Girl Crushable: Esraa Ammar of ‘Boyfriend Replacement’

In the last few years, I’ve gotten into cooking for myself and my roommates; furthermore, I take actual enjoyment in learning about the mechanics of a specific dish. I’ll quiz my dad about what alterations he made to a given recipe, asking about minute details. I watch the Food Network while working out; not as a consumer, but as a cook.

And I’ve lost many an hour to gazing at food porn on the Internet. Which brings us to this week’s Girl Crush: Esraa Ammar of the food Tumblr Boyfriend Replacement. The Egypt-based Ammar reblogs stunning photos of savory and sweet dishes, with a good mix between high cuisine and accessible meals. Although she isn’t the one behind the lens, she has a great eye for composition and which foods just look incredibly appetizing. Here are some of our favorites from the last month, with the original sources.

Ammar also helps run a second blog, 2450 km, on which she and another woman, Joanna from Poland, post weekly photos from their respective hometowns. The two have never met, yet each week they compare their offerings side-by-side: City versus harbor, spring versus winter, castle versus woodlands.
