This Meryl Streep Food Mash-Up Is Your New Instagram Obsession

Her long and much-lauded acting career has seen her take on a dizzyingly diverse array of roles, from an Abba-loving mum to an icy Anna Wintour clone, but Meryl Streep’s latest incarnation is arguably her best yet.

Triple Oscar winner Meryl is the unlikely subject of a weirdly enthralling Instagram account that’s about to change your feed for the better. Thanks to the magic of Photoshop, @tasteofmeryl shows Ms. Streep transformed into a variety of dishes. Thought that Instagram had reached peak avo-on-toast? Wait til you see a resplendent ‘70s Meryl sat atop a slice of the green stuff…

We told you it would change your world forever. Each bizarre shot has been perfectly curated to ensure that Meryl’s outfit or role perfectly aligns with the food in question. So, we’re talking a yellow-clad Meryl merging into a dish of cheesy Nachos…

And a sequinned Meryl emerging from a sushi roll.

This surreal, Dali-esque account is the baby of bonafide Instagram genius Stephanie Raye, who has gained around 34,000 followers in just under two months. Her bio for @tasteofstreep simply reads ‘Because what more could you want?’ – and we’re inclined to agree.

Before you get embroiled in heated office kitchen debates with your colleagues over the merits of each Meryl-food, we'll leave you with some of our @tasteofstreep favourites. You're welcome...

An Oscar-worthy cheese plate (five Meryls are better than one)...

Chicken Streeps - because who can resist a food pun?

And finally, a pizza worthy of Mamma Mia!
