Food Porn

I've come across two good pieces on food in media recrently. One is On the Media's Pornucopia which shows the similaries between the Food Network and porngraphy. The bit about Iron Chef is particularly amsusing. The other is Food Slut by Ann Bauer in Salon. Bauer's pieces chronicles her journey from novice food writer to elitist food critic.
