (@sideofpork) lives up to his Instagram handle. The chef de cuisine at The Selkirk Grille in Heritage Park largely features succulent meat dishes.


 Connie DeSousa, @conniedesousa

Spice Party @charcut #infinitedining @vijs_restaurant @chefrogalski #chefsCollaborate

As the co-chef and co-owner of Charcut and Charbar, it’s not surprising that Connie DeSousa (@conniedesousa) mostly shares photos of chef collaborations and mouth-watering meat dishes.


Leah Gamache, @leahgamache

 

 

Leah Gamache (@leahgamache), executive pastry chef at Teatro, offers up eye candy with none of the calories.


Sean MacDonald, @seanymacd

 

 

For perfectly plated dishes that are practically a work of art, turn to the feed of Sean MacDonald (@seanymacd), co-executive chef at MARKET. His only equal is his fellow co-executive chef Alex Edmonson (@alexedmonson), whose own account is also worth checking out.


Garrett Martin, @garrettbmartin

Apricots cooked over charcoal, lardo, fennel, oats, apricot emulsion. On special this week @pigeonholeyyc

Garrett Martin (@garrettbmartin), chef de cuisine at Pigeonhole, posts a range of different food and restaurant experiences on his feed, but tasty dishes served on antique plates are by far the most common subject.


Leslie Morrow, @lamorrow

Huckleberry stains + doughnuts + cappuccino = #philsebmarda #vegan #baristachamp

A photo posted by LeslieMorrow (@lamorrow) on

 

Coffee, doughnuts and cake – a simple yet addictive combination from Leslie Morrow (@lamorrow), head chef at Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters.


Madison Toy, @jmtoy

 

Satisfy your sweet tooth electronically by perusing the feed of MARKET pastry assistant Madison Toy (@jmtoy), who features jewel-like bonbons, chocolates and perfectly plated cakes and tarts almost exclusively.

[Correction: An earlier version of this story had Madison Toy’s job title as pastry chef. It has been corrected to say pastry assistant.]
