Top 10 Los Angeles Chefs to Follow on Instagram

It should come as no surprise whatsoever that Roy Choi (Chego, A-Frame, Kogi, the world) puts some pretty fun pictures up on his ridingshotgunla Instagram account. Beautiful plates of food, chefs, empty coffee cups, cars, sneakers, signage, strange and wonderful things he's been cooking at Chego, strange and wonderful things he's eaten in kitchens abroad. One could go on.

Even if you haven't managed to get into one of Craig Thornton's kinda-secret-but-not-really-anymore dinners, you've probably heard of his food, gorgeous dishes of artfully plated this and that. For more evidence of how pretty this stuff is, check out Wolvesmouth's Instagram pictures: landscapes both on the plate and in the rest of the world, disembodied claws (that one's truly gorgeous), produce and trees and more signs (what's with chefs' fixations on signs) and yet more gorgeous food.
4. Vinny Dotolo:

With or without Jon Shook, his partner in Son of a Gun and Animal and cookbooks and general crimes, Vinny Dotolo seems to be having a good time. His Instagram account is populated by the requisite pictures of pretty food, also one very cute little kid, travel photos, signage and, well, more food.
3. Ludo Lefebvre:

That chef Ludo Lefebvre (LudoBites, Ludo Truck, the world) would have a highly entertaining Instagram account is hardly surprising. After all, the French-born chef has wandered into pretty much every other medium you can think of: portable restaurants, food trucks, Twitter, Facebook, cookbooks, the Sundance Channel, etc. Check out the tattoos, either of self or cephalopods.
