Food Porn and Masterchef Australia

Sheila is writing piece of food and wellness and used a term "Food Porn" and then a few moments ago I took a look at the blog Eating Victoria and saw a post on links to some of the best restaurants in the world - web Food Porn.   We are in such a different world when it comes to food imagery and presentation than we were only 20 years ago.

Meanwhile Masterchef Australia continues one, they produce 6 episodes a week and only eliminate two contestants a week.   They produce more footage than Big Brother!   On the upside, it is actually all very well done and it is keeping my attention.   The contestants are compelling (other than a couple like Sharnee), the hosts are engaging (though Gary and George need to stop saying GORGEOUS! and BEAUTIFUL!).

If you have not been watching, you should try and catch it.   I would love to see a Canadian version.

The original Masterchef in the UK in the early 1990s was of such a pretentious style that one could only watch it drunk and as a campy version of reality.

If you can not find Masterchef Australia or New Zealand, drop me a line and I will see what I can do about getting it to you.
