Food Porn

26 Jul

As previously stated, Anthony Bourdain had a positive influence on me starting in high school. So, I was terribly happy when I found one of his episodes called Food Porn.  This might be one of my all time favorites.  Now I’m realizing that I have a dirty addiction, which would explain my Filthy Meat Lust.  I love the talk of the voyeurism of eating and cooking.  My persian roommate in Milan loved to watch people eat.  Our other friend was so taken with the perfect bite that she reveled in the finding and sharing of them.  I definitely share these sinful pleasures and it certainly includes good beer.  I love exposing craft beer virgins to their first really good beer.  This is where food and beer will always win out over wine for me:  wine can only be so complex and have only so many varieties, but beer is infinitely diverse just as much as cuisine.

And then there’s the idea of cooking and brewing with love.  It sounds so cliché but I truly believe if you intentionally and actively insert love into what you create, you can taste it in the results.  And why not?  Chefs, cooks, brewmasters and homebrewers the world over are passionate about their creations from process to presentation.  Here are professions and hobbies that demand a full blown love affair from their partners.
