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.

Ramsey Charanek, @cheframsdale

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

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.]
