(lileks.com/institute/gallery) The Food Network this is not. A comedic celebration of culinary Americana from the 1940s to ’60s, GORF makes you glad Spam is no longer welcome in the four major food groups. Three main sections (Recipe Books, Potpourri, Bad Ads) take you down the memory lane of such unsightly victuals as ”Susan’s Party Sandwich Loaf” (think Wonder Bread meets Cool Whip) and kitschy ads for various wunder-appliances (”The Shelvador,” anyone?). Though devoid of the bells and whistles that are de rigueur in most sites these days, GORF is none the weaker for it. After all, do you really want to witness animated ”Beef Porcupines”?
