Most chefs use Twitter as a promotional tool. Some take to the social network to rant against critics. Yet others look for new employees. But Parisian chef Alain Passard uses Twitter for one purpose and one purpose only: to send out stunning images of the food he serves at his lauded, vegetable-focused restaurant, Arpège, and for that reason he is almost certainly the very best chef in the world to follow. You will want to literally eat his feed. (Bonus: Thanks to the time difference, American followers on the East Coast usually wake up to his shots — a very pleasant way to start each day.) Here, then, are more than 50 of his greatest hits (culled from nearly 1,500 tweets). Bonne table.
