Food porn is a glamourized visual presentation of cooking or eating in advertisements, infomercials, blogs cooking shows or other visual media. These may be foods of a high fat and calorie content or exotic dishes that arouse a desire to eat or the glorification of food as a substitute for sex. Food porn often takes the form of food photography with styling that presents food provocatively, in a similar way to glamour photography or pornographic photography.
OK This is what I got when I googled what is Food Porn, kind of complicated right, I know, I am not a hardcore foodie but I never say no to something which is mouth watering
Pastries, especially Cheesecakes, all kinds of cheesecakes, give me a book a coffee and a cheesecake I am set for another 1 hour, trust me I won’t disturb you
The above place is called Poetry by love and cheesecake where they serve the best cheesecake in Mumbai, they recently opened another branch in Colaba, this is the same
I had visited this place like 4 times already and it kinda became my hangout adda so whenever I want a cheesecake and coffee and somewhere to sit in order to finish my book, I go here
And the Chicken Drumsticks you are seeing at the top are a part of a cooking show called “Hello Summer” which was produced by ZEE for their channel “Living Foodz”
So the dish is called Pumpkin Chicken Drumsticks which was made by Chef Gautam Mehrishi
So how did I got to click this picture and add food photography to my portfolio, I worked as an Associate Producer for that show and I am lucky enough to taste and click a picture of it, its Yummy as Fudge
And coffee, don’t even get me started, coffee is life and I can’t process without having minimum 2 coffees in a day
Bill Cosby once said that
“Like everyone else who makes the mistake of getting older, I begin each day with coffee and obituaries”.
And one last thing, this deserves a special mention, so by now you guys got an idea that I am a dessert lover and like 5 days ago I went to this place called Mainland China Asia Kitchen (Oberoi mall Mumbai)
Like everyone else I ordered Noodles, and a super yummy Chicken along with a soft drink for lunch, it was soo good, and now its time to have dessert right, I heard that they serve the best Coconut Carmel Custard and god it was DAMN GOOOOOD trust me you can’t miss it, so whenever you guys visit Asia’s Kitchen you have to try this
So this my share of food porn and looking forward to writing more articles on food which is good enough to inspire me and my taste buds.
