VSL:FOOD // Show us the mayo shot!

Carnal knowledge began with the apple, and since those days in the Garden of
Eden, food porn — salacious, semi-sexual depictions of sandwiches and
stews — has proliferated. Take, for example, the Bible. Or the sight of Giada De
Laurentiis’s breasts, swaying pendulously over a cutting board. Now, with the
entirely sexless foodporndaily.com, gastroporn has finally moved to where
most actual porn resides by habit and aptitude: the Web.

The dot-com’s motto is “click, drool, repeat,” and true to its word,
the
site offers close-up, hi-definition pix of chicken, bacon, red and sweet
potato salad; roasted potatoes on marinated New York strip;
and lomo de
puerco adobado quesadillas. The cheese is gooey and yielding. (Is unguentary too
obscene a word?) The meat is seared and juicy and succulent. The tomatoes
are plump and perky. You don’t have to give a credit-card number, but do
keep the following in mind: Looking’s free, but eating’s gonna cost you!
