James Deen, The Jewish Porn Star, Is Also A Food Blogger

70th Venice Film Festival - 'Canyons' - Photocall

James Deen loves food. In fact, that’s the name of his running food blog.

Hosted at comedy porn site WoodRocket and on its YouTube channel, the unconventional adult film star approaches food blogging in his own idiosyncratic way, ordering the entire menu at fast food joints and preparing the last meals of death row inmates. What else would you expect from the nice Jewish porn star who made a (non-porn) movie with Lindsay Lohan and the writer of “Taxi Driver?”

In one recent video, Deen goes around to fast food restaurants on his birthday asking for free food.

“As a Jew, I appreciate free food,” he says at his first stop, a Denny’s. “So I got bacon, bacon, bacon.”

In the webseries’ most recent episode, Deen concocts a Ramen Matzah Ball soup.

Speaking to Bon Appetit  (yes, that Bon Appetit), Deen said he would have been “a food critic if porn didn’t work out.” He attributes his love of finer cuisine to a job in France where he was treated to an extensive breakfast of meats and cheeses every morning.

However, his food webseries definitely has a junk food bent: episodes include ordering the full menu at Del Taco, taste testing ketchup, constructing (and eating) the world’s most expensive burrito, and exploring empanadas with Johnny Pacific (a restaurant, not another porn star).

Deen isn’t shy about his cultural identity, even in a field with few Jews. But speaking to Heeb Magazine, he made his Jewish food education growing up sound a little lacking: “I had Chinese food, sandwiches, latkes…that counts right?”
