The Rise of Food Porn

Can a meal alter your perspective or offer you profound insight?

Venngage says so, in a report by Sara McGuire.

You have probably heard the saying, we eat with our eyes. Presentation affects how appetizing a dish appears–a beautifully presented dish can wet our hunger, while a sloppily plated dish can sour it. These days, with foodie culture featuring so prominently in the media, the standards for what is expected of restaurants is higher than ever. People are travelling far to find new and exciting flavors.

The proliferation of food photography and recipe sharing on social media has spurred a wide appreciation of food visually. Millions of photographs on Pinterest and Instagram offer home cooks inspiration, entertainment and awe. Food cinematography tantalizes viewers with up-close shots and creeping camera rolls over table spreads.
