I confess I was a little skeptical when Nora Ephron referred to an astonishingly beautiful photo of pizza in this interview:

But then I saw the photo:

In case you can't see the article, here's the relevant snippet:

<<Now that food as pornography has become cliché, does it correspond to your feelings about cooking and appreciating food?

It's so unfair to call it pornography, because it has such a negative connotation. That photograph of the pizza in this week's New York magazine, it's so beautiful. So I think of it more as art than pornography. Years ago, [Ephron's sister and frequent collaborator] Delia and I were working one day and the Martha Stewart Living magazine arrived and it had a photograph of a coconut cake on the cover, and we both looked at it and gasped. It was so beautiful. By the way, the woman who styled that photograph is the woman who did all the food in "Julie & Julia," Susan Spungen. It just seems unfair to call that pornography, just because I gasped when I saw it, and it made me want it. Immediately.
