Food Porn

This is usually a blog about food, or conversations around food, gone awry.  This edition is no exception.  The topic is food porn.  The question is why?  Why would someone think it’s a good idea to make their food look, well, like porn.  I can make an exception for cakes…..   Those invite all sorts of artistic license, but general appetizers, main courses, soups and salads….   I think it’s just wrong.

That being said, when it happens to you….   When you innocently order something on the menu at a well loved restaurant.  It’s hilarious.  Wrong, but hilarious.  So when it happened to me, I had to take the picture.  I couldn’t help myself.  And now I have to share it.

We’d gone to a Turkish restaurant.  The Spinach Tar Tar was highly recommended.  We had no idea what we were in for until the wait person brought out two plates with green, breast shaped mounds, each with an olive in the center that perhaps they’d missed something and given us Spinach Ta Tas instead.

  1. heh heh! Too funny!
    At first I thought, “how on earth could they not know”… then I wondered if the chef giggles and says nothing each time he gets to send out 2 of that order 😉
    But of course, I want to know…. how WAS the spinach tartare?

    It was tasty but needed something, but I’m not sure what.
