Our week is a bit shorter this time around -- normally we round up our favorite photos on Wednesdays. But since we'll be enjoy Christmas Eve, here's an early gift: mouth-watering food photography.

We've said it before, and we'll say it again: Instagram was practically made for pictures of food. Gut Check has rounded up our favorite foodie accounts in St. Louis, but there are so many cool photos every week, we wanted to share what St. Louis' best chefs, bartenders and eaters are Instagramming. If you see a good one, send it to us!
