I’m not above a little food porn:
Food is the human condition in a nutshell. It is crucial sustenance, it is sensual pleasure, it is exquisite regret, it is warm camaraderie, and it is a microcosm of every single day, all on a plate. If you’re me, and I’m having a good day, this is a plate with some rice, shrimp, mussels, fish, calamari, some saffron… anyway, food is great.
I also think that food is worth talking about beyond simply “this is delicious”. Food is a shared experience that helps bond people, sometimes whether or not the food is good.
Food is also, occasionally, ridiculous:
This is the broad spectrum of food, and I love it.
