Food Porn: Pornburger

The first time I had a serious boner with food was when I saw Nigella Lawson cooking sumptuous feasts for an X-mas show on the BBC. It was intense, arousing, appetizing and freaking hot. The second time I had an erection with food was because of a Lazy Mary’s lemon FUCKING tart in a renowned NYC culinary establishment. Don’t ask me why but seeing it and eating it was a whole Proust’s Madeleine effect, with the shame of an involuntary public boner. At Le Tag Parfait, we are food lovers and Porn fans. Consequently Food Porn is quite something BIG for us, because it’s the natural mix of  two of our most intense passion and addiction.

Food and Sex are provoking pure desire. They maintain a close relationship firstly because of the intense sensation of satisfaction, comfort, derivative satiety and well being they can produce. They even have their own happy ending: orgasm and foodgasm. But also they are close because they both appeal primary instincts: survival and reproduction (interdependent). For instance, when you see or think to a good plate your natural reflex is to salivate, then you want to eat. Indeed, it’s like feeling sexual desire and being aroused when you see or think to sex. Afterwards, you want to copulate.

The libidinal aspect of food is now a long lasting visual trend, used and abused by medias. But this time, we won’t spread ourselves on a pure Food Porn analysis, because many observers, critics, enthusiasts and fanatics are talking about it daily. Just check #foodporn on Twitter, Instagram of Pinterest to see the sweep of the Food Porn wave.

Recently, we heard of a new blog: Pornburger. A very obscene website created by the disturbed mind of a sick bastard called: Matthew Ramsey. Weekly, he offers to our eyes some phantasmagorical and pervert burgers creation, where everything is soaking with various sauces or cheese and clotted in shiny fat shells. It’s a visual orgy giving you lust for food, with dirty names such as:

Mac Daddy

The Slumberjack

The Bambi

The Merman

The_Bambi

All its creations are giving an instant saliva reflex on the mouth. The goal of Pornburger is simple:

“PornBurger.Me”… Sounds a little dirty, right? Maybe even a bit naughty? Good. Welcome, perverts.  This is not a health food blog, nor is it chock-full of recipes. Rather, it’s a year long venture into the dark arts of hamburgery. My goal? In short; pure carnal pleasure. In long; to concoct, photograph, and devour one sin-tillating burger a week, as an exercise in both my culinary and photographic passions. Lets get weird.

 

My favorite is The Dirdy Birdy:

This is a classic case of a racy burger flown a-fowl: A duck confit burger, scandalously dressed in fried chicken hearts, smothered in fig catsup, and bedded on a creamy spread  of chicken liver pâté. This is certainly one bird you won’t be bringing home to umami and daddy.

Oi Mathew Gordon Ramsey! Instead of being vague about your burgers “stack” and writing those frustrating hipsterish casual description, stop being selfish and give use the whole recipes. It’s some kind of evil torture you are doing, we decently can’t lick our screens forever, or drool like Homer freaking Simpsons, every time we see your photos. We are craving for your stuff. HELP us for God sake!
