Everyone loves food. That’s been true of human society since the dawn of time. Today, though, we have cameras in our pockets and websites, like Instagram, where we can share the photos we take. And who doesn’t love sharing a quick photo of whatever delicious dish they’re about to chow down on?

There’s the casual person that likes sharing a photo of their meal every now and then, and then there’s these folks, who make it their work to share food photos of all the great places to grab a bite in metro Detroit.

What do you like most about Detroit’s food scene?

“Beside trying out new places and great food is the people that we get in contact with. We all have a close network and friends because of this and we are constantly meeting and talking to new people everyday.”

What prompted you to begin photographing and sharing pictures of food in Detroit?

“We decided to make a group cause we all posted food in our private accounts and so why not put our hobbies and interest together.”

Camera of choice when shooting food:

“We use many types of cameras from DSLR to point and shoot. But, our main camera we use is our phones.”

What do you like most about Detroit’s food scene?

“The creativity and variety. One night you can be eating ramen at Johnny Noodle King. The next you’re watching live music and trying a vegetarian kimchi hot dog at Laika Dog inside UFO Factory.”

What prompted you to begin photographing and sharing pictures of food in Detroit?

“We love looking at photos of food, taking photos of food, and talking about photos of food! We used to post it on our personal pages. One day someone told us they can’t stand when people post photos of their dinner. We decided to make an Instagram account dedicated to food pictures so that only people who were interested had to look at them. We are two sisters who live in Ferndale and never cook. It just made sense that we’d start posting photos from restaurants around Detroit. We feel extremely lucky to be part of the food revival Detroit is experiencing.”

Camera of choice when shooting food: “Our iPhones!”

What do you like most about Detroit’s food scene?

“Since the Detroit food scene is still in a somewhat early stage of development, I feel like the foodies of Detroit are more eager and passionate for good food when it comes to them. There is almost a deeper appreciation for really good food that gets made in Detroit. There has been good food in Chicago, New York, LA and other big cities since I can remember; for Detroit it’s this new and exciting thing we are witnessing.”

What prompted you to begin photographing and sharing pictures of food in Detroit?

“I was watching Andrew Zimmern on the Travel Channel and got jealous of him displaying what he was eating so I made an Instagram account. It seemed like the easiest route at the time.”

Camera of choice when shooting food: iPhone 6
