Follow The Food: Who To Follow in 2019

Follow The Food: Who To Follow 2019

We are beyond grateful to be heading into our second year at All of the Things CT! We couldn't be more excited to putting together our second annual list of our favorite people to follow. You can check out our list from 2018, there are some new faces we've added for 2019 and of course some of the people we still love to follow have made the cut to stay and 'gram another day .

What better way to stay on top of things than to follow the restaurant experts – the owners, chefs, and writers who are shaping the industry?

To be included on this list, one must be:

• A chef or restaurant owner.

• A restaurant professional.

• A restaurant consultant or photographer.

• A trailblazing food or restaurant celeb.

• A dedicated food blogger or instagrammer.

• A reporter or thought leader in the food and/or restaurant industry.

There are mostly like lots of familiar faces on this list (it is a small state after all), but we think any of these that are new to you will be welcome additions to your timeline.
