DID ANTHONY BOURDAIN INVENT FOOD PORN ???
The BOOK THAT MADE TONY FAMOUS
BUT DID HE INVENT FOOD PORN ???
Well Tony popularized the term FOOD PORN, and did so without a doubt more than any one single person in this World. Yes Tony did, and is still doing so, with his wonderful Food Shows (Food Porn) : NO RESERVATIONS, PATS UNKNOWN, The LAYOVER and other Bourdain Shows, all absolutely wonderful, and as only Tony could do, “Fugettabout it FOOD NETWORK, you can Only DREAM of Doing something as Masterful as Mr. Bourdain.” Keep Dreaming ..
So Who Did INVENT FOOD PORN, you want to know? Well a writer named Rosalind Coward in her book FEMALE DESIRE (1984) …
Here you go, the passage Mis Coward wrote, using the term Food Porn for the first time in the History of the World ..
“Cooking food and presenting it beautifully is an act of servitude. It is a way of expressing affection through a gift… That we should aspire to produce perfectly finished and presented food is a symbol of a willing and enjoyable participation in servicing others. Food pornography exactly sustains these meanings relating to the preparation of food. The kinds of picture used always repress the process of production of a meal. They are always beautifully lit, often touched up.” (p. 103)
There it is, the Invention of FOOD PORN, not Anthony Bourdain but Rosalind Coward
