When you think about the kind of dishes traditionally associated with people our age, recipes like “Grandma’s Apple Pie,” “Old-Time Scalloped Potatoes” and “Turkey Pot Pie” probably spring to mind. After all, these are the kinds of recipes that people in their 50s and 60s are seen making in the movies and on TV.
In reality, our culinary interests are much more diverse. While we may indeed have inherited a family recipe or two that we like to break out at special occasions – mostly at the request of our kids or grandkids – we are always on the lookout for new recipes.
Well, if you are the kind of person who is always on the lookout for culinary inspiration, I have some good news! A new generation of creative cooks and brilliant bakers is on the rise. But, be warned… once you add them to your Instagram list or start visiting their websites, you may be lost for hours in the beauty of their work!
Since I know that many of you are just discovering Instagram for the first time, I wanted to take a moment to share 10 amazing cooking geniuses that you may not have heard of. Enjoy!
