Indeed. Have you ever heard the phrase 'food porn' ?


HA! I thought the same the instant I saw this post. While certainly not appropriate for children, or maybe adults for that matter, the Anthony Bourdain Season 5 episode about food porn came to mind. I won't link here lest anyone be offended, but you can google it if you want. Funny to a foodie with a sense of humor, maybe not as much to someone watching with children or a tighter rain on questionable humor.

When I titled this thread I mentioned the Food Network partly because I thought it made a good metaphor for the idea I wanted to discuss, partly because it seemed like a good hook (people would want to read it) and partly because it seemed kind of pithy. It was never intended to be taken so literally.
I don't think the issue was ever cooking per se, but rather the point at which a healthy indulgence becomes unhealthy and whether it is happening on a wide scale in society.
Any passion can be a good thing or a bad thing. A love of wine is good unless it goes to far then it just makes you an alcoholic. An appreciation for the news might make you well informed and interesting or paranoid and homebound. It is a question of degree.
I just wanted to know what other people thought.
Yeah :) Just seems odd that you picked on the Food Network. There is alot of worse stuff people could be watching!

The Food Network isn't about anticipating the great reveal of the food gradually - it's about learning how to cook! A useful skill!

It's all in Plato...what DO they teach them in school these days?

I do think he might be a bit surprised by the "food porn" that has become so common. Though in Screwtape he does talk about becoming a connoisseur of food as a kind of gluttony, one particularly attractive to men.

However, I think that this attitude to food, and home decorating, etc, is really driven by marketing. An attempt to make money by artificially inflaming the appetites. This also happens with sex, which is why our consumer culture is so very obsessed, but there is a difference. With sex, it seems to naturally want to spread itself everywhere and so people take advantage of it. Other bodily appetites don't seem to become quite so all consuming for so many without help.
