Food Porn! The Popular Name for Pictures of Food That Make You Salivate

Thanks so much to everyone who came out for the Restaurant Source’s 50th Anniversary Sale-A-Bration!!  The event was a huge success and a lot of fun!  We’re so excited to experience the next 50 years!

On another note, anyone ever heard of food porn?  Well get your mind out of the gutter, this is a PG rated blog!  Food porn is a new term used to refer to a spectacular visual presentation of cooking or eating in advertisements, infomercials, cooking shows or other visual media.  Food porn tends to be high in fat and calorie content and often contains pictures that make you salivate.  Obviously food photography has been around for a while, but the fact that people are now reffering to it as “food porn” is a new concept.  Often times it’s food that people think of as comfort food or savory items.  Some like to refer to food porn as food you can almost taste because the texture and colors are so life-like!  Sometimes, less is more on a plate too.  Too many ingredients can be overwhelming and it can distract the viewer from the fantastic pictures in front of them.  People are becoming more educated in their food choices and our expanding their horizons.  Food porn allows us to really experience food with all five of our senses.  Another perk to food porn?  Being fully present and aware when you’re eating is the best way to maintain portion control because you are really able to enjoy your food rather then just satisfy a hunger need!

If you’re not hungry after seeing these pictures, I will be shocked! I think it’s lunch time…
