* Parodied in the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode "Creme Fraiche", where Randy Marsh gets obsessed with cooking and literally gets turned on by it thanks to The Food Network. Going as far as to masturbate to it and have a [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything phone chat]] with them.

* Carl's Jr. commercials are arguably an example of this Trope taken to its logical conclusion. They feature scantily-clad young ladies eating burgers. But the way the women are dressed and made up makes them look incredibly skanky, and the burgers are so large and dripping with...stuff that they barely look appetizing. It's a bit like watching ''bad'' porn: rather than be titillating, the commercials make you feel ashamed and nauseous.

* In a possibly banned but humorous Doritos commercial, a nerd feasts on a bag of Doritos, only to get some of the cheese powder on his face, which an attractive athletic girl licks before running off. Intrigued, he intentionally spills Dorito crumbs all over the crotch of his pants and as he was hoping , the same attractive girl runs towards him... Only to be knocked to the ground by a very fat dude who has his eyes on the same prize. The Nerd's eyes widen considerably and we fade to black.

Borderline-ubiquitous in Japanese media. Almost every anime and manga has a scene of food-focus, and many are entirely about food--and [[Manga/{{Toriko}} not always in restaurant settings]].

* Although ''[[Manga/AhMyGoddess Oh My Goddess!]]'' is more well-known for CostumePorn, TechnologyPorn, and SceneryPorn, there was a case of this in a manga chapter where [[LoveGoddess Peorth]] tried to woo [[NiceGuy Keiichi]] by preparing him a huge, elaborate feast "which insisted on being eaten"... Even after that fiasco, Keii proved he was AboveTheInfluence and still had a nice, light dinner with [[MagicalGirlfriend Belldandy]].

* The ''{{VideoGame/Touhou}}'' doujin series titled ''Koishi the Loving Gourmet'', in which the eponymous character (who is InvisibleToAdults, btw) is sharing the meal with other Gensokyo residents. And by 'sharing', we mean that she's dining without paying-- if they don't know you're there, they can't charge you any.
* The fanfiction ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/953674 A Feast Of Foods]]'' parodies Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire's tendency to use this.

* Verbal food porn would show up in some Creator/LaurelAndHardy movies - in "Pardon Us" they're in prison going on a hunger strike, when a guard lures them out of it by describing a sumptuous feast being served in the mess hall (which of course was a lie). In "Block-Heads", Ollie reunites with his long-lost Army buddy Stanley and invites him home to his wife's cooking that he lovingly describes. Naturally, his wife isn't keen on the idea (it being their anniversary is one reason).

** The reason it's "especially" in Farmer Boy? Almanzo's family was much more well-off than Laura's. Laura's family had one or two cows at a time. Almanzo's had six or more-- it's mentioned that Almanzo only milks the old, gentle ones. So the quantity and variety of food affordable to young Almanzo is something that Laura probably never experienced, and that made it special.

** ConversationalTroping in ''Discworld/TheFifthElephant'', when Vimes reflects that the way people think about food and sex are comparable: "it fascinated people, they sometimes bought books full of complicated recipes and interesting pictures, and sometimes when they were really hungry they created vast banquets in their imagination - but at the end of the day they'd settle quite happily for egg and chips. If it was well done [[{{Metaphorgotten}} and maybe had a slice of tomato]]."

** It has the beginning of "The Eleventh Hour", where the Doctor snacks at young Amy Pond's house after regenerating. First, she fried some really delicious-looking bacon, which the Doctor sadly rejected. Then she made what was probably the most beautiful-looking bowl of baked beans ever (though the sight of him spitting it out on the sink [[NauseaFuel might put off some people]]). Then she gave him bread with some butter, which for some reason looks really mouth-watering. After rejecting it, the Doctor finally picks his snack of choice: fish fingers and custard. Oh, and he pours the custard to a big glass bowl. Mmm........

* In his "Beyond the Pale" special, Comedian Jim Gaffigan describes the Food Network as porn when you're hungry. "'What are you watching?' 'Uh...uh, Food Network...' 'Why are your pants off?' 'I-I like food...a ''lot''.'"
* In his special "Hot and Fluffy" Creator/GabrielIglesias remembers phone sex with his former girlfriend, who shared his love of food. Instead of telling him what she was wearing she described what she was baking: "Chooooocolate....caaaake..."

* Done in a rather bizarre way in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'', where the waiters in the restaurants of Lumiose City (except the Sushi High Roller) give you some rather detailed descriptions of the outright ''weird'' entrees. For example, the third course at the two-star Restaurant Le Yeah is "Azure Bay Slowpoke Tail [with] Payapa Berry crudités glazed in extra virgin Oran oil". The chef claims that "it has been described as the gastronomical equivalent of a Gastly glaring at a Hex Maniac". The fouth is cheese made from an Arbok's Toxic venom, aged up to 180 years; the chef claims that "simply biting into this blue cheese will give off an odor so foul, your nose hairs will burn." [[SarcasmMode (Sure... Sounds delicious.)]]

* ''WebVideo/EpicMealTime'', but can border on the {{Squick}} side sometimes because it is not the kind of [[{{WAFF}} soft, loving and tender porn]]; WebVideo/EpicMealTime is the manly, bacon filled, made of meat food porn for you perverts out there and one of these men is a trained chef. Think about that for a while. Almost as if completely Lampshading themselves, videos for the past few months have much more frequently featured a bevy of attractive ladies eating in a much more sensual fashion alongside the super-carnivores... Well as sensual as you can be when eating a bacon big mac wrapped in bacon stuffed inside a pizza and covered in more bacon, then deep fried.

* The concept is discussed on the cooking blog [[http://culinarybrodown.com/2014/07/funnel-cake-burger-on-the-concept-of-foodprn/ Culinary Brodown]], to the effect that feeling vaguely ashamed is part of the experience of traditional pornography, and that food porn should be no different-- so glamorous food photography technically should not be called "food porn" unless it's greasy, sugary, unhealthy junk food that makes you feel guilty for ogling it with desire.

** Another food porn accomplishment for Disney came about during a Disney Channel special called "The Plausible Impossible". In it, Walt Disney himself describes in mouthwatering detail the food on a table (as it is being enticingly animated) to Donald Duck in order to draw him into into demonstrating for the audience. See ''[[https://youtu.be/39z1MrlPYxE?t=1092]]'' for the...tastiness.

-->''"Oh yeah...glaze the fuck out of that chicken..."''
* ''WesternAnimation/TimeSquad'': This trope was taken to an almost literal meaning, as most of the food shown was either phallic (French bread, sausages, carrots, Cheez Whiz from the can [which Tuddrussel shakes up and squirts into his mouth on "Day of the Larrys"], and the always-popular banana [which Larry used twice to trip Tuddrussel as seen in "The Clownfather" and "Hate and Let Hate"]), vagina- or womb-like (pies [none of which was cherry], a turkey which Larry pumped full of gravy on "Ex Marks the Spot" [even the gravy stains all over the walls, Larry, and Tuddrussel's hands looked...''off''], souffles [Tuddrussel ate one on "Sandwich By Any Other Name" and said, "My tongue feels like it's wrapped in a lace doily and headed off to the ballet!"], an ice-cream taco on "Forget the Alamo" [probably one of the few things that had a cherry on it], and an actual cherry on "Ex Marks the Spot," which was put on top of a gravy-smothered turkey, then sank inside of it), testicular-looking (grapes, olives, and nuts), or resembled ejaculate (the aforementioned Cheez Whiz from "Day of the Larrys" and the aforementioned gravy from "Ex Marks the Spot.") In fact, the beginning of "Ex Marks the Spot" in particular is an extended metaphor for sex, all done with the use of food.

* The Creator/TexAvery cartoon "What's Buzzin', Buzzard?" addresses its WWII-era audience enduring meat rationing with two hungry vultures, one of whom rhapsodizes about how he'd love a steak, going into descriptive detail while the screen shows a beauty shot of a steak - then a title card reading "5 Minute Intermission for Drooling"(which lasts about two seconds). Then, at the end of the cartoon an announcer breaks in with "Ladies and gentlemen, due to overwhelming popular demand, we're going to show the steak again!" and back to the beauty shot.

In ''IC America'', Morimoto consistently has the best presentation scores of any chef that appears.
