It’s been said that we eat with our eyes first. If that’s the case, then our Instagram is proof that we’ve eaten very well this year. Many of our chef friends were even kind enough to give us a peek of where they traveled to in our Instagram takeovers. From Dubai to Cambodia to Kazakhstan and back to our home base of New York City, we had quite a global year. Not following us yet? You’re just one click away! And don’t forget to tag your food photos with #FRavorites for a chance at a repost. Here are our 10 most popular Instagram photos of 2016.
