10 Caribbean-based Instagram Food Accounts to Follow – Yahoo Lifestyle UK
In The Know is proud to celebrate Caribbean American Heritage Month. This month our team will be highlighting a wide range of Caribbean and Caribbean American-owned brands. We encourage you to support today and beyond.
There are thousands of Food Instagram accounts devoted to home cooking recipes, plant-based foods, the city’s best dishes, and more. One area that could use more attention on the platform, however, is Caribbean cuisine.
Finding authentic Caribbean recipes is not always easy, and as some food bloggers point out, that’s because these recipes are prepared with a pinch of it and a pinch of it – with feeling. But some bloggers have decided to create new recipes and write old ones to share their culture with the masses.
Founded in the Caribbean, these Instagram food accounts aren’t just pretty pictures of jerk salmon and lamb curry. Follow them for tips, tricks, and recipes for making your own Caribbean meal at home.
Alica Ramkirpal-Senhouse is a Caribbean-American food blogger who shares Caribbean recipes through her blog and Instagram account Alica’s Pepperpot. “My goal is to encourage and inspire you to connect with the flavors of the Caribbean and use my recipes as a guide,” she writes on her website.
Foodie Nation is a food website based in Trinidad and Tobago with the aim of promoting the island and strengthening it through food. You can find his recipes on his website, videos on Youtube and photos on Instagram. Click follow and be sure to try the curry crab filled dumpling recipe!
Annick Mégie is a Haitian food blogger and photographer whose Instagram account @tchakayiti definitely makes you hungry. In 2019 she was a SAVEUR finalist for “Best Food Culture Blog”, but her Caribbean recipes are all winners.
Typhanie is a Jamaica-born Florida-based food blogger who publishes her Caribbean recipes directly on her Instagram account. And there is no shortage of delicious plantains!
The story goes on

There’s something particularly sweet about this gourmet Instagram account. This is where you’ll find Mama Fay teaching her daughter Angela (and her followers) how to cook family recipes old and new like a Jamaican woman.
