Amanda Simpson, author of the popular website FoodPornDaily.com will be in Salt Lake City, Tuesday, Nov. 2, to promote her new cookbook, appropriately called Food Porn Daily.
She will be The Kings English Bookshop, 1511 S. 1500 East, from 6 to 8 p.m.Simpson, whose website generates more than 50,000 hits a day, says that food porn is a high-resolution, close-up image of any food that gets your salivary glands flowing. The uncensored item could be a huge, juicy cheeseburger, or a healthy-yet-flavorful piece of grilled fish. Calories play no role in the definition.Like her website, Sampson's cookbook is filled with 230 recipes and 100 pictures of endless moments of drooling, like the photo of these peanut butter pretzel blondies topped with espressoo ganach.
