Big news: We just hit one million—one million—Instagram followers. And we'd like to thank you, and you, and you, and you, and our photographers, and every good snack we've eaten since we started 'gramming in 2011.
To celebrate, we took a little tour down memory lane, a.k.a. our very own Instagram feed, which is home to some real gems, from #f52grams, pre-renovation photos of Amanda Hesser's kitchen (home of the first photo shoots), and some very cute shots of Food52 kiddos Clara, Addison, and Walker (among others).
Here's the first Instagram @food52 ever took—and 19 of our favorite photos since:
