An Instagram account for foodies and fans of Meryl Streep? Yes, it exists
Double tap this
I was flicking through my cat-infested Explore tab on Instagram last evening when a photo of Meryl Streep steeping in a hot bowl of mac & cheese jumped out at me. She looked pleased. Relaxed. A Dalai Lama at peace with the world. And at midnight, that mac & cheese didn't just look delicious, it looked like the world's best mac & cheese. I would stick a fork in it and take a dip, too.
As it turns out, there's an entire Instagram account — @TasteofStreep — dedicated to photos of Academy-award winning actress dowager Meryl Streep frolicking in nearly every food group: Lounging on avocado and toast, riding on lucky charms, and hugging a giant corn dog.
The genius behind these mashups of Meryl Streep and food? Brooklyn-based actress and graphic designer Samantha Raye. In an email interview with Cut, Raye explains why Meryl has been cast as her leading actress for the account: "From what I've seen in interviews, she has a killer sense of humor and a love of life. No apologies for who she is, and honestly, I think she seems unbelievably cool. Pair that with food, and you've got one stellar combo."
Below, a selection of choice cuts to whet your appetite.
Avocado ain't the only thing that looks good on toast.
The only thing worse than finding someone else at the Oscars with the same dress as you.
Anyone remembers Lucky Charms? Meryl does.
Time for a Bloody Meryl.
Not your average stripper cake.
Because nachos makes everything better.
