instagram food accounts in singapore

Social media trends come and go. But there’s one particular stay-home trend that has been getting many Instagram users excited lately. And it is none other than cooking!

These days, cooking isn’t just a chore. It is a hobby, a source of income, and a way to bring people together.

This year, home-cooking is one of the latest stay-home trends.

Like many who are choosing to stay at home, some of us have already jumped on the bandwagon and started whipping up our very own Dalgona coffee, basque burnt cheesecake and froggy bread. With so many Instagram food accounts in Singapore riding the trend, it’s hard not to be inspired.

And no, we’re not exaggerating. Many home-cooks, professional chefs and cafes have been publishing some of the most alluring and delectable dishes on their pages that we just HAD to share them. Take a look at some of our picks by reading on.

混ぜご飯 is a rice dish that I teach in all my cooking classes at Miele because it's such a versatile dish that can be made to be very humble or very extravagant. This is an easy, fuss-free dish to whip up at home, given the recent measures encouraging people to stay home. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ I popped into CS Fresh recently to prep for a special family dinner and picked up a really beautiful slab of 300-day grain-fed Japanese wagyu ribeye, my go to choice for steaks, as well as some large asparagus stems. The combination of the earthy-meaty taste you get from asparagus goes perfectly with beef.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Firstly, I sliced the ribeye into long strips and seared it very quickly in a cast iron pan. Rested them for 5 minutes before slicing them into little cubes. Cooking them in strips and slicing them this way allows the cross section to be visible when you present the dish (as opposed to slicing into communes before searing). ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ To the leftover wagyu fat that rendered out, I made a simple 垂れ / tare sauce by adding saké, mirin, soy sauce and a bit of sugar, then reducing it down.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ The asparagus was peeled, boiled in salted water for about 1 minute, then sliced into small discs. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ To serve, cook Japanese rice and simply scatter over the wagyu cubes and asparagus discs, drizzle the tare over along with some chopped chives and and the white portion of some leeks and simply fold everything together and enjoy!⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #CSFresh #CSFreshCollective #ColdStorageSG #StayHome #WFH

What’s Baking?

Thanks to the internet, it is so much easier to get recipes and share your proud culinary creations. Even though some food & beverage business might have to temporarily halt or reduce operations, they can still use social media and other platforms to connect with their target audience.

Instead of selling their culinary creations, most organic culinary content now features solution-based ideas like recipes, helpful tips and even positive quotes or stories to brighten up a user’s day.

These trends point organic and paid social media content in the direction of support marketing; where objectives should focus on helping and encouraging rather than hard-selling.

Do you think this cooking-then-posting work-from-home trend will last?
