@FoodWithLanden is my dedicated food Instagram. It’s what I’m eating (and sometimes drinking), wherever I go. You’ll see a lot of photos from Paris and Dallas.
I started eating in 1992 and my first solid food was a baby back rib. My mom went out of town and left me with my dad and my grandfather. They gave me a rib and I never looked back. In short, this was a proud Texan with Oklahoma roots moment.
I started my food Instagram in 2014 after a summer of eating very well in Paris. Basically, I wanted to remember the food I ate and the places I went.
I love photographing my food as a way to remember the tastes, places, and fun moments spent around the table with family and friends. You’ll see that I briefly mixed in some photos of food I made, but now I usually I leave the cooking to the experts.
I’m obsessed with researching where I eat – to me there’s nothing worse than having an average meal. Hopefully my food Instagram @foodwithlanden will serve as a mini-guide for where to eat in Paris, Dallas, Harbour Island, New York, Los Angeles, Telluride, Aspen, Bordeaux, Positano, Portofino, Capri, Cinque Terre, and more.
Also, I only post photos of things I actually ate and things I actually liked. I never “eat for the Instagram.” If you see things repeated, take note – they’re absolute favorite dishes and places.
