Plot Synopsis

Host Michael Chernow, New York restaurateur and co-owner of The Meatball Shop, searches for the most buzzed about food in America. Michael travels across the United States to meet today's tastemakers -- the everyday people behind the online posts using the #foodporn hashtag -- and discovers what made the meal so worthy to share online. Plus, Michael meets with the chefs and restaurants responsible for creating the dishes to find out what's in them and why they are popular. As Michael travels across America to foodie cities like New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Miami, Austin, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas, he uncovers delectable dishes such as Lobster pop-tarts, the ramen burger, a pizza pot pie, a breakfast ice cream cake, a Filipino Kamayan-style feast and more. FYI premiered the pilot of FOOD PORN on Thursday, October 15, 2015 at 3pm ET/PT as a sneak peek of the series, seven weeks before the official series premiere on Thursday, December 3, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT. Bethenny Frankel is an executive producer of this series. The 13-episode second season of FOOD PORN premiered on Sunday, May 14, 2017 from 10-11pm ET/PT, as FYI debuted back-to-back new episodes. In Season 2, Michael discovers new food trends and uncovers secret culinary hotspots with dishes that aren't even featured on the menu. From Hollywood's most exclusive dinner party, to a former church turned restaurant in Charleston and an innovative food truck in Portland that serves up cheeseburger dumplings -- viewers will be drooling over these mouth-watering meals. In the season opener (10pm), "Ice Cream Insanity," Michael sets out to discover the most outrageous ice cream creations seen on social media. In NYC, Black Tap's whimsical and over-the-top shakes create an explosion of sweet goodness with every sip. Blending tradition into the mix, Ample Hills Creamery uses old school techniques to create playful flavors like the popular cream cheese vanilla bean ice cream infused with homemade buttercake. Rolling out a new menu every four weeks, Salt & Straw in Portland uses fresh and local ingredients for innovative flavors like strawberry honey balsamic with black pepper ice cream. At The Church Key in Los Angeles, the Flaming Alaska dessert is so hot, it's on fire. Then, in the night's second new episode (10:30pm), "Off the Menu," Michael uncovers the most crave-worthy, top-secret dishes that never appear on menus. His first discovery is in Charleston, at Callie's Hot Little Biscuit where customer's line up to get a taste before it sells out. His next find is a bite-sized pillow of goodness -- a pizza muffin specially crafted at Portland's Sizzle Pie that serves over 50 varieties of pizza. Next, Michael heads to NYC for Pig and Khao's off the menu sensation, the 9-spice southern curry fried chicken wings. And finally, Michael heads to his own NYC restaurant Seamore's, to sample the kitchen's latest creation: a soft-shell crab sandwich, freshly fried to crispy perfection. Other featured dishes this season include a pizza muffin, a deep-fried strawberry rhubarb pie in Nashville, a lavish poke bowl in Hawaii and more.
On Sunday, July 30, 2017 at 10pm ET/PT, FYI premiered the Season 2 finale of FOOD PORN. In the season ender, "For the Love of Pie," Grandma's traditional pies get a modern face lift with some of the most inventive creations capturing the hearts of pie lovers everywhere. Michael Chernow visits Farmhouse in Nashville where they take an old-fashioned strawberry rhubarb pie and deep fry it into a brand new, golden brown favorite. In Los Angeles, the Pie Hole's multi-textured earl grey tea pie is baked within a special pie crust, made using a secret 4th generation family recipe. Back in Nashville, Buttermilk Sky Pie gives customers a nostalgic blend of a childhood favorite with its coveted s'mores pie -- no campfire required.
