Snacking in San Francisco with Studiopatró

May 25, 2015

We're the kind of people who have to eat every three hours, and Pure Leaf Iced Tea is here to help with that.

Today: We traveled to San Francisco for an Instameet and Nanette Wong of Cultural Chromatics got photos of our good side.

It's not really a secret that we love to take photos of food. And we know you are pretty into it, too—#f52grams and #f52snacktime are proof enough. We really wanted to start meeting our community members offline (over snacks and photos), so that's why we decided to pair up with Pure Leaf Iced Tea to host Instameets across the U.S.!

Over the past several weeks, we've started our country-wide trek to nine different cities—hitting San Francisco, Austin, and Seattle so far—where we've partnered with different Food52 Shop makers to find beautiful settings where we can take great Instagram photos.

While styling photos can be a little awkward at the beginning, once we start milling about, peeking at props, and moving snacks here and there, it starts to feel more natural. So we were even more impressed when photographer Nanette Wong of the blog Cultural Chromatics came to our San Francisco Instameet and made it all look easy.

If we'll be near you and you want to get in on our next one, all you have to do is sign up for our newsletter on the homepage. Here are the dates and partners for our upcoming Instameets:

June 4

June 22
Oaktown Spices

Dates for the following four to be determined:
Big Spoon Roasters


R. Murphy Knives

Four & Twenty Blackbirds

Some of Nanette's photos from the Instameet are below, and head over to her and My Linh Van's blog Cultural Chromatics to see the rest!

I love oysters and unfussy sandwiches.
