Title: Food Porn
Post by: Jimbro3738 on 2014-03-24, 07:59:16
I'm  an amateur food lover who developed a love of Korean food while living there for a couple of years, but I'm nothing compared to expert Korean foodies who go the extra mile.

Some neighbours are cooking some' especially contagiously well-smelling, which crawls in here through the open window.
I'm thinking of beheading them and devouring all that myself. :chef:

Parody of popular Chinese show on British food goes viral (http://www.bbc.com/news/blogs-china-blog-27442398)

Quote
A parody of a highly successful Chinese food show called A Bite of China has gone viral in China, generating almost 800,000 views in just a few days.

Titled A Taste of Britain, it satirises the stereotypes of British food held by many Chinese people - some of whom label British cuisine as "simple and violent".

Created for an English talk show on China Radio International, the parody explains: "There is one secret known throughout all kitchens in Great Britain." The suspense continues: "From an early age, the British are taught...", it pauses, "that small potatoes cook faster than big ones".

Co-host Stuart Wiggin is seen carefully sprinkling salt on a potato, explaining that a tasty snack like this can keep British people going "literally all day long".

A Bite of China is a mainland Chinese effort, while Exploring China: A Culinary Adventure is BBC. Here's a Bite:

Perhaps the British make stargazy pie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Baked_stargazy_pie.jpg)...

...but in China they sell some odd food (http://travel.cnn.com/shanghai/life/5-extreme-foods-at-beijing-night-market-294439) too.

Switching kitchen, to Italian, Two Greedy Italians.







This series is a bit more twee than the Chinese ones, with too much antics, and too little food, but still watchable.

Pfft, they know we watch it for the interaction between Gennaro and Antonio while traveling through beautiful Italia and learning a bit about its customs. :P

Anyway, if you want a higher food density, just check out Gennaro's YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCU-9aBTeP3pJVutFppAr4Ng). But of course, there are some antics there as well...

I should have mentioned above that I've eaten both chocolate covered and roasted ants.

Anything chocolate covered is good. The roasted ants were nondescript.

BTW, anybody ever eaten chocolate covered bacon? Better than ants by a kilometer.

We need more porn. The original thread (https://web.archive.org/web/20140301201220/http://my.opera.com/community/forums/topic.dml?id=1820592) had more, starting with NOMA.



We also had Dumplings and Delicacies (http://web.archive.org/web/20130315191748/http://my.opera.com/community/forums/topic.dml?id=1215502) and Bread and Wine (http://web.archive.org/web/20131106101404/http://my.opera.com/community/forums/topic.dml?id=1737452).

Swedish pizza is a food group of its own, this one claimed to be the best in the world (http://www.thelocal.se/20150619/is-this-the-best-pizza-in-the-world):

(https://thedndsanctuary.eu/imagecache.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.thelocal.se%2Fuserdata%2Fimages%2Farticle%2Fw468%2F61cbf4740e6f1f8d529e6271b7a965e6f97fcb777fbc60235e7cfdf991cb0cfa.jpg&hash=3218bc1557f695f5bb8627d9e6f27bd9" rel="cached" data-warn="External image, click here to view original" data-url="http://www.thelocal.se/userdata/images/article/w468/61cbf4740e6f1f8d529e6271b7a965e6f97fcb777fbc60235e7cfdf991cb0cfa.jpg)

While the above pizza probably would make you pregnant just by looking at it too long, there are some much more appealing ones, like the award-winning bone marrow and cabbage  pizza (http://www.thelocal.se/20130607/48374)
Quote
A pizza adorned with smoked beef bone marrow, pickled cabbage and sour cream won the title of pizza baker of the year for Jonas Karlsson at the Swedish pizza championships this week.


"The winner has created a pizza with both love and passion, and with a great respect for the ingredients. The winner has pushed the pizza into the top echelons of modern gastronomy," said jury member Tommy Myllymäki in a statement.

Karlsson, who plies his trade as chef at Speceriet in central Stockholm, won with his creation entitled "Tarte flambé à la Karlsson".

The young Stockholmer beat off the challenge of Frida Ceveryd from Stantons in Varberg and Adem Tokmak from Vapiano to win the finals held at Kungsträdgården in central Stockholm on Wednesday.

Ceveryd competed with "Horseradish luxury" and Tokmark produced "Vitello con Ruccola".
