First there was the selfie. Then there was the felfie. Then there was the Eric Ripert-elfie. (Oh, that was just a significant moment in our lives?) Monday, TIME ranked the Selfiest Cities in the World (#1 is Makati City in the Philippines). And then eye rolls from here to Timbuktu shook the universe. 

Just kidding; we won’t hate on the selfie. And we won’t hate on foodie Instagrams, either. In fact, we’d like to take this post to point out a breed of selfies we’ve been following for a while: the selfie with food. Look and learn.
