Food Porn

I actually dislike the new and liberal uses of the word “porn” in conjunction with other things (ruins, cats etc), but I am going with the flow on this one as I know “food porn” is huge right now.  And mainstream?

My pictures are from a meal unlike anything I expect to ever experience again. El Bulli was the best restaurant in the world, until they closed. (Noma in Copenhagen now has the honor of world’s best.) El Bulli was only open part of the year, and getting reservations was extremely difficult; but the man behind this unique dining experience closed on his own terms to pursue other projects.
