Here’s How You Can Interact With Your Favorite Chefs on Twitter’s New Food Council

Alex Guarnaschelli and Twitter team have created a group called #FoodFlock to dole out recipes and cooking advice

Come for the tweets. Stay for the eats.

Twitter just announced its second significant project in the culinary world. Last year, the social network launched a Twitter Food page that curates the best food content on the site. Now this year, a team of chefs and food personalities led by chef Alex Guaranschelli have teamed up to create the #FoodFlock, a real-time Twitter community where chefs will post recipes and you can directly interact with your favorite stars.

“The Twitter Food Council includes top chefs and influencers representing different cuisines and interests,” according to the press release. “Anyone who wants to join the conversation and interact with Council members can simply Tweet with the official hashtag, #FoodFlock.”

Twitter Food Flock is not all that different from how chefs normally use Twitter, where they regularly post food porn, recipes, and give out advice to fans:

But now all of that content will be located in one place organized under an umbrella hashtag.
