If there’s one thing that will forever stay trending, it’s good food. Food has the wonderful ability to not only bring nourishment to our bodies but to also bring us closer as people as we sit down and break bread. Sometimes, for others food is more than this. It is a type of artistic expression in which one can fully immerse oneself into creating beautiful and mastered creations, ready for people to celebrate, enjoy and share. And for the people on this list, many resonate with these ideas of food as they share what inspires them in the kitchen on a daily. So without further a do, here’s a list of talented food bloggers and cooks that you need to follow today.

First up we have 25 year old foodie, lifestyle and travel blogger, Luyanda Mafanya. Some may recognize her from the Steers Phandapreneur challenge where she worked hard in the efforts to raise as much as she could from R5 000. Besides sharing her amazing recipes with her followers, Mafanya also enjoys collaborating with cool food industry brands such as Royco South Africa to spread her love and passions for food that much further.
