Paris-based pastry chef Tal Spiegel has two passions: cakes and shoes. And to the delight of his 35,000 Instagram followers, he photographs them together.

Nearly every day, Spiegel publishes a new photo to his feed, “Desserted in Paris,” one of Instagram’s many “food porn” channels. “I’m exploring all the best desserts Paris has to offer along with my huge shoe collection,” Spiegel wrote about his project.

One word: Ananas! At @hugovictor_paris

“There is a natural connection between the colorfulness of desserts and shoes, and this is a project I just can’t stop!”

This one was starring at me at @lagrandeepicerie vitrine and I had to have it, plus it’s half savory half sweet!

A graduate of the Shenkar School for Design in Israel, Spiegel is now a recently qualified Pastry Chef from Parisian culinary arts school Ferrandi. And one follower made it clear why  Spiegel is gaining such traction on Instragram, commenting on his latest post, “Dessert and fashion are like a ray of sunshine!”
