There’s nothing like looking at photos of delicious food to make you realize just how lucky we are to be alive and get to sample some truly magnificent dishes in our lives. What’s even better is learning to make this très magnifique food at home.
We’ve got a feast for the eyes and the soul ready all just for you, dear Pandas. Get ready to have your tummies a-rumbling as you scroll through the crème de la crème of fantastic homecooked meals that were featured on the extremely popular ‘Food’ subreddit.
An online community of over 21 million people, r/food is home to some truly fascinating photos of food. We’ve collected some of the best ones made by non-professional chefs that we believe would be worthy of a Michelin star. Scroll down before the food gets cold, upvote the meals that you loved the most, and I can’t wait to hear which dishes were your fave ones, dear Pandas.
I had a friendly chat with redditor Sun_Beams, one of the moderators running r/food. We spoke about the debate between traditionalism and creativity in the cooking world, the various challenges that the mod team faces working with such a large and diverse community, and why grilled cheese sandwiches and cinnamon rolls are currently a sore topic. You’ll find Bored Panda’s full in-depth interview with Sun_Beams below.
I also reached out to pie artist Jessica Clark-Bojin, who is the founder of ‘Pies Are Awesome’ and whose Baby Yoda (well, technically, Raspbaby Yoda) raspberry pie ranks among the top posts on r/food of all time. She shared some awesome tips for anyone wishing to recreate the pie with Bored Panda and also spoke about her love for communities like r/food.
Warning: this list is absolutely delicious, will make you extremely hungry (so have some snacks at hand), and might inspire you to take your home cooking to a new level. Let’s get tasting shall we?
