Foodporn” is one of those terms that defy clear definition. It goes beyond food photography or videography. Just like the Supreme Court, Justice Potter Stewart said when trying to define pornography itself, ”we know it when we see it”.

There are common elements, of course. #Foodporn is tempting. #Foodporn is indulgent. #Foodporn is often prohibited! It makes your mouth water at first sight. There is often a hint of guilt implied in wanting it. #Foodporn is for the foods you wish you were eating. It’s more likely to get excited looking at a chocolate drizzling dessert than to a stalk of celery (but not always!). The best way to explain #foodporn is to see it, so we’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite Instagrammers and food vloggers accounts that we spend most days salivating over.
