We all watch it, usually licking our lips and salivating uncontrollably. It’s everywhere in our society, from storefronts to your great aunt’s Pinterest. Food porn is a delicious perversion, and it’s about time for a close-up. The Food Porn Party NYC exposes a variety of gourmet eats in a dozen short films as part of the Food Film Fest. But this is no tease; audience members are invited to consummate—or rather, consume—all the food and beverages appearing onscreen. And when the packaging is stripped off, things really start to heat up. Mixed berries do it three ways, and the Burmese feluda gets exotic. Momofuku Milkbar, David Burke Kitchen, and Top Pot Doughnuts are just a few who will bare it all. For a more intimate experience, get serviced in the fondue lounge with succulent bites and simmering cheeses, or take in the late-night food burlesque show.
