Food Porn? - The Glorification of Food within Culinary Programs

Programs like Man Finds Food or Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives present meals in very excessive forms. As a result, they glorify food in its presentation/texture to an exaggerated scale. Why do such programs do this?

  • It might also be worth exploring how the meals are not only excessive in these shows, but even the most simple dishes are enormous beyond need - particularly in shows based in the US. – Hannah Spencer 6 years ago

  • Another such show to consider would be Man vs. Food. I can understand undertaking a challenge, but I've never understood why one would want to willingly eat so much at once. – BethanyS 6 years ago
