Snapchat stories offer a perfect platform for foodies to show off their culinary creations and broadcast their whereabouts in the hottest new bars and restaurants. With our recommendations you can step onto the foodie Snapchat scene in just a few clicks and swipes…

Snapchat is fast growing as an important social media platform. Even more 'instant' than the aptly named Instagram, users snap and post still images or 10-second videos with minimal editing - well, other than the ever-evolving range of 'lenses' and stickers that transform simple selfies into dogs, aliens, or zombie vampire monsters. Here are our favourite foodies that are currently posting Snapchat stories - let us know if we've missed any off the list!

Joe Wicks - thebodycoach

Self-proclaimed as the ‘man on a mission to rescue people from the awful dieting industry’, barely a day goes by without Joe posting on Snapchat. Always entertaining and never camera shy, Joe posts a lot of his busy London lifestyle, from all the green screens he frequents during regular TV appearances, to his healthy recipes and workouts, with the occasional weekend trip away thrown in for good measure.

Visit Joe's website or follow him on Snapchat, Twitter or Instagram.

Ella Woodward - deliciouslyella

She’s already conquered the realms of blogging, cookbook writing, and even opened her own deli – and now you can see all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes. For those who haven't heard of her (and there won't be many), Ella cut out meat, dairy, sugar, gluten and all processed foods after a rare illness left her bed-bound, opting instead to eat only plant-based food. Follow her for a sneak peek into her recipe shoots and events, as well as what she’s eating that day.

Edd Kimber - theboywhobakes

The original Great British Bake Off winner, Edd Kimber has gone on to write three cookbooks and makes regular appearances on TV. On his blog, he described Snapchat as his ‘latest obsession’ and the place where he ‘lets loose’, breaking free of any rules he might follow on other social media platforms. Follow him to keep up-to-date with the latest book launches and foodie events, as well as plenty of drool-worthy bakes.

Niamh Shields - eatlikeagirl

The author of the award-winning blog, Eat Like A Girl, Niamh has taken to Snapchat like a fish to water. We love her friendly, conversational tone and her focus on making exceptional ingredients into hearty dishes and indulgent desserts. Follow her for in-kitchen shots of what she’s cooking and step-by-step videos as she develops her recipes, giving her top tips as she goes along. Niamh also grows a lot of her own fruit and vegetables, so green-fingered followers will benefit from her gardening expertise.

Visit Niamh's website or follow her on Snapchat, Twitter or Instagram.

Food 52 - food52

We’ve long been fans of our friends from over the pond, so following them on Snapchat is obviously a must. Ever entertaining, the Food 52 team post photos and videos from their test kitchen, office and beyond. Follow for thoroughly entertaining and refreshingly honest product reviews and testing, gratuitously filthy food shots and the occasional food #fail, such as when an enthusiastic cake stand spinning session turned into table-splattered cake (it’s OK – they still ate it with a spoon).

Visit the Food 52 website or follow them on Snapchat, Twitter or Instagram.
