Today I want to talk about an amazing phenomenon that you can find on the Internet more and more, food porn. Before your mind goes places, let me specify that by food porn I mean incredible, crazy recipes you never dared to think of, not actual people having sex with food. On social media such as Imgur, Reddit, Tumblr, Buzzfeed you can find many pictures of them, as well as on food blogs of course. I must warn you some of these ideas are more on the crazy side than appetising, but let me share with you a few of the amazing things I came across.
First and foremost I want to introduce to you one that had some popularity on Imgur and that came back frequently on the site. The Shooter Sandwich, or as I like to call it: the mother of all sandwiches. The principle is to empty out a round loaf of bread and filling it with steak, bacon, mushrooms, sauces, cheese and then putting some weight on it so it goes from being the size of a big loaf of bread, to a normal sandwich. Fillings of course vary according to taste. Recipe.
This is one I’ve tried and it combines everything you could ever want in a cupcake: chocolate, nutella and ferrero rocher(with a hint of diabetes). Recipe.
As a sushi lover, I am eager to try this one. Whenever I personally thought of a sushi cake I had the idea of layers of many sushis, but deconstructing it like this is definitely intriguing. Recipe (don’t get put off by the French, the English version comes right after.)
The Turducken can be qualified as poultryception, a chicken within a duck, within a turkey. Something to try out for thanksgivings? Recipe.
Another one with something baked within another thing, but this time sweet. A pumpkin pie integrated into a cupcake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting, NOM! Recipe.
A good way to shake up a traditional pie is to make one in an apple. Also makes it look more modern. Recipe.
One of the simpler recipes here, but still full of taste, the ultimate peanut butter and jelly sandwich. A combination of 3 different spreads on each slice brings 9 different flavours. The different spreads used are listed below.
This last one is by far the weirdest I have seen, it combines pizza and a cocktail. Because if you love pizza and cocktails why make your life difficult by having them separately? Recipe.
All right enough recipes, I hope you enjoyed them. Please don’t try to google food porn…unless you’re into that.
